Avocado Medley

Avocado ….. hhmmm, I have no idea of the preparation or whatsoever with it because I never had one in my whole life (so far). Ok ok …. Not that I never …. I did try it ‘once’ which is the avocado ice cream my mom made and to be frankly, I just do not fancy the taste of it at all despite that my mom bet me a RM50 notes if I am able to finished my entire cup of Avocado ice cream (of course, I never did.)

I read from the internet that Avocado is a brilliant fruits for bb’s brain and physical development which is full of vitamins, minerals and monounsaturated fats (good fats for maintaining a healthy heart). Seeing mommy JT’s baby loves avocado so much, I decided to give it a try.

I picked up a dark green and bumpy avocado from the market (a ripe one), sliced in half, take the meat out, mashed and served just to see how my Angel likes it plain. 1st feeding, she makes a frowning looks, 2nd feeding she makes another frowning looks and actually peek into her feeding bowl, by the 3rd feeding, she is actually running away from her feeding spoon which is the 1st time ever when it comes to food!! I think she has actually found her ‘least favourite’ food for the very first time coz she used to wallop up everything that I served. (It must be in the genes I guess). I think in the later afternoon for her tea time, I will try to serve her the fruit again and this time, I am going to mix the avocado into an Avocado and Bananas Medley ration 1:1.

The results?? …… she manages to finish the entire bowl of the medley! I am glad :)

............ Avocado and Banana Medley :)

Hi Pei Wun, Thanks for visiting my blog and do try out avocado with bananas, very yummy!!

Joanne, yes ... she doesn't like the plain avocado taste (me too :P). It's not that I plan to add bananas into it, that's the only fruit which I can find at home at that moment. Glad they turn out just fine. I think it's time to some groceries shopping tomorrow :)

Aiyo, I would have take the RM 50 bet to finish up the ice cream!! I don't mind the taste... hehe!

Well, I think I'm going to try again to feed Ryan the avocado with banana.

Previously I asked my hubby to buy the avocado only and forgot about the banana. So, in the end i finished up the whole avocado after Ryan rejected it and hubby claimed that the avocado isn't cheap wor... :P

My boy trush it out with his tongue when I first gave him avocado mixed with his cereal. This is the first food he rejected.

Maybe next time I shall try avocado+banana...surely taste good since banana is sweet.
