This isn't really a recipe post. I just wanted to show how sometimes when you are trying to get food into a toddler, you have to think a little bit outside of the box.
Michaela regularly eats yogurt for a snack, so I decided to punch it up a little and make this Banana Avocado Mousse for her snack yesterday. I was too lazy to actually blend it, so it didn't look quite as appetizing as I was expecting. After taking one look at it, I knew I would have to be creative in getting her to eat it. Luckily, I had just juiced an orange for her to drink, so I scooped a little bit into a used orange cup and served it to her with a spoon.
It worked! After staring at it for a few minutes in interest, she finally took a bite.
"Num num owange mama!"
"No baby, it's in an orange cup, but it's banana and avocado."
*Looking at me in confusion*
"Num num banana mama! Num num owange!"
