It’s an Avocado Party! {yes, thats a thing!}

This post was sponsored by Fresh Avocados – Love One Today® as part of an In-Home Party Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. 

This weekend, I had some friends + neighbors over for a Avocado Party!

And yes – it was as awesome as it sounds. Because who doesn’t love some delicious avocados – ESPECIALLY as a way to celebrate the end of summer.

My friends at Hass Avocados hooked me up with some sweet swag for my guests, along with some awesome recipes I was able to recreate for everyone {and their littles} to enjoy!

Keep Calm, its Good Fat! 

I have always been a lover of fresh avocados! And now as a mom, I love even more the the avocado’s smooth, creamy consistency and mild taste – makes it one of the first fresh fruits a child can enjoy. Both of my boys have been enjoying avocados since the beginning – they have always been a huge hit from our Baby Led Weaning days! Not to mention Avocados contribute nearly 20 nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and phytonutrients, that are important to infant/toddler nutrition.

I was excited to invite my friends over and showcase the awesomeness of the avocado. Wholesome, fresh foods are less likely to contain added sugars, salt and other processed ingredients – and I know thats important to my fellow moms with little ones!

First up on the menu is a fun drink the adults and the littles got to enjoy! Agua Fresca de Aduacate – which is a refreshing juice made of honeydew melon, avocado, water, a little lime and salt!

It was only appropriate to start the party off with an avocado mocktail cheers!

The littles saw us enjoying the drink and had to get it on it themselves too!

Next up on the menu was this delicious vegan avocado ceviche! I paired it with some homemade chips (which I toasted from naan bread) and it was a refreshing and light starter!

I think just adding avocado to anything makes it light and summery, but it packs the flavor too! These chipotle avocado stuffed cherry tomatoes were INSANE! I combined an avocado with greek yogurt, added in a little chipotle spice and a hit of lime, stuffed into cherry tomatoes and they were SO GOOD. Definitely a great snack to have on hand!

One of the stars of the show were these chicken and turkey bacon avocado wraps! I put everything into separate bowls and the littles had a blast helping me make the wraps, it was nice to include them in the preparation process and it was also great to have them see what was going into the dish!

These were so good too. I want to make them again ASAP. They were a great way to change up the old PB+J toddler lunch and get some new flavors out for the littles to enjoy!

Aside from the avocado goodness, the littles had a blast playing dress up and enjoying all.the.bubbles.

The party was off the hook.

After enjoying all the avocado eats, it was time for the mamas to have a glass of wine and relax for a bit, Labor Day weekend calls for a little relaxing, right?

All in all we had a great time and all the avocado dishes were delicious! I can’t wait to create more tasty delicious eats with avocados soon!

What’s your favorite way to eat avocados?
