Avocado Banana Rice Mash

Avocado Banana Rice Mash

The mild flavours and creamy textures of avocado and banana team up in this simple mash that is sweetened with a little applesauce and fortified with cooked rice. Keep in mind that the mash does discolour as the avocado and bananas oxidize but it won’t affect the flavour or nutritional value.

What You’ll Need:

Ingredients

1 cup cooked white or brown rice 250 mL
1/2 *avocado, mashed

1/2

1/2 *banana, mashed 1/2
3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce 45 mL

Directions

Stir together rice, avocado, banana and applesauce until well combined.

Refrigerate leftovers for up to 2 days.

Makes 8 servings.

*Note: Avocado is a source of 20 different nutrients including fibre, folic acid and vitamin E, which are all essential for a healthy baby. Bananas provide vitamin B6, vitamin C, potassium and fibre which aid in baby’s healthy growth and development.

Per 1/4 cup (50 mL) serving: about 50 cal,  9 g carbs, 1 g fibre, 2 g fat, 1 g protein.
