Today’s blog post comes from some experimenting I did last week. I have a little guy that is a VERY picky eater. That being said, I do my best to stay on the WHOLE food side of things.
Yes, there are some places where I just can’t get around buying processed foods (i.e. teething biscuits) and in those cases, I purchase the “best” option. The “best” option is not necessarily something that Mr. C will always eat so I have had to get creative. It’s this creativity that brought me to this week’s recipe blog…
Yogurt is a morning staple for my little man, and I had just run out! I had my list set to head the grocery store in the afternoon, but still needed to whip up something fast for breakfast and use what I already had in the kitchen. Think fast…
I have an amazing recipe for a “chocolate pudding” where the base is avocado – sounds weird but really, really tasty. The avocado gives a great consistency with undetectable flavor. That’s when the light bulb went off…
I quickly tossed an avocado into the Nutribullet, added in the strawberries and almond milk and Voila!
The creamy, delicious, smooth, and of course *healthy* “yogurt” was exactly what we needed. It’s excellent for breakfast or a snack + it passed Mr C’s test (and when that happens, you know its good!) Did I mention that its vegetarian, vegan, dairy –free + gluten free? Truly a treat for ALL!
What recipes have you “discovered” by accident? What dish can you whip up when feeling the pressure? Let us know in the comments below.

“Everything Free Yogurt” (serves 1 – 2 to Eat Right Away)
½ ripe Avocado, pit and skin removed
1 C Frozen Strawberries (or fruit of your choice)
1/2 – 1 C of Almond Milk
Toss all ingredients into blender. Blend + enjoy!
Option: Swap whole milk for the almond milk if you are looking for an even creamier texture. It won’t be dairy free but it will still be delicious!
