Knox Noms: Avocado

This is certainly one of the easiest baby food recipes EVER. Avocados are a great first food for babies and are probably one of the most complete produce items, nutritionally speaking. They’re loading with healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and good-for-you fats and oils. I used organic Hass avocados. To choose a good one, look for a dark green (nearly black) skinned oval fruit- it should give just slightly when you push on it but be firm- mushy ones are overly ripe. If you have never had avocado, it has a very fresh taste- it’s the main ingredient in guacamole and is also the green part inside of a California sushi roll.

You start with a ripe avocado:

Cut the fruit longways all the way around:

Twist and open. To remove the pit, wack it with your knife and pull out or use a spoon to scoop it out.

Score the flesh of the avocado down to the skin in a grid pattern.

Use a spoon to scoop out the chunks.

Mush ’em up with a fork. Don’t be shy… really smooshy is the goal.

Voila!

Serve immediately or mix with rice cereal for this green concoction.

Avocado puree freezes very well, but if you store it in the fridge cut for more than a day, it’s going to turn brown on you, so eat it quick or freeze it! Knox gives it his seal of approval.

    Looks like we're working in the same order! Sweet potatoes first, then avocado. Peas were our latest. I wasn't successful at getting the shell removed from the peas very well, and gave up – bought the organic jarred peas. Connor's fav so far is avocado!
