Avocado Cream Cheese Snack Roll-Ups


My son is so incredibly hungry when he comes home from school. He spends the time from when he gets home from school until dinner time eating every piece of fruit he can find in the house. I love that he eats so much fruit, but sometimes I just want to have a snack for him with a little more fat that can keep him satisfied until dinner, especially when we have other things to do after school.

So earlier this week I made one of my favorite party appetizers for him as a make-ahead after-school snack. These little cream cheese bites have always been one of my favorite appetizer foods, but I don’t make them nearly often enough at home. And since my son loves them too, I thought making a bunch of them early in the week, and then separating them in small storage containers would be a great idea for a hearty kid-friendly snack.


These little snack roll-ups are loaded with flavor too. I added a whole avocado, bacon, tomato and fresh cilantro. I also added some spring onions and a bit of cumin. These taste pretty much like a southwest inspired BLT, but in wrap form!

The one thing I love about these is that you can add any veggie you like to the cream cheese, omit the bacon, and add any type of fresh herb. There’s so many possibilities.

This recipe makes two large tortillas that you roll up and slice up. There’s at least 6 servings, depending on how much your kid eats. I split these little rolls up in separate small storage containers, so they’re super easy to hand to my son after school, to pack in his lunch, or to take  in the car for a snack.

    I’m just finding this on pinterest. I’m curious as to how the avocado holds up for subsequent days.

    I’ve never commented on the internet, but this recipe was TOO GOOD. I added another avocado, doubled the bacon and added one jalapeno, seeds and all. My husband and I are DYING!! This is amazing. Thanks for the recipe!

    Give him a big glass of water with his snack. Most people run around chronically dehydrated, and can’t tell the difference between thirst and hunger.
