{What Will Ate} Pear + Avocado Pops

My sweet little eater has entered a bit of a picky phase. I have learned that everyday in the world of baby/toddler eating is different and some are more frustrating than others. On top of that, Will also has some teeth coming in in a few spots, making mealtimes even more of a challenge. BUT HE IS SO CUTE. Right now, he is especially loving anything soft and anything that's really cold.

Popsicles and smoothies have been a favorite around here lately! Smoothies are a great way to sneak in extra veggies and protein and popsicles are all around great for a teething toddler. The flavor combos are endless. 

Creamy avocado and sweet pear make a perfect pop! Avocado is full of good fats and nutrients and pear adds just the right amount of sweetness. This is a treat you can feel good about giving your little ones. 

Pear + Avocado Pops

1 large organic avocado
1 organic d'anjou pear

Cut avocado in half, remove the pit and cut into large chunks, set aside.  

Cut pear into large chunks, leaving the skin on. Steam for 15 minutes, or until fork tender. 

Place steamed pear and raw avocado in a blender or food processor (I did this all in my Beaba Babycook) and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.
