Transcript:Fruit TacosHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make fruit tacos.
Fruit Taco IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- taco shells
- fresh fruit, like nectarines, strawberries, and bananas
- 2-3 tablespoons orange juice
- small yogurts of different flavors and colors
- a variety of chopped or sliced nuts
- a collection of bowls and spoons
Bake the Taco ShellsPlace the taco shells on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Spread them out all around the sheet. Put them in a 325 degree oven and heat for about 5-7 minutes.
Cut the Fresh FruitMeanwhile, cut the fruit and place each of them in separate bowls. For pitted fruit, cut around the pit and slice the fruit.
You can cut the fruit into very small pieces so it's easier to spoon out of the bowl later. Be sure to hull the strawberries so everything in the bowl is ready to eat.
To keep the fruit fresh and moist, add a little orange juice in each bowl and coat the fruit. Place a spoon in each bowl.
Put the Yogurts in BowlsThen, lay out each yogurt flavor also on aluminum foil-lined trays or sheets. This will catch any spills or drips. Peel off the tops and put a small spoon in each yogurt flavor.
You can see this yogurt has bright fun colors for kids. You can use plastic spoons and bowls for an easy clean up. Also place spoons in the bowls with the nuts.
Set Up the Fruit Taco BuffetSet up your buffet with first the taco shells, then the bowls of fruit, then the tray of yogurt, and the nuts last.
Invite your birthday party guests to fill their tacos with their favorite fruits, spoon on some yogurt, and finally top it off with some nuts. Your guests will love this creative, interactive, and healthy snack.
