Banana Avocado Mousse

Banana Avocado Mousse Baby Food from Weelicious

Share

Once in a while, when Kenya starts to go a little batty while I'm cooking in the kitchen, I'll stop what I'm doing to make something with him. Even at 18 months it's amazing how much he's capable of doing. He can totally be my co-pilot on this recipe. He helps me peel a banana and plop it in the blender. Then, I'll wash and scoop the avocado and yogurt into the blender and then let him press the buttons so he can watch it all mix together. His eyes light up so brightly at this culinary achievement. It's amazing how including Kenya in the process makes him want to enjoy new foods and snack on healthy favorites. Even better, helping Mommy out in the kitchen chills him out a little and takes that crazy baby energy down a notch.
Bananas and avocado are not only monsters of nutrition, but they also make a creamy and delicious combination for babies and toddlers. Avocados are rich in the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C and E while bananas are filled with magnesium and potassium. This puree is so thick and rich, I decided to get all fancy and call it a mousse -- yes, we’re so fancy here at weelicious :).
I wrote that this recipe makes enough for 3 toddler servings, but after Kenya and I finished making this batch of Banana Avocado Mousse and dug the spatula in the blender for bite after bite, nothing remained at the end....except for the smiles on our faces.

    I just gave this to my 7 month old and he loved it! Which isn’t a real surprise because he loves avocado and banana both and he just started yogurt so it is sooo perfect! I even liked it and I’m not a huge banana fan

    Hi, I was also wondering about the milk. My baby is 9 months and I have also been advised not to serve milk before a year.
    Thanks!

    My 6mth old has just started solids. Can I make it without yoghurt & milk, or can I substitute something else as pediatrician has advised not to give milk before 1 year.

    Do you think this would turn brown if you saved some for the next day?

      Just the top would turn brown, so just wipe off the top and toss it and the rest will be good :)

    This recipe is heavenly! I have always had the ingredients on hand- an organic whole milk yogurt is a staple in my kid’s diet. I have tried to make fruit smoothies, but they fight every time-this natural yogurt does have strong taste even when blended with fruits. This combination was a hit. My baby devoured it and I have a sense of victory; What a blessing it is to feed your child something so wholesome and nutritious and for them to enjoy eating it too!Thanks!
