Graham Cracker Fruit Pizzas
It’s August and I am continuing my series on after school snacks. This one is so simple and easy to customize to whatever you have on hand.
Graham Cracker Fruit Pizzas are so simple to make. They are a no-bake sweet treat for after school.
This is more of a method than a recipe. You need 3 parts, graham crackers, a spread, and fruit.
You can use any kind you prefer. Cinnamon graham crackers would be delicious and chocolate graham crackers would be really good too!
The easiest spread is Nutella. I also like to use the tubs of cream cheese. They are softer than the block of cream cheese. Whipped cream cheese works well. But, my favorite is strawberry cream cheese. It has a little sugar and flavor in it that reminds me of fruit pizzas of my youth.
Any fruit can work here. The fruit is just a topping. I like strawberries or blueberries. I had mandarin oranges when I shot the photos so they went on. Apples, bananas, or grapes all work well too. The key with the fruit is to have it sliced into thin pieces. I cut the mandarin oranges in half and I would cut the grapes too. Thin slices of things like apples or bananas work best.
- 4 Graham Crackers
- 4 Tablespoons spread of choice. (Nutella, cream cheese, or strawberry cream cheese are my favorites.
- Fruit of choice. (sliced strawberries, apples, oranges, blueberries, and bananas all work great.)
- Spread 1 Tablespoon of your spread of choice on the graham cracker.
- Top with sliced fruit of choice.
- Serve immediately.
This recipe is as easy as it gets, and can totally be customized. If you need it to be dairy free, use chocolate peanut butter instead of Nutella or cream cheese.
You can use just about any fruit you prefer. You could even used canned fruit, or a fruit cocktail cup. Just be sure to drain it well first.
