Covered in a layer of smooth, honey-sweetened cream cheese, with a rainbow of fresh fruit arranged on top, make these fruit pizza bagels are as much fun to eat as they are to make and serve.
These bagels are such a fun twist on the classic fruit pizza dessert, that are always a hit with crowds of all ages. This super simple, yet "Pinterest-worthy" snack can ultimately be pulled together in no time for any casual entertaining occasion, letting you can impress everybody with your culinary creativity, without telling them how easy it really was ;) Or, you can get everyone involved and set up a "create your own" station and let everybody make their own fruit creation on top of their bagels, for a totally custom DIY treat, great for kids and adults alike.
Start by slicing up some fresh fruit.
Then, sweeten your cream cheese with a little honey and vanilla, for a creamy, dreamy bagel spread. Since the cream cheese is the foundation of the recipe, make sure to use the best quality. I always use Philadelphia Cream Cheese. It is made with fresh milk, real cream and no preservatives. Pair it with fresh fruit and you'll get the best-tasting results, every time!
Top with the fruit, serve and enjoy!
