For me, one of the hardest meals is breakfast. It’s tough to find a quick and easy option that is filling and good for you. This strawberry ricotta breakfast toast is a perfect solution. After toasting a hearty, whole-grain bread, I spread a thick layer of ricotta cheese* and top with with sliced strawberries, almonds and honey.

To make this breakfast a bit more fun, I added some Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb honey and honeycomb pieces, giving you a boost of natural energy and sweetness without adding all that processed sugar to your meal. Yes, you can eat honeycomb. I know it sounds strange, but it’s actually really great. It’s smooth and sweet and pairs really well with the nuttiness of the almonds. Anyway, I found this particular honey at Walmart in the Hispanic aisle.

Dairy free tip: Try swapping vegan ricotta for this recipe to make it dairy free. Or, try some thinly sliced avocado
