Healthy Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Pizzas
Healthy Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Pizzas want to know: Can you handle the cuteness?
I would apologize for these little healthy peanut butter pizza snacks—I got a tiiiiiiny bit carried away with the fruit art—but they are too addictive for regrets. You are looking at Healthy Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Pizzas #4, #7-10, #13, and #15. I lost all self control during the photoshoot and all of the missing numbers disappeared into my mouth. I also might have temporarily jammed my camera button with peanut butter. Worth it.
I’m not usually one for ultra cute food (minus these luscious Mini French Silk Cookie Pies, which are so divine, I’d probably eat them off my kitchen floor), but I had so much fun arranging pretty shapes with the fruit slices between bites, I couldn’t help but show off my mad stained-glass fruit skillz.
I’m sorry I just spelled skillz with a “z.” Twice.
Healthy Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Pizzas were inspired by one of my favorite childhood snacks, rice cakes spread with peanut butter. The rice cakes form the fruit pizza “crust” and can be big or little, plain or flavored. For today’s Healthy Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Pizzas, I used large, plain rice cakes and small apple cinnamon ones. Both are lovely to see and yummy to eat.
The “sauce” is a creamy blend of natural peanut butter, Greek yogurt, and honey. Friends, this PB-yogurt sauce is boss. It’s a luscious, filling, and just the right amount of sweet. It’s also completely irresistible. We’re talking lick leftovers out of the Tupperware corners irresistible. As soon as I finished the first batch, I immediately made a second and have been stirring it into my oatmeal at breakfast or spreading it over brownies after dinner (or brownies at breakfast—the small edge pieces don’t count!)
Once the rice cakes are spread, the fun and the cute commence. Use any fresh fruit you (or your kids) love, plus fun extras such as granola or chocolate chips, to build the prettiest of snacks.
Apple, blueberry, and granola blossom.
Strawberry and banana shine.
Berries, banana, and granola bring a smile. Also, this granola “do” eerily resembles my hair on a humid day.Healthy Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Pizzas have become one of my favorite after-work or-workout snacks, and I think they’d be perfect for after-school snacks too. No matter when you munch them, these cuties are an addictive treat you can feel good about devouring. Plus, they just make me smile.
Art should always be this fun. And this edible.
