A fun fruity and healthy rainbow toast spread with cream cheese, drizzled with honey and then topped with fruits in all the colors of the rainbow!
My kids were feeling left out of the toast craze so I made them a super fun, super colorful rainbow toast!
See, we don’t usually keep avocados around. My husband is allergic and neither kid has ever really taken to them. (I will keep trying, don’t worry you avocado lovers who are recoiling in horror.) So the avocado-type toast options weren’t really working for us.
And of course they like toast. Usually with their cheesy eggs every Saturday morning. And sometimes with peanut butter for an afternoon snack. Anything with peanut butter.
But I wanted to give them a little something more in the way of toasty fun.
So I went with ALL the fruits!
They were so excited when they saw this rainbow toast. M was like, “WOW Mommy!” Immediately followed by, “Can I have the whole thing?” She’s like her mama, doesn’t much care for sharing food 😉
This fun breakfast or snack is perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, too, in a festive way. (And if you want some more food fun, check out these healthy green recipes for St. Patrick’s Day.)
The whole wheat bread is toasted, spread with cream cheese and drizzled with honey. Then I used strawberries, mandarin oranges, banana, green grapes, blueberries and pomegranate seeds for the fruits.
You could definitely adjust and sub some of these out — kiwi for the green grapes, red grapes for the pomegranate, blackberries for the blueberries, even pineapple for the banana.
We don’t always have all the colors of fruit, but we’re usually pretty close. These kids, man, they are little fruit monsters. #atleastitshealthy
And they are happy to be in on the toast trend fun.
Eat the rainbow (the real food kind) – and enjoy!
