    Wow, I never would have thouht to use avacado in this way. I have to admit my sceptisism, is this your pregnancy tastbuds talking?! You pictures sure make it look awesome. I am just curious enough to try it. Maybe. ;)

    @Theresa, Yes, pregnancy taste buds. I don’t have any of those strange cravings you hear about but I do have an intense need for carbs. That’s the most abnormal part for me – I’ve never been a big carb eater. Now, though, I need them. Other than that I still love my fresh food. Just in bizarre quantities.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    this looks tasty but what could I use in place of the cottage cheese, if abstaining from dairy?

    My sister in law and I were pregnant at the same time and due within 15 days of each other. We both could not get enough grapefruit! We both thought it was strange to have the exact same craving that neither of us had heard of before. We both had boys:)

    @Kristin, I’m having a little boy, too. Gosh, that grapefruit tastes good. :) I love it. Can’t get enough. So bizarre that 3 different women, all carrying boys, want lots of grapefruit.

    I had an intense craving for lemons during my first pregnancy, which turned out to be a girl! Cottage cheese took on a whole new light too, it tasted like heaven. Lucky I made the most of that craving when I could, cause since having kids I’ve discovered I need to eat mostly dairy-free (and gf). Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy!

    I enjoy incorporating avocado in almost everything. This looks so good! I will be trying this with almonds instead of the cereal, like you suggested. Thanks for giving me a great idea.

    I wondered if the avocado was going to end up in these. LOL What a beautiful idea!! I am going to make these for the kids. They will totally think they are getting the biggest treat and will not even realize all of the yummy health benefits! Great idea. Don’t you love what pregnancy does to the creative process? hehee!!

    @Kim (Cook It Allergy Free), What would you use to make this dairy-free? I generally enjoy dairy – and this baby is craving it. It’s got to be the calcium because I actually drink milk. Ugh! I would have never considered it before.

    @Amy, I think that to make it dairy free I would puree some soaked cashews with coconut cream and maybe half of a banana and then blend with the berries. Just a thought! :)

    Sounds great. My last pregnancy I craved vinegar and cream, unfortunately I couldn’t get lactose free cream then, so just had some now and then.i don’t think it was calcium I wanted, more the fat content… Isn’t it funny how pregnancy cravings work?

    Hi Amy,
    I am so trying to wrap my mind around the avocado in this – I am not opposed it just seems a bit odd – LOL! Mixing the cottage cheese with the yogurt – brilliant! I can’t wait to try this!

    @Christy, Avocado is such a great source of healthy fat. It’s great in green salads and fruit salad. One of my favs.

    Gorgeous Amy! My friend’s Mom used to make something similar when we were little and I LOVED them. Raspberries are a fave of mine! Can’t wait to see how baby’s arrival changes your eating :) xo

    Hi Amy. This recipe looks great … although I will try to make it with raw dairy or dairy free. I wonder how coconut cream would work ?? I also wanted to share that I just read a Blaylock report on migranes and peanut butter was one of the foods he said had glutamate in it and glutamates can trigger migranes so be careful with your pb cravings ;)

    Amy Reply:

    @Cara, I’ve had no migraines at all and have been loving peanut butter. :) Thanks for the info, though.

    You’ll have to try out the coconut cream…I haven’t tried it yet.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    Wow, I have never heard of or thought of using avocado for a sweet(ish) application! I’m thoroughly intrigued to give this a try sometime, as I am going to be starting a cleanse soon and am looking for healthy ways to indulge the occasional sweet craving.

    I had a laugh at your list of foods you eat… I’m pregnant and I am currently in the Black grape phase. Can’t get enough of them! Oh and original corn chips, toast and crackers. Seems the carbs thing is needed when pregnant!

    Amy Reply:

    @Melissa Darr, I was craving black grapes last night at 4:00 am…couldn’t sleep. Had to settle for warm milk. I didn’t drink milk before I got pregnant but this baby loves it.

    Yes, carbs are needed when pregnant. I eat so much more than I ever did before.

    Congrats on your pregnancy! It’s fun to hear where you are on your journey.

    Hugs,
    Amy
