Great for back-to-school time or summer rush, these six fresh strawberry toast recipes make perfect afternoon delights. These will surely please even your pickiest eater. Not only are these toasts great for little ones, but they’re pretty darn awesome for grown-ups too. Strawberries are naturally sweet but low in sugar, which is a win-win for everyone. Strawberries are easy to prepare, available year-round, and deliver exceptional nutrition and health benefits. The best part is that if you can work a toaster you can make these satisfying snacks for back-to-school or better yet, let your children make them themselves. Watch this fun video to see all the creative ways you can improve your toast game. Avocado + Strawberries + Queso Fresco + Olive Oil This combo is my favorite – I can seriously eat avocado and strawberries with every meal. This toast is topped with slices of creamy avocados, sweet strawberries, salty crumbled queso fresco, and drizzled with olive oil. Berries + Basil/Mint + Cream Cheese Cream cheese, strawberry slices, and blackberries topped with basil or mint leaves is a lovely combo. Strawberries + Goat Cheese + Pomegranate + Balsamic This one is my daughter’s favorite. She loves exotic flavors and the way the tangy, slightly salty goat cheese works with the balsamic-coated strawberries and pomegranate seeds on the crunchy, toasted bread is a thing of beauty. Cottage Cheese + Strawberries + Walnuts + Honey If you are not a fan of cottage cheese substitute with ricotta cheese. It’s a simple and satisfying combo and deliciously sweet with a drizzle of honey. Mango + Strawberries + Mozzarella + Tajin I can’t have mango without a sprinkle of Tajin. This is my strawberry toast of choice when I’m feeling homesick. Strawberries + Almond Butter + Sesame Seeds This one is my son’s favorite — a protein packed afterschool snack perfect before he heads to football practice. The almond butter will fill you up and keep you satisfied, loaded with vitamin C packed strawberry slices, and the sesame seeds are high in calcium.
