Have you tried ricotta toast yet? Its such a great change up to your usual breakfast line up! I know I get tried of the smoothies, oatmeal, and eggs. (And some days I even get tired of avocado toasts!)
Ricotta toast is so easy to make and so versatile! I like to jazz up the ricotta a little bit to give it a nice boost of flavor. Very simple flavor but really makes a difference. Just add some ground cinnamon, sugar and vanilla extract to the ricotta cheese. Once you have the ricotta flavored up, you just need to toast the bread you are using and get your toppings ready.
This is actually very fun to play around with. Try different combinations of fruits, nuts, syrups and spreads!
It can be a really great after school snacks for kids or after work pick up for the adults! My son Jaiden couldn’t keep his hands off! He especially loved adding (and eating) the chocolate chips to the toast! And its a fun way to get him to eat his fruits!
As you can tell these are very summery fruit toppings. I choose the toppings according to what is in season right now, Blackberries, peaches, mango are actually in season right now! But I know this can work great with jams and different spreads or canned fruits as well! So you can play around with it for any season of the year. Its super versatile!
Not only can you play around with the fruit toppings but also the garnishes! I added chopped nuts and honey/nutella drizzles! Plus some chocolate chips, well as many as I could add to the toasts before Jaiden asked to “help” (it was more like “helped” himself to as many chocolate chips he could get his little hands on!)
