Fruit Tacos – Day 27 of 30 Days of Healthy Homemade Summer Treats

30 Days of Healthy Homemade Summer Treats

Cinnamon coated taco shells holding wonderful chopped fruit makes a really fun snack. You can also use cinnamon chips and just dip them in the fruit if that’s easier, but the taco shape is kind of fun, if potentially messy. You know how kids are.


2 apples
1 lb strawberries
2 kiwis
1 banana
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 tbsp lime or lemon juice
1-2 tbsp brown sugar if needed for sweetness

flour tortillas (1 per person)
melted butter
cinnamon and sugar mix

Peel, core and dice each fruit as appropriate. I’m trusting here you know how to deal with each of these fruits. You want small pieces.

Mix all fruits, lime or lemon juice, and brown sugar in a bowl and refrigerate.

Take one flour tortilla per person, brush with melted butter and fold loosely in half to make a taco shell. Sprinkle with a cinnamon sugar mix, inside and on top. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes.

Have fun with the fruit and switch it up. You don’t have to use the same fruits all the time. Use whatever’s in season and available in your area as much as possible.
