3-2-1 Blastoff! What kid wouldn’t love a rocket ship going off into space for their lunch?
Awhile back I guest posted over at Build a Menu sharing this Rocket Ship Lunch. I made a new one that is even better! Today’s plate incorporates carrots, yellow pepper, fresh turkey breast, a high-protein wrap, and greek yogurt. I made this lunch for my girls several times and each time I did, they were so excited! I think it is one of their favorites!
1 whole grain tortilla wrap (I use the Ole Xtreme wellness Multi-Grain. It has the highest protein and fiber bang for your buck)
2 baby carrots
3 thin slices yellow bell pepper
1 T yogurt (any kind – I used greek for the high protein content)
To make Rocket Lunch:
Assemble your turkey wrap by placing some mayo or miracle whip,turkey breast and any other desired elements into tortilla. Roll as you would a burrito. Slice off one end completely so you have a straight bottom edge for your rocket. For the top of the rocket, slice your wrap into a point shape. Take a small portion of the tortilla you cut off and slice two thin triangles to place on the sides of your main wrap as shown above.
Next, slice a baby carrot into wheels. Use two wheels for windows on the rocket. Slice another baby carrot in half lengthwise and cut about 1/3 off of the top of each half to create a straight edge. Place one half carrot in the center beneath the rocket, and slice your other remaining half in half again. Arrange carrots with two thin slices of yellow bell pepper as shown. Now you have your flames coming from the rocket!
Finally, it’s time to make your smoke trail and stars. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of yogurt into a plastic bag. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag, and use the bag to pipe little stars all around the rocket as well as little trails of smoke beneath the rocket.
*I’ve mentioned before that I can get away using any kind of yogurt when it becomes a design piped on a plate. Although my kids would never reach for a cup of unsweetened Greek yogurt from the fridge, they lick it all up when it’s served on a creative plate like this! *
