Get in some healthy nutrients from avocados, coloured peppers and a variety of fresh vegetables by playing with your food! Work with your kids to turn veggies into a crocodile, that you can then munch on. For big kids: have them measure out the ingredients. For little kids: let them mix the ingredients for the guac.
1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained 3 tablespoons mayonnaise 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt 2 large ripe avocados Decoration options: red and yellow pepper pieces, sliced miniature cucumbers, radishes and ripe olives Assorted fresh vegetables
For dip, place first four ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Cut avocados lengthwise in half around the seed; remove seeds. Reserving skins, carefully scoop out avocado and add to bean mixture; process until blended.
For crocodile heads, fill avocado skins with dip. If desired, add pepper pieces for teeth, radish and olive slices for eyes, and olives for noses. Serve with vegetables.
