My winter hibernation period is now officially over and I’m embracing springtime to the fullest. It doesn’t look like spring yet (still some snow on the ground) but these little snacks – Key lime pie & piña colada toasts help me get in the right mood. Whenever I’m craving sweet toasts I try to come up with new yummy vegan spreads. But not just yummy, preferably healthy and wholesome too. These two spreads are all that and more (+ spring vibes guaranteed!).
Snacktime becomes pretty amazing if you have lime, avocado, pineapple and coconut cream. You also need about 20 minutes and preferably at least another 20 min to enjoy these sweet toasties in a relaxed way. Just a bite of these and you’ll be transported into a green sunny place 🙂 After a long moody winter, that’s exactly what I’m longing for.
Would you like to have a bite?
ps. This recipe is also perfect for all you avocado fans (everyone I assume?). If you haven’t tried sweet avo toasts yet, you should definitely give them a try 🙂
