Dippy Pea Guacamole

Dippy Pea Guacamole

Chunks of avocado can be very slippery to hold onto, so to make it easier try mashing them up with some peas – perfect for dipping veggie sticks in.

  • 30 g/1 oz frozen petits pois
  • ½ small avocado, stoned
  • 1 teaspoon lime or lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons baby’s usual milk
  • A few coriander leaves, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 soft wholemeal tortilla cut into fingers, to serve
  • Steamed vegetable sticks, to serve



  1. Steam or boil the petits pois in a small saucepan over a medium heat for 3–4 minutes until tender. Drain, if necessary, + tip into a bowl.
  2. Scoop out the avocado flesh into the bowl + pour in the citrus juice + milk. Using the back of a fork, mash together until almost smooth. Alternatively, purée using a hand blender. To make the purée smoother, pass it through a sieve after blending.
  3. Stir in the coriander (if using). Serve with the tortilla + vegetable sticks.
