Peach Pinwheels Recipe for Back to School Snacking

Peach Pinwheels After School Snack

During back to school season it’s always fun to have a few quick and easy recipes on hand for healthy lunch or snack options.  I recently went on a mission to create a new snack idea using Del Monte Fruit Cups.  Through a little brainstorming, I came up with these pretty Peach Pinwheels that you see above.

To start the process, I first headed to Walmart to browse through everything available.  You can see my whole shopping trip in my Google+ story.  I decided to use Del Monte Diced Peaches in light syrup with Cinnamon & Brown Sugar.  (I’m  thinking the Diced Pears would also work in this recipe.)

I only needed two other ingredients to create my snack…….tortillas and honey nut cream cheese – nice and simple.

Making the pinwheels is just as easy as the ingredients are.  First drain the peaches.  I find it easiest to just slice a hole in the edge of the cup covering and shake out the juice.  Then just spread a layer of cream cheese on the tortilla (making sure you get all the way to the edges) before sprinkling the drained peaches evenly over the top.

Once you have it rolled up tightly, use a knife to cut the roll into slices about 1/3 inch thick.  To serve, just put the slices on a plate so you can see the pretty peaches inside before you bite in and taste them.

  1. That sounds really good. And really easy! I love honey nut cream cheese and peaches!

  2. What a fantastic idea! I love how they look, would be great for a party appetizer too! Thanks for the great recipe!

  3. I love this clever idea. I always think that food presented in this fashion helps children want to try new things to eat. I’ll try this one out on my grand kids.

  4. Well now, I am not a peach fan, do you think you could substitute… say Delmonte dried Apples?

  5. What a good healthy alternative idea, especially since so many schools are going peanut and nut-free for snacks

  6. wow great idea, I can’t wait to try this!

  7. Those look yummy. Kind of like a dessert too.
