Back to School with Driscoll Berries - Breakfast Pizza Recipe and more

 With the start of school here in the southeast, we are already in the swing of eating a good breakfast. I know that it makes a great difference when you eat breakfast or not. In the morning we are a little grumpy especially, when we are getting used to the school schedule again. So finding a way to make breakfast fun with different takes on other foods like pizza is a great way to get my kids to eat their breakfast.

Berry Breakfast Pizza

Pizza for breakfast? Your kids will love it! Katie Workman, author of The Mom 100 Cookbook, developed this recipe using English muffins as your crust and cream cheese as the base. Thinly sliced strawberries can then be added as the "pepperoni" and blueberries, the "olives". Top with shredded coconut as your "mozzarella" and you're set. 

And some Orange Juice with Banana, my kids love it. If I can find a way to sneak in more fruits and veggies, I will -lol.

  • 4 whole wheat English muffins, split
  • 2 cups Driscoll's Raspberries
  • 6 tablespoons softened regular or reduced fat cream cheese
  • 2 cups Driscoll's Strawberries, hulled and cut crosswise into circles
  • 2 cups Driscoll's Blueberries
  • 1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut (optional)
  1. Using the toaster or a preheated oven, toast the four English muffin halves until crunchy.
  2. Meanwhile, mash the raspberries with a fork in a small bowl. Bring cream cheese to room temperature. Add cream cheese to the bowl of raspberries and mix until spread becomes consistent.
  3. Evenly spread the raspberry cream cheese over the four halves. Distribute the strawberries and blueberries over the spread, and sprinkle on the coconut if desired.
 and for another great drink in the morning try a Raspberry OAT Smoothie

 Raspberry OAT Smoothie

• 1 cup Driscoll's raspberries
• 1 container fat-free vanilla yogurt
• 3/4 cup Raspberry flavored
  Sneaky Pete's Oat Beverage*
• 1/4 tbsp. vanilla extract

Mouse and Cheese Bento Box
love this idea

  • 1 Red licorice whip
  • 2 Driscoll's Strawberries, hulled
  • 4 Almond slices
  • 6 Mini chocolate chips (4 chocolate and 2 white chocolate preferred)
  • 2 Slices sandwich bread
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 cup mixed Driscoll's Berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
  • 1/2 cup mini carrots
  1. Have a shallow bento box and two cupcake papers on hand.
    Cut two 4-inch licorice lengths and insert one into each strawberry at the hole created when berry was hulled. Insert one white chocolate chip (tip first) at tip of each strawberry to create mouse's nose. Insert two chocolate chips a half-inch up from the nose to form eyes. Insert an almond slice above each eye to form ears. Place strawberry mice in cupcake papers and put into bento box.

    Stack bread slices on top of each other and trim to shape that mimics cheese wedge. Unstack slices and use small, round cookie cutters (or extra-large straws) to cut holes into one of the slices. Spread the uncut slice of bread with peanut butter, top with the holed slice of bread, and fill holes with berries of varying sizes to match sizes of holes.

    Place sandwich in bento box and fill any surrounding gaps with carrots and berries.

  1. That smoothie looks really good

  2. I don't like cream cheese, but I do like Nutella! I'd turn it into something like a Sleepy Hollow Nutella Waffle! ;)

  3. I love the Pizza idea...

  4. Oh that smoothie looks great! Not a huge fan of cream cheese so might have to skip that and how cute are the mouse and cheese. Something tells me if I tried to make that it wouldn't turn out looking that great :)
