Looking for a quick and easy meal you can whip up in 10 minutes without turning on the stove? Make this fruity avocado dip on this hot summer day! This simple dish will be enjoyed by babies and adults alike.
Notes on ingredients
All you need for this simple meal are an avocado, a mango, a handful of strawberries, and a lemon. Make sure to use soft ripe fruits when serving babies and young toddlers. When pressed between two fingers, you want the fruit to be easily mashed to avoid choking hazards. Ripe fruits will also make the dip sweeter without added sugar.
Avocados are more common in savory dishes in the U.S., but in many cultures, avocados are eaten as a sweet dessert. If you haven’t yet, try out the sweet side of avocado, and drizzle some condensed milk on your portion. Please note that added sugar is not recommended for babies under 2.
