Ingredients

Units Scale

Veggie Roll-Ups

  • Whole wheat tortillas or any other tortilla of choice
  • Whipped cream cheese
  • Onion powder
  • Fresh baby spinach, chopped
  • Carrots, shredded
  • Tomato, chopped
  • Cucumber, thinly sliced
  • Shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Granola Balls

  • 3/4 cup granola
  • 1/2 cup mini pretzels
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

Watermelon Pizza

  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 round slice of watermelon, about 1-inch thick
  • Fresh fruit of choice, sliced and/or chopped
  • Granola
  • Shredded coconut
  • Honey

Instructions

Veggie Roll-Ups

  1. Spread cream cheese evenly over the entire tortilla. Sprinkle lightly with onion powder and then layer on the veggies and cheese (in any order you like). There are no measurements! Simply eyeball it and add a little more or less of what you like. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Starting at one end, tightly roll up the tortilla and slice it into serving pieces.

Granola Balls

  1. In a food processor, pulse granola and pretzels into a medium crumb-like consistency. Add almond butter and cranberries; pulse a couple of times until combined. Refrigerate the mixture for 20 minutes and then roll into approximately 1-inch balls. Store refrigerated in a closed container. Makes about 12-14 balls.

Watermelon Pizza

  1. Combine together the cream cheese and Greek yogurt. Spread the mixture evenly over a slice of watermelon. Top the watermelon with fruit, granola, coconut, and light drizzle of honey. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Notes

  • All three recipes are super versatile: use your kids’ favorite veggies for the roll-ups, favorite dried fruit for the granola balls, and favorite fruit/toppings for the watermelon pizza. Each recipe takes approximately 15 minutes to make.
  • For the granola balls, I used all-natural, no stir, almond butter and found that different brands yielded different results. So depending on the type and brand, you may require anywhere from 1/2 cup – 3/4 cup almond butter.
