Fresh and Fruity Breakfast Quesadillas Recipe


Trying to include fruits and/or vegetables at every meal requires us to get creative! One of those fruits I want to include more of this spring is fresh pineapple!

Pineapple is great because it benefits:

  • Immunity!  1 cup of pineapple has 131% the daily value of vitamin C.
  • Digestion! Pineapple has enzymes that specifically assist the digestive process.
  • Energy! Pineapple contains manganese necessary to convert food to energy!

I bought the sweetest pineapple at the grocery store this week.  We just about finished it off, when I cut off a chunk to include in some fruit quesadillas.  We decided to cut it up and add other tropical fruits.  Our Fruity Breakfast Quesadillas Recipe included:

  • Pineapple
  • Strawberries
  • Oranges
  • and a mango

We then mixed the fruit with some light cream cheese, and spread it between two whole wheat tortillas, and grilled it until the tortillas were crispy.

This is such a great idea. It seems that I can wrap almost anything into a tortilla and call it a quesadilla and my kids will eat it; whereas if I were to fix it separately they wouldn’t touch it. That looks like a great summer dish as well.

What kind of tortillas do you use? I would love to be able to serve tortillas again, but I don’t like to make them and I haven’t found any that I consider “real food”. I haven’t been able to find any that aren’t highly processed, with ingredients like GMO sugar, GMO corn, hydrogenated oils or palm oil, and presevatives.

If you live in the area of a site, Bountiful Baskets co-op has AMAZING tortillas without all the junk found in most brands. It does require you to contribute for produce through the co-op but thats just a bonus. Check out http://www.BountifulBaskets.org for details and a location near you. They are 100 volunteer and non profit so please dont confuse this comment as a solicitation, just a happy mom able to serve her family foods without all the added junk.

I just read the whole wheat Trader Joe’s tortillas package and they are definitely better (as far as healthy ingredients) than any I’ve seen. I’m not thrilled about the soybean oil, since we are trying to stay away from soy. However, they have a short ingredient list that looks decent so I’m going to try them. I didn’t know Trader Joes made tortillas. Thanks for your help.
