These colorful Rainbow Fruit Waffles are a quick breakfast that’s fun for kids and adults. All you need are frozen waffles, fresh fruit, and your favorite creamy spread. They’re the perfect start to St. Patrick’s Day or any spring morning!
How to Make Rainbow Fruit Waffles
Start by preparing the frozen waffles according to the directions on the box. Then let them cool for a few minutes.
Once cooled, spread each waffle with some ricotta, cream cheese, or Greek yogurt. Then, arrange the fruit into a rainbow, beginning with the strawberries.
To make the clouds, dollop a few teaspoons of your spread or some whipped cream at the base of the rainbow. Banana slices or mini marshmallows also make for tasty clouds.
Building the fresh fruit rainbow is my favorite part. Below are some ideas for different fruits that you can use to represent each color of the rainbow.
- Red: strawberries, raspberries, cherries, pomegranate seeds
- Orange: clementine, oranges, peaches, nectarines, apricots
- Yellow: pineapple, bananas, mango
- Green: kiwi, honeydew, pears
- Blue/Purple: blueberries, blackberries, grapes
We don’t usually have fruit for each of the colors on hand but no one seems to mind. Creating and eating these fruity waffles is just so much fun!
