Strawberry Ricotta Honey Toast

Inspired by Ms. Mary of T&R Dairy’s recipe with an added touch of bee pollen, this strawberry toast is sure to become your new favorite snack. Okay, seriously, I eat this toast every morning and most nights. It’s easy, nutritious, comes together ever-so-quickly, and satiates even the most aggressive sweet-tooth (speaking from experience). Not to mention, every ingredient can be found at market!



  • 1 slice bread of choice, toasted
  • 3 Tbsp. ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup diced or sliced strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp. Powers honey
  • Powers Bee Pollen


Toast the slice of bread to your liking and slice the strawberries.

Spread ricotta on toast, tossing strawberry slices on top.

Drizzle with honey and sprinkle on pollen.
