This recipe would make for a great school lunch, or even one for parents to take to work with them! It is best to prepare this the night before, to reserve time during busy mornings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 15oz. can of tropical fruit in 100% juice
  • 4 whole grain pita pockets
  • 4 cups fresh spinach, torn
  • 1/4 c fresh cilantro (optional)

         Spread:

  • 3 tbsp. reserved fruit juice from canned fruit salad
  • 1/2 c natural peanut butter crunchy
  • 3 tbsp. fat free cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce

 

Directions:

1. In a colander or strainer over a bowl, drain fruit salad and reserve 3 tbsp. fruit juice

2. In a small bowl, whisk together fruit juice, cream cheese, peanut butter, and soy sauce

3. Put drained fruit, spinach, and cilantro (if desired) in bowl, mix gently

4. Add sauce and toss

5. Slice a small portion of the pita off at the top, and tuck into the bottom of the pita
