This Japanese bagel fruit sandwich is a chubbier and chewier version of the classic Japanese Fruit Sando. It’s made with homemade matcha bagel, fresh strawberries and cream cheese whip!


Units Scale

Cream Cheese Whip*

  • 1 cup (250 ml) whipping cream
  • 8 oz (227 g) tub of cream cheese
  • 1 vanilla bean pod or 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/32/3 (38 – 85 g) powdered sugar

Fruit Bagel Sando

  • 1 matcha bagel
  • 37 strawberries
  • 1 cup cream cheese whip


  1. Add whipping cream to a bowl of a stand mix and whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Transfer to another bowl and keep refrigerated.
  2. Add cream cheese, sugar and vanilla to the bowl and whisk until well combined, scrapping down the sides as needed . Add the whip cream and mix together using the paddle attachment. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure everything is well mixed.
  3. Slice the bagel in half. Then make a shallow cut on the top of the bagel to make a pre-cut (this makes it easier to cut the sandwich in half later).
  4. Spread the cream cheese whip on the bottom half of the bagel. Place strawberries on top. Cover the fruit with more cream cheese whip and smooth the top. Add the top half of the bagel and align the pre-sliced line to the strawberries. Wrap the bagel with cling wrap.
  5. Place into the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  6. When ready, slice using the pre-cut as a guide using a serrated bread knife for best results. Enjoy!!
