Kid Friendly Recipe: Avocado-Banana Cream Pie + Mini Chef Video Contest

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know avocados are a fruit that is jam packed with nutrients essential for a child’s development? They provide potassium, fiber, folate, and Vitamins C, E, and B-complex. I never realized how versatile avocados could be until this year. I always equated them with guacamole! But they are really great for kids. My daughter and I enjoy them mixed with bananas. Yum! She’s still too little to really cook with me, but I often have her in the kitchen to watch. Sometimes she is very interested and other times she’d rather play with measuring spoons.

Does your little one (ages 5 to 15) like to help in the kitchen? If so, then the Mini Chef Video Contest is for you! Avocados from Mexico is hosting a video contest November 14th through December 4th. On December 6th 10 finalists will go up for public voting.

To enter, create a 1 to 3 minute long video of your child creating an avocado dish. They must share why they love avocados and the catchy jingle from the website. Judges will select the 10 finalists based on personality of the Mini Chef and the use of avocado.

The grand prize winner will receive $1000, an HD camcorder, a Nintendo 3D, 2 games and a personalized Mini Chef jacket. 9 runner ups will receive an HD camcorder a Nintendo 3D, 2 games and a personalized Mini Chef jacket. 

My daughter isn’t old enough to enter the contest, but I have a kid friendly recipe to share with you. It’s delicious and easy to make!
