Avocado Bean Dip

Raven Higheagle


June is National Dairy Month!
Milk is the single greatest source of three of the four nutrients the Dietary Guidelines identified as lacking in the American diet – calcium, vitamin D and potassium. Most kids don't get enough milk.
But, this grandma is crafty. Sneaky. I fit good food into our snacks. For instance, this dip is filled with greek yogurt, cottage cheese and avocado. Yes, you eat it with chips or pretzel crisps, but hey, there’s only so much I can control. If my grandkids are going to snack, why not balance it out. Compromise.
