I had been trying to come up with an idea for a similar snack. Cream cheese was also out of the question due to dairy allergies. Hmmm.
Then one day after we had been to the green grocers and came home with an avocado, it dawned on me – we would have ants on a mossy log!
Kallista examined the texture of the skin.
I cut the avocado in half.
Tristan had a good look at the slippery pit.
I mashed up the flesh of the avocado and spread it on pieces of celery, adding raisin ants along the tops.
The kids seemed to like it and requested it again the next day.
Even the ‘big kid’ enjoyed it (and he says he doesn’t like avocado)!
This was definitely a FUN snack! For more fun snack ideas, try some of these:
