1 large ripe avocado
1/2 cup peeled and seeded cucumber
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
Makes about 3/4 cup guacamole


Cut the avocado in half lengthwise around the pit and twist the halves to separate. Remove and discard the pit.

Using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the avocado halves into a food processor or blender, discarding the skins.

Using the large holes of a box grater-shredder, shred the cucumber, then add it to the food processor or blender along with the cumin.

Process to a smooth puree, or, depending on baby's age and chewing ability, you can leave the puree a little coarser. If necessary, add enough water, breast milk or formula to thin the puree to a consistency your baby can handle.

Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to one day. (Some discoloration may occur during storage.)
