Mean Green Kiwifruit Peanut Butter Sandwiches

Kids, parents and teachers can make this fun, colorful sandwich in a matter of minutes. This sandwich combines kiwifruit, bananas and peanut butter, making it a delicious and nutritious lunch or afternoon snack.

1/3 ripe banana, cut into small chunks

4 tablespoons low-fat or not-fat cream cheese, room temperature

4 slices good quality pre-sliced whole wheat bread, toasted lightly

4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, regular or reduced-fat

2 kiwifruit, sliced into eight thick rounds

Place the banana pieces and cream cheese into a bowl and mash together with a fork until will blended. Alternately, the ingredients can be placed in a food processor and pulsed until just blended. Spread banana cream cheese on one side of two pieces of toast. Spread peanut butter on the remaining two slices of toast. Top banana cream cheese toast slices with peanut butter toast slices, making two sandwiches. Cut each sandwich diagonally in half, then in quarters. (Cutting the sandwich before adding kiwifruit prevents it from slipping out.) Remove top toast quarters (peanut butter) from the sandwiches and place one slice of kiwifruit on the bottom toast quarters (banana cream cheese). Replace top slices, adding more peanut butter if necessary to hold kiwifruit in place. Makes two sandwiches.
