Healthy Kids Recipes: Avocado Boats


Children need a lot of energy during the day to help them learn to read, write, spell and do the rest of their schoolwork. That’s why healthy kids recipes like avocado boats are a great meal idea for kids.  Our friends at Super Healthy Kids share the recipe:

Good morning! This morning we visit another healthy food that begins with the letter A: Avocado’s!  Avocado’s are a great addition to a healthy diet. They provide heart healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants, and essential nutrients.  I have only begun to love avocado’s in the last few years, and now I can’t get enough of them.  My kids love avocado’s in bean dips and salads.  I love them straight out of the peel.

Today’s food idea is supposed to look like a boat.  The Avocado skin was perfect for this.

Avocado Boats!

We took:

  • One whole avocado
  • 1 TBL salsa
  • 1 tsp. light sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice

Sliced avocado length wise.  Scooped out flesh. Put all ingredients into a food processor and whipped it up. Returned flesh to scooped out avocado.

I printed the pirate flag image from here.

Our other favorite avocado snack is the Avocado cones.
