3 Healthy Rice Cake Toppings
My husband, Little Love and Tiny Love all enjoy rice cakes. I love coming up with different ways to enjoy them! All you need is some Sprouts Brand organic rice cakes on hand and a handful of exciting and delicious real food toppings.
Greek Yogurt with Pistachios & Honey
Get some creamy, whole milk, thick Greek yogurt, slather it on top of the rice cake and top it with shelled pistachios and a drizzle of honey for a delectable snack. This flavor combo is absolutely divine!
Cucumbers, Cream Cheese & Olives
While I love all of these rice cake toppings, this one just might be my favorite because it reminds me of my mom. She LOVED the cucumber, cream cheese and olive flavor combo and always made it for tea parties. It quickly became my favorite as a child too.
For this topper, I like to thinly slice up some cucumbers, feather thin, and add a generous layer of cream cheese topped with sliced black olives, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. So good!
Melted Chocolate, Fresh Berries & Sea Salted Medjool Dates
Can I just say this one is AMAZING! Wow it is such a fun, extra special treat! Start by soaking some sweet, almost caramel-like Medjool dates. Once they've softened up a bit, pop them into a blender or food processor with a little bit of the date soak water to make a chunky date paste.
While they're soaking, make up some homemade chocolate sauce. Oh my goodness this healthy chocolate sauce is heaven. Spread a layer of date paste on the rice cake, top with fresh berries, lots of silky chocolate drizzles and some flaked sea salt. Yes please!!!
