Spring is here and the temperatures are rising – well, at least they are here in Southern California! Avocados seem to be plentiful in the store and I’ve been buying them like crazy! Nicholas’ new favorite snack is super easy and super healthy – a great combination. Avocados are loaded with calcium, lots of vitamins, nutrients, and the “good fat” we all need. And, you don’t even have to buy them organic!

This is an easy snack to have available when the neighborhood kids drop by or if you have to go to a potluck and just want to bring something a bit different.  I must confess, it’s not exactly an original recipe; many in the paleo diet community have shared this before, but I thought it fit well for being both gluten and casein free.

Guacamole and Plantain Chips (Nicholas Rating = 100 Thumbs Up!)

2 ripe avocados

1/2 lime

plantain chips (make your own or buy them at Whole Foods Market or Trader Joe’s)

Slice and mash the avocados in a small serving bowl. Squeeze juice of a half lime into avocado and mix well. Serve with plantain chips as a dip!
