Guacamol-wee Baby Food from Weelicious

Since Kenya started eating solids, whenever he sees an avocado he lets out a little squeal of joy. I can just say the word "avocado" and he will look up at me excited. Even when he's got a cold or just feels under the weather, few foods sound or look appealing to him, but the avocado is his comfort food.

My husband could happily eat a huge bowl of guacamole for breakfast, lunch and dinner and be satisfied. I figured that the apple wouldn't fall far from the tree and it didn't. Both of my boys love this guacamol-wee recipe.

This fruit, yes, avocado is actually a fruit, is an excellent source of unsaturated fatty acids and has a higher proportion of good fat than any other food except olives. Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including 4% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E, 4% vitamin C, 8% folate, 4% fiber, 2% iron, 4% potassium, with 81 micrograms of lutein and 19 micrograms of beta-carotene. All important nutritional building blocks for your baby. Also, did you know that avocados have 60% more potassium then bananas and they're fiber content is higher than any other fruit? This recipe will be a total winner with your baby.

    I was wondering if you can freeze this and it if it would still be edible? I'm assuming yes but I thought I would ask the expert. :)

    I've been following your site for a while and I love it! I'm now pregnant with my 3rd little one so I'm re-reading your puree recipes. One question, can things (like this recipe) with avocado's in it be frozen? I realize this is a really simple recipe and doesn't need to be frozen, but I don't use regular tomatos for much (love the grape ones for snacking though!) so I'm afraid the left over tomato will go bad before I use it again. So, if I could quadruple the recipe and use a whole tomato, that would be great! That's why I'm wondering if it would freeze well. Thanks for all you do!
