Healthy Baby Guacamole for weaning (6th to 8th month)

As a new dad working long hours at Food and Meal, finding time to cook nutritious meals for my 8-month old daughter can be challenging. But I’m determined to prepare healthy, homemade foods for her development. The other night, as I was rocking my sleepy baby girl, I glanced down and was met with the biggest, brightest eyes and smile that melted my heart. In that moment, I was inspired to try making her a wholesome version of a favorite snack from my childhood – guacamole!

While traditional guacamole contains onions, hot peppers and citrus that are too harsh for a little one, I thought why not create a mild, creamy “baby” adaptation using avocado, banana and Greek yogurt? It provides healthy fats their growing bodies need. I did a little happy dance thinking about her tasting the smooth, green goodness for the first time. Maybe she’ll even smash her hands in it and make a silly face that I can capture with my phone!

  • Place each avocado lengthwise on a cutting surface, and use a sharp knife to slice through the skin and around the large pit.
  • Twist to separate the halves. With a large metal spoon, carefully remove the pit, then scoop the flesh into a bowl. Discard the skins and pits.
  • Gently mash the avocado flesh with a fork or potato masher until a creamy, chunky balance is reached.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix until just combined. Season with additional spices to taste.
  • Serve immediately.



TIP: Avocados brown quickly, so this is not a good “meal prep” side dish. Just remember to prepare this right before serving—it can be mashed up in minutes. Leftovers may be stored in the refrigerator in a dish covered with plastic wrap touching the avocado to prevent oxidation. Scrape off the brown top layer before serving again the next day.

To make So-Good Guacamole, begin by chopping the avocado. Remove the seed, and then cut each half in half. Use a knife to slice the avocados in half. Place them on a cutting board or mortar. Grind them until they are a paste, and then add the cilantro and salt. Stir until the ingredients are well combined, and taste for seasoning. Lime juice and fresh garlic are recommended. Fresh garlic is more flavorful than bottled garlic. Salt brings out the flavors.

Next, slice the avocado in half. Remove the seed and cut each half in half. Use a mortar and pestle to make a paste. Then, add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Adjust seasoning to your personal taste. I liked the addition of a hint of lime, garlic and cumin, which added a nice touch to the guacamole. You can also use lemon or lime juice.

When making So-Good Guacamole, it’s important to get all of the ingredients ready. The avocados should be mashed with a fork, and the other ingredients should be chopped. Then, the rest of the ingredients should be mashed together. Once everything is mashed, the rest of the ingredients can be added. If you don’t have the time to prep the ingredients, you can omit the cilantro or leave it out altogether.

Once the guacamole has been whipped up, you can store it in the refrigerator. The avocados should be kept with a half-inch of water in the refrigerator. You can use a tablespoon of lemon juice to make the sauce softer and more spreadable. The lime juice should be squeezed to prevent browning. Alternatively, the avocados can be left out for several hours.

Diving deep into the Baby Guacamole world, here are some frequently pondered questions, answered just for you.

  • How long can I store Baby Guacamole?
    • Ideally, consume it fresh. However, if you have to store it, place it in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to one day. To avoid browning, place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole before sealing.

    • While avocados are nutritious, variety is essential. Introduce Baby Guacamole 2-3 times a week, while rotating with other nutritious foods.

    • While rare, avocado allergies do exist. Always watch for any signs of discomfort, itching, or rash after introducing any new food, including avocado.
