Can avocado’s be a more perfect food for kids? We love avocados!
- Avocados are creamy, delicious, and easy for babies and toddlers to eat.
- Avocados are a great source of fiber 14 grams per avocado!
- Avocados have literally been proven to be anti-inflammatory! With phytosterols, anti-oxidants, and omega 3 fatty acids, inflammation doesn’t stand a chance!
- Avocados promote blood sugar regulation. They are super low in sugar and carbs, while being high in fiber! (favorite source for all food benefits!)
You can purchase pre-made guacamole, jusst check the ingredients to verify it has ingredients you can pronounce! Or make your own guacamole by mashing the flesh of an avocado with some salt and lime juice. The smoother your guacamole is, the easier it will be to squeeze through a piping bag.
So our snack for today was these delicious tomato avocado cups! To make these, we
- Got our supplies: cherry tomatoes (or grape tomatoes), guacamole, a knife, and a bag for piping,
- Sliced some of tomatoes in half, and others, we just sliced the top off. Made a small slice off the bottom for the tomatoes we wanted to stand straight up.
- Scooped the seeds out of the tomato.
- Filled a sandwich bag with guacamole, and cut a small corner off to fill the cavity with the guacamole.
If you are bringing these to a party, you can use a piping tip to make the guacamole more decorative!
And that’s it! Once you get the hang of it, these are quite quick and easy to make.
And look at those colors! So festive for any holiday party tray!
