It’s taco time, but this time the filling is full of fresh fruit! This is a simple way to add more fruit to your day and introduce new fruits to your family in a fun way. This can be a great breakfast option on the weekend or even try it as a weeknight dessert. This is one taco recipe you can feel good about eating.
• Hard Taco shells
• Fresh fruit such as mandarin orange slices, diced kiwi, hulled strawberries, bananas, sliced, cantaloupe chunks, sliced grapes or chopped apples
• 2-3 Tablespoons lemon juice
• 8 oz. low sugar vanilla yogurt (such as Two Good or Siggi’s)
• Chopped nuts such as pecans or slivered almonds (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 F. Spread out the Taco Shells on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake shells in the oven for approximately 5-7 minutes until they are warmed through.
While the taco shells are baking, cut the fruit into equal sized pieces and place each type of fruit in separate bowls. Sprinkle the fruit with lemon juice to keep the fruit from browning.
Fill the taco shells with your favorite fruit, spoon on some yogurt on top of the fruit, and top it off with some nuts, if using.
