The word fresh always comes to mind once Spring rolls around! Easter happens at that special time of year when the grass gets greener, birds chirp, and the tulips begin to poke through the ground. With holidays, we know that it’s the perfect time to get together with family and friends to share a meal and time together. At Pure Flavor®, we love everything fresh and want to ensure that you have your favorite fruits & vegetables on hand to create the perfect meal!

Family & friends often gather for meals through the weekend.

These two-bite crostini are not only fast to prepare and assemble, but they have an irresistible crunch that is satisfying. Our cool and crisp Uno Bites™ Nano Cucumbers are paired with another spring favorite, asparagus.

Looking for a unique drink that will taste equally as good as it looks? These Iced Strawberry Matcha Lattes take only a few minutes to prepare and are so appealing to look at. The addition of our Sweet Blooms® Strawberries makes this one vitamin-packed beverage and using plant-based milk makes this friendly for those looking for something dairy-free!
Bite-sized and handheld items are an excellent addition to any brunch because of their convenience. It is the perfect serving size and allows people to be able to try other things on the table without being filled up. Bright Aurora Bites Mini Sweet Peppers complement these cups so well and add the perfect pop of color.
If there is one dish that is sure to be a hit, it’s this one. Indulge in everything bagels sliced up with cream cheese, eggs, and a few other ingredients, but what really sets this dish apart from others is the fresh addition of Azuca Red Cherry Tomatoes. It’s the perfect balance of carbs, protein, and veggies that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser and you can’t go wrong with a one-pan dish!
Packed to the brim with our Sweet Blooms® Strawberries and topped with a strawberry glaze, this pound cake is the perfect sweet ending to your brunch. This recipe comes together in one bowl and is poured into a loaf pan in just a few minutes. The longest part is letting it bake and waiting for it to cool down before glazing and devouring it!
Pro Tip: If you’ve got little ones around while you’re in the kitchen (and they aren’t busy helping set the table), our Easter-themed activity sheets are great to print off and entertain the kids.
Preparing to host –
When setting the table or buffet for Easter, adding a vase of fresh flowers or simply scattering small decorative eggs around, is a nice touch to really get in the holiday spirit. While it’s not necessary to decorate for your meal, it is a great way to add a little pizazz that may impress your guests for the time and effort you put into the little details. Bright or pastel colors are also great to include whether it’s in the plates, cutlery, napkins, or even glassware. Be creative and use your imagination to create something beautiful for your friends and family.
The beauty of having a light and fresh meal is that you won’t be feeling tired or heavy after eating. After consuming so many delicious Pure Flavor® fruits and veggies, you’ll be fuelled and ready to go for your Easter egg hunt!
