Avocado Honey Dip

Share

As many of you know, we're big on dips in our house. I find that if you put out a big platter of veggies next to a yummy dip for plunging into, the variety of vegetables you can get into kids' little bodies increases by....well, a lot! Case in point was the day that I made this Avocado Honey Dip. Chloe had just woken up from her nap and was sitting with me at the kitchen counter while I was concocting this creamy spread. She asked if she could try some, so I made her a little plate with baby carrots, sugar snap peas and pretzels. Chloe dipped a few times and then, in the time that it took me to turn around to grab something and turn back, she had her little arm wrapped around the mixing bowl and the spatula I had used to stir it in her mouth. Eventually I surrendered and let her finish it all.

There's nothing worse than sending your child to school with a lunch box packed full of fresh veggies only to have them come back home exactly the way you sent them: uneaten. My advice? Add some of this dip and see if it adds to your kid's fun of wanting to munch and crunch on the good stuff that goes with it!

    Any Suggestions for a dairy-free option of this? I have a little girl with cow milk allergies… I’m sure whipped coconut milk would change the flavor and consistency… thanks!

    This dip looks delicious. It’s easy enough that my 4 year-old could help make it. Thank you!

    You could definitely see your expertise within the paintings you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

    My 2-year-old said “too sour” so I think she was responding to the lemon. You might want to try with less or no lemon to start if you have a kid with a palette as sensitive as mine:)

    Is there anything we could subsitute the cream cheese for? My family and I do not like cream cheese a whole lot so I would love to be able to switch it out! :)

    We’re starting to get some great FL Avocados in of late! Will give this a shot for sure!

    @Mindee… love the coconut milk yogurt idea! We drink coconut milk by the 1/2 gallons!

    I will probably try substituting coconut milk yogurt to make this dairy free as well (for our needs). just a little less.

      Do you make your own coconut milk yogurt? I’ve been looking for a dairy-free yogurt alternative, but haven’t had any luck.

    Do you think you could substitute plain yogurt instead of cream cheese? I have the yogurt on hand but not the cream cheese…

    my 19-mo-old chews but spits out anything hard — raw carrots, sugar peas, green beans, peppers, etc. he has all his teeth. any tips on getting him to swallow small chunks or something else to dip besides pita bread?

      You can cook the carrots a bit, so that they’re still firm but not so tough to bite/chew (I microwave them)

    My toddler used to like avocadoes when he was a baby. Now that he’s a little older he tends to get choosy with foods; nonetheless, he loves to dip, so this may be the solution for his estranged relationship with avocadoes.
    Your recipes are so easy.
    Thanks!
