Creamy Avocado Dip

I am hoping I am not the only mama out there who has a hard time getting their littles to eat their veggies. Generally my littles are awesome and rarely turn down a fruit or vegetable....well that is until avocados come into play. They definitely make some serious stink faces at these sweet fruits or are they veggies? Whatever they kids have some serious disdain for them. I am always trying to think of ways to sneak avocados into their diet. It may be in a smoothie, a brownie, or in their sandwiches. Whatever I can do. One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate. They are also high in vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, and glutathione, which are all great for your heart (source here). That being said, I definitely want to get my littles and my husband eating these gems.

This past week we had nachos for dinner. I had some avocados to use up, which I received last week from BB. We love to do our nachos with pico de gallo, homemade refried beans, and tortilla chips. This week I decided to add in a bit of creamy avocado dip. Guess what? It was a hit!..... somehow combining vanilla yogurt and avocados created a yummy dip that both my hubby and the red heads enjoyed. Who knew? So if you are looking for a new yummy dip, try this out. It is perfect for tacos, nachos, veggie sticks, chips, you name it! We have also used this as a spread on sandwiches. It is a healthy alternative to using mayo on a sandwich :)
