03. Blueberry Almond Butter-Balls


  • ⅔ cup finely chopped raw almonds
  • ⅓ cup dried blueberries
  • 1 ¼ cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • Optional but recommended: ¼ teaspoon salt


  • In a large bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until completely combined.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop or spoon to scoop out the mixture into individual portions.
  • Use your hands to roll it into balls and place on a rimmed baking sheet or small baking pan.
  • Tip: Keep your hands damp with water so that the mixture doesn’t stick to your fingers and it’s easy to roll into balls.
  • Place balls in the refrigerator to set for about 1 hour. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week (but they probably won’t last that long)!

05. Strawberry Yogurt Bark


– Yogurt (we used honey Greek Yogurt)

– *Dried strawberries


Step 1. Line a flat pan with sides with parchment paper and spread evenly with yogurt, make sure it’s not too thin so that it breaks easily. I would say about 3/8 of an inch thick is good.

Step 2. Sprinkle with your mix-in (fruit, nuts, etc)

Step 3. Freeze for a few hours until completely frozen. Ours took about 4 hours for an 8″ square pan, but of course it will depend on the size of your pan. Remove the frozen yogurt from the pan and peel off the parchment paper. Break into pieces.

06. Frozen Yogurt Pops


  • 1 cup yogurt, plain
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup mixed berries, frozen
  • 1/8 cup honey


Toss all ingredients into a high-powered blender and puree.

Divide evenly between paper cups. 

Cover with aluminum foil and pierce foil in the center with popsicle sticks to hold sticks in place.

Freeze 4-5 hours or until solid.

07. Animal Face Toast

  • 1 wheat bread
  • nutella
  • cream cheese
  • peanut butter
  • banana
  • strawberries
  • blueberries


  • Toast bread.
  • Spread either nutella, cream cheese or peanut butter over toast.
  • Cut banana and strawberries into appropriate shapes to mimic the animal faces in the photos. Add some blueberries for eyes and serve these animal faces toast slices up to the kids!

08. Fruit Rockets


  • 5 strawberries
  • 10 large green grapes
  • 15 blueberries


  • Wash and dry the fruit, then hull the strawberries by chopping the tops off them.
  • Thread the blueberries and grapes onto the skewers, alternating between them.
  • Top each skewer with a strawberry to make a point at the top of the rocket, then serve. 

09. Pancake Skewers


Serves 4

Use the fruit of your choice (we used strawberries and bananas)

1 cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons baking powder

Pinch of salt

1 egg

1¼ cup milk

1 tablespoon of butter, melted

Powdered sugar, to taste

Maple Syrup, to taste


In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients.

Beat together the egg, milk and butter in a separate bowl, then combine with the dry ingredients.

Gently whisk the mixture just enough to moisten the flour to be sure not to over mix. Transfer the batter into a larger squeeze bottle.

On a non-stick pan, squeeze a quarter-sized amount of the batter. Flip when bubbles rise and the bottom has browned.

When the pancakes are done, start assembly from bottom to top with a pancake, strawberry, banana. Repeat twice finishing with a pancake on the top and a skewer down the center. Feel free to use any fruit combinations to your liking.

Finish with powdered sugar and maple syrup.

10. Fruit Pizza Crackers


  • Wasa Crisbreads
  • 1/2 cup cream Cheese
  • 3 Tbs Honey
  • Strawberries, Blueberries, Kiwi, and Raspberries


Mix the honey and cream cheese.

Spread an even amount onto each crispbread.

Chop the fruit into small pieces and top the crispbreads.

Serve immediately.
