Not Very Scary Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. Recipes with Dole

This is a sponsored post. I am an official ambassador for Dole. Dole provided me with compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are mine.

Dole Food Company has called upon Mike, Sulley and the rest of the gang from Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University, to help kids (and their parents) learn more about fruits and veggies that they still find scary. Dole’s “Fruit and Veggies Don’t Have to Be Scary” initiative includes 10 exciting, character themed original recipes using fruits and veggies that may look scary to some. Brussels sproutsartichokeshorned melondragon fruitstar fruitkiwiplantains and a host of other commonly misunderstood fruits and veggies are the stars of these recipes.

Plus, right now, shoppers can find images of Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan from Pixar’s Monsters, Inc., on millions of DOLE® Bananas and Pineapples in supermarkets throughout North America!

Dole new character recipes that incorporate “scary” produce are not only super fun, but yummy too! My kids and I made the Mike Wazowski Fruit Stack recipe – Mike is one of our favorite Monsters, Inc. employees. He came alive on the plate thanks to DOLE® Kiwi and Pineapple slices arranged with horned and honey dew melon. Dragon fruit and a dried blueberry become Mike’s eye.

We really enjoyed making this recipe together. The kids especially liked tasting new fruits that they’ve never had before. Lets just say they gobbled down the dragon fruit!

Yummy Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. Recipes

Here are some more of the Dole original, Not-Very-Scary recipes inspired by Pixar’s Monsters Inc. and Monsters University characters. Although, all 10 look great, these ones especially caught my eye.

Chicken Stuffed Roz Heads – Create the face of the iconic Monsters, Inc. receptionist by topping DOLE® Avocado halves stuffed with lean chicken breast, DOLE® Green Grapes, DOLE® Celery and nonfat Greek yogurt with pretzel twists and sticks, and DOLE® Strawberry and Blueberry slices.

Green Slimesicles – Dessert time takes an icky-but-tasty turn with these healthy frozen popsicles made from DOLE® Spinach, Bananas and Pineapple.

Monstropolis Waffles – Mornings will never be the same with these scary-good monster versions of the breakfast classic made with DOLE®Green Plantains, Kiwi and Blueberries.

Sulley Banana Dip – DOLE® Green Apples and Red and Green Grapes are dipped in a blend of DOLE® Bananas, natural peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, dried berries and natural teal gel food coloring to give it that unmistakable Sulley hue.

Oodles of Monster Swoodles – DOLE® Sweet Potatoes or Broccoli Stems are way more fun when they are spiralized and mixed with garlic, olive oil and cherry tomatoes for a little shock value.

Don’t these recipes look great?!! I can’t wait to make them all. For more original recipes and other information about “Not-Very-Scary” fruits and veggies go to
