Have you had sweet tacos before?! I am so excited to share these cinnamon sugary sweet fruit tacos with you today! These dessert tacos are great for summer and light dessert or even brunch. The cinnamon toasted taco shells are filled with a honeyed greek yogurt topped with slightly sweetened fruit. Use your favorite fruit to individualize your guests tacos. Any sliced and diced fruit works great!

Dessert Tacos

I used the stand n stuff tacos by Old El Paso.  Use regular flour tortillas too.  Could even be dessert tostadas.

Let’s start by brushing the inside of each shell with melted butter.

    Love these little shells as they are a big improvement on soft tacos or taco salads…perfect size! Easy to pick up and eat too. To use them for simple, sweet desserts is genius.

    Hi there! These look amazing and I think they’re delicious too but… I see you took these kind of boat-sell-“tortillas”. Here Mexico, when you fill a toasted or fried tortilla with any kind or food we call it TOSTADA.
    Not a Taco or Tortilla anymore: Tostadas.
    Just a comment.
    Love your recipies.
