Kinder Kitchen Kid's Healthy Recipe - Kid Friendly Guacamole

It's sunshine and rain showers here in North London. It was also very cold here this morning and a new season is definitely upon us. After months of sunshine I thought I was going to miss the warm days and hazy evenings but actually I am ready to embrace autumn. Autumn is harvest time and along with produce spilling over from the summer months, there is an abundance of wonderfully fresh autumnal foods available to buy.

I brought peaches, plums, radishes, beetroot, sweetcorn, apples, Mediterranean grapes, aubergines, tomatoes, melons, peppers and avocados to name a few. My kitchen is full of colour from all the wonderful fruit and vegetables.

In my afterschool school class today we tasted a selection of the fruit that I bought today - including pomegranate seeds and honeydew melon. The kids also made my kids friendly guacamole. A few of the children had never tasted an avocado before and were a little hesitant but all but one tried it and liked it.

There are lots of different processes to making the guacamole such as squeezing the lime, chopping up the tomatoes into small cubes and mashing the avocado flesh with a fork. Here's the recipe for you to try at home:


2 very ripe avocados
1 large tomato
Juice of 1 lime
3 tbsp. olive oil
A little salt and pepper
1 tbsp. chopped coriander


1. On a board, chop the tomatoes up as small as possible
2. Cut the avocados in half, take out the stone and remove the flesh with a tablespoon. Place the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash them up with a fork
3. Now add the tomatoes, lime juice, olive oil, coriander, salt & pepper and mix well
4. Serve the guacamole with pitta bread, sliced carrots, peppers or for a treat some tortilla chips
