Good Foods Avocado Ranch Roll-Ups

Back to school time equals lots of lunch prep. If you’re looking for something super fun and delicious to break up the same old staples this cute caterpillar lunch is just the thing! The Guacamole Ranch Roll-Ups are an easy way to sneak extra veggies into your kid’s school day, and can be made the night before to save time (little ones might also enjoy assisting in the process of filling and rolling the wraps).

Just like Good Foods Guacamole, this lunch is vegetarian and packed full of wholesome ingredients (you can make this recipe dairy free as well by substituting the cream cheese and ranch dip with dairy free options).

The decorations were inspired by one of my favorite childhood books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and are easily added using a few more veggies, your favorite fruit, and cookie cutters. Pack with a Good Foods Tableside Chunky Guacamole for dipping. Thanks to the individual containers it’ll stay fresh (and green) until lunchtime.

Ingredients: (serves 2)

Guacamole Ranch Roll-ups:

2 spinach wraps

2 tablespoons whipped cream cheese

3 tablespoons Good Foods Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

Salt and pepper to taste

3/4 cup shredded cabbage and carrots

1/2 cup chopped veggies (I used cucumber and bell peppers)

2 single serve Good Foods Tableside Chunky Guacamole packs

Caterpillar Decorations:

2 large cherry tomatoes or 1 Roma tomato

Yellow bell pepper or 1 slice cheddar cheese

1 sheet nori or spinach leaves

Small kitchen scissors

Flower Fruit Art:

Favorite fruits (I used watermelon, mango, kiwi and blueberries)

1/8 cup chocolate chips

Small flower cookie cutters

1-2 inch round cookie cutter

Large round piping tip

Sharp kitchen knife

Wax paper

Toothpicks

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, ranch dip, salt and pepper.
  2. Use a butter knife to spread half of the ranch mixture onto each spinach wrap, completely covering one side.
  3. Sprinkle chopped veggies on top and tightly roll together. Use more cream cheese, if needed, to seal the end of the wrap. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour (or overnight).
  4. Use scissors to cut shapes out of the nori. (or spinach leaves if you prefer) You will want a tiny circle for the nose, 2 ovals for the eyes, 2 exclamation point lines for the antennae, and 6 tiny L shapes for the legs. Set these aside until ready to decorate.
  5. To make the face for the sun, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals (at 50% power) until smooth. Then dip a toothpick into the melted chocolate and draw the face onto wax paper. Allow to set.
  6. When you are ready to pack the lunch, Cut the roll-up into about 10 segments and arrange in your lunchbox. Add the cherry tomato (or one end of the Roma tomato) for the head, then 2 ovals cut from cheddar or yellow pepper for the eyes, and top with your nori (or spinach) cutouts. You can use more cream cheese, if needed, to make the eyes stick.
  7. To make the sunny fruit scene, use a circle cookie cutter to cut the sun out of mango, and a sharp knife to cut the strips for the rays. Add your chocolate face details on top. Cut a kiwi into segments and lay flat. Then use the flower cookie cutters and round cutter to make flowers with your other fruits. Arrange on top of the kiwi. Complete with an individual Good Foods Guacamole for dipping and your cute creation is ready to enjoy!

Any leftover ingredients can be covered and stored in the refrigerator. If you try this The Very Hungry Caterpillar inspired tutorial I would love to see!
