Choc Avocado Milkshake Gummy Bears

Choc Avocado Milkshake Gummy Bears
This one is a double recipe which makes both a milkshake and these healthy gummy bears! These make great healthy treats or rewards for potty training.

You can get creative with the recipe by using other milkshake recipes as well. Just keep in mind that certain fruits can prevent the gelatin from setting - avoid using pineapple, kiwi, mango, gingerroot, papaya, figs, or guava.


  • 1/4 large avocado (or 1/2 a small one)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup greek yoghurt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp gelatin powder


Add all ingredients except gelatin into a blender and blend until smooth.

Use a sieve to strain 1/2 cup of liquid into a pot.

Serve the rest to your toddler as a delicious milkshake!

Add gelatin to pot and stir to combine.

Heat on low heat until liquid is warm and gelatin is dissolved and smooth. Do not boil.

Place silicone candy/chocolate mould onto a plate and fill cavities with the mixture.

Place in fridge and leave for about an hour, or until firm.


  • Most of the nutrients in an avocado are concentrated in the dark green flesh closest to the peel. By scooping the flesh out of an avocado, most of this highly nutritious flesh is left behind. The best way to ensure you aren't losing the best part of the avocado is to gently peel the skin off rather than scoop it out. Cut your avocado in half lengthways so they are held together by the pit, then gently twist to separate the two halves. Cut each half again so you have quarters, then gently peel the skin back from the flesh like you would a banana.
  • Bananas are a fantastic ingredient in toddler cooking, as they are a healthy way of sweetening any recipe without adding refined sugar. Mashed banana can also be used in place of butter or oil to keep cakes and muffins moist.
  • You will often see yoghurts advertised as being "probiotic" which means they contain live bacterial organisms which have a beneficial effect on the balance of good bacteria in our digestive systems. Not all yoghurts are probiotic, check the label before buying to ensure that it contains live and active cultures.
