This post brought to you by Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you or your kids an avocado fan? Well there is a great contest that just started that you may want to check out! Since 3 slices of this creamy green fruit (yup, it’s a fruit!) packs potassium, fiber, folate, vitamin C, E and those B-complex vitamins that support memory and brain function, it's a great fruit to introduce early!
Starting November 14th, Avocados from Mexico is hosting the Mini Chef Video Contestfor parents of children ages 5-15.
Just submit a 1-3 minute video of your child/children preparing an avocado dish and be sure to have them include why they love avocados and the catchy Avocados from Mexico jingle found on their website. Videos will be judged on the Mini Chef’s personality and the presence of avocado.
One grand prize winner gets $1,000 in cash plus an HD Camcorder (for future home videos!), a Nintendo 3D, 2 games and a personalized Mini Chef jacket.
Nine runners up win big too with an HD Camcorder, a Nintendo 3D and a personalized Mini Chef jacket. Tons of great prizes and tons of chances to win – what’s not to love?
Get your video in by December 4th and check back on December 6th to see if your video is one of 10 finalists. Public voting will take place on YouTube December 6-11. The video with the most Likes wins and will be posted on the website December 12th.
Since I have an eight month old, one of the recipes we have tried is as follows:Avocado Fruit Salad
3 or 4 ripe avocados
3 or 4 ripe bananas
3 or 4 Pears (steamed)
A couple of dollops Yogurt (for 8 months +)
Peel, de-seed and slice fruits as needed
Place in a blender or food processor and puree until desired texture is achieved
Add a couple of dollops of yogurt if desired
Easy and delicious for breakfast!
