This recipe is appropriate for ages 6 to 8 months. For older babies and toddlers, dice the same amount of fruit and drizzle yogurt on top. Make sure the avocados and fruit are ripe.
Make Ahead: The avocado will discolor slightly after a few hours' refrigeration. That will not affect the taste, but if you'd like to keep things pale green, dip the avocado in slightly acidulated water (with a little lemon juice) for a few minutes before adding to the food processor.
Servings: 3 cups
- 3 or 4 avocados
- 3 or 4 bananas
- 3 or 4 pears
- Vanilla yogurt (optional; for 8 months and up)
Place the avocados, bananas and pears in the bowl of a food processor. Puree until chunky or smooth.
If desired, add a dollop or two of yogurt. Serve right away or refrigerate.
