Avocado Carbonara Recipe for Toddler

2+ year toddler recipe

  • A good way to introduce avocados

  • Yummy and easy to make

  • Hearty and nutritious

I love the nutty and creamy taste of avocadoes. Thailand is only now getting into an avocado trend and you can find them a lot easier than before. There are also Thai-grown avocadoes from Chiangmai. I would love it if Jaycob will have a taste-bud of avocadoes so I prepared this dish to for him to try. It’s very simple to make and the recipe is suitable for babies. I am substituting bacon with fresh pork to avoid using processed meat with lots of sodium.

Step-by-step Guide:

Scooping avocado into a blender to make avocado carbonara sauce

1 – Making the Sauce- It reminds me of making pesto sauce. It’s very easy. Cut one large avocado in half and add both halves into the blender. Add 1 large clove of garlic, 100ml of fresh milk, and a pinch of sea salt. Add milk as needed, the consistency should resemble mayonaise.

2 – Lemon Juice – Squeeze some lemon juice, minding the seeds, into the blender. Not only will this give it a fresh zesty taste, the vitamin C will prevent it from oxidizing and turning brown.

2 – Cook Spaghetti – Add one serving (about 8oz.) of spaghetti to boiling water and cook for about 10-12 minutes, or until it’s soft.

3 – Cook the bacon – Because bacon is processed and contains high amounts of sodium, I’m going for fresh pork sir loin with fat. Slice the pork into thin strips and fry them until done.
