Key Lime-Avocado Mousse Recipe
Toddler boss and I were hanging out at Whole Foods during sample time (our favorite time of day) and we came across a lady peddling this key lime-avocado mousse thing, claiming that it tasted just like key lime pie (my fave). Ummm...ok, if you say so.
I reluctantly gave it a try subbing the honey for agave nectar and it turns out that she was right...so right. Who knew?! It was soooo good and the best thing about this yummy treat is that it's so good for you too. Packed with good fats, antioxidants and almost 20 different vitamins and minerals, avocados are some of the best things that you can feed your bambini and this is one more easy way to serve them.
RECOMMENDED AGES: 12+ months due to the limes and strawberries (if desired). Otherwise, avocados are okay starting at 4-6 months and the vanilla extract and agave are okay after 9 months.
CHILL TIME: 30 minutes
SERVINGS: 4-6, depending on how many tiny tummies you're feeding
2 fresh avocados
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup agave nectar
1. Pit avocados and place into a food processor or blender.
2. Squeeze the lime juice directly into the food processor/blender.
3. Add vanilla extract and agave nectar.
4. Process/blend until smooth and creamy.
5. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
6. Serve cold in cute little shooter cups and garnish with strawberries, if desired.
