Festive Pitas

These trees may be miniature but their nutrient content isn’t! Avocado is an excellent source of healthy fat and this fruit (…Yes it’s a fruit!) is an excellent source of fiber; almost 7 grams per half.  This recipe is the perfect opportunity to get your kids in the kitchen this holiday season.


Whole grain pita


Yellow bell pepper, diced

Red bell pepper, diced




  1. Cut pita into triangles.
  2. Spread guacamole onto triangle pitas.
  3. Add diced yellow pepper to the top of the tree as the star.
  4. Place diced red pepper along the tree as garland.
  5. Slice a small hole in the bottom of the pita and add a pretzel, as the tree trunk.
