Picnic-Ready Vegan Strawberry Cream Cheese Pinwheels

March 17, 2021
Spring will officially be here this weekend and I am already looking forward to the perfect picnic weather that is to follow. One of my favorite finger foods to bring along with me on my outdoor adventures are pinwheels. They are packed with veggies to keep you full, easy to transport, and simple to put together. They can be made with virtually any filling that you like but I chose to stuff mine with a refreshing strawberry and spinach salad.

Pinwheels are generally made with a cream cheese spread on the wrap to hold it together when you roll it. This happens to be the perfect flavor to combine with strawberries, as many desserts often use these flavors together. There are finally a bunch of different vegan cream cheese brands accessible in everyday grocery stores, so this should be an easy find. Make sure to spread only a thin layer of toppings on your wrap to ensure you will be able to roll it.
