We made ours with ricotta and coconut butter but you can easily substitute cream cheese, yogurt or whipped cream.

Or just skip the creamy spread altogether and make the clouds with banana slices or mini marshmallows.

Seriously, there’s no wrong way to make a fun and fruity breakfast rainbow 🙂

Did someone eat all of your blueberries?

No worries, here are a bunch of fruit substitutions for the different colors of the rainbow:

  • Red: strawberries, raspberries, cherries, pomegranate seeds
  • Orange: clementine, oranges, peaches, nectarines, apricots
  • Yellow: pineapple, bananas, mango
  • Green: kiwi, honeydew, pears
  • Blue: blueberries, blackberries, grapes

Fresh fruit arranged in the shape of a rainbow on a toasted waffle.

Adding a fruit rainbow to your usual ho-hum frozen waffle really takes it up a notch flavorwise – plus they are so fun to make!
