Fresh Berry Tacos put berries in a taco for a quick breakfast or snack. Try it for dessert, too!
These fresh berry tacos are downright tasty in a juicy, creamy, healthy kind of way. All the kids at my house are convinced that you can put almost anything in a taco and it will taste good. While I don’t know if I’d go quite that far, I am almost as much of a taco fanatic as they are. I can say with certainty that you can eat tacos for every meal, plus dessert and snacks too!
With a dollop of ricotta cheese, a light dressing, and a pile of sweet, fresh berries, these tacos are a little bit breakfast, a little bit dessert, and a little bit snack food – it all just depends on the time of day you choose to eat them. It’s a versatile recipe, and when it comes to cooking for a family, there is nothing I appreciate more in a recipe than a lot of room for flexibility.
My kids are not picky eaters. When it comes to breakfast, however, they can be mighty particular. The problem isn’t that they don’t like a lot of things because they will eat almost any breakfast food I put in front of them. The problem is that they want variety. “We already had oatmeal on Monday. We can’t eat it again this week,” or so they tell me. If it was eggs yesterday, it can’t be eggs today. Admittedly, it’s a rather obnoxious problem.
These fresh berry tacos are my solution to the problem. Right now, we are mixing it up with different kinds of berries. Once that loses appeal, I think I will switch out the ricotta for plain yogurt. I might even ditch the dressing too and throw in vanilla yogurt next. And when that stops doing the trick, I will add sliced peaches and bananas into the mix too. See what I mean? You can adapt this recipe to what is in season and to individual preferences within your own family of eaters. Tacos are the best!
If you’re not quite ready to trade in your morning oatmeal and toast for a fresh berry taco, you can still make a plan to enjoy it later in the day. It makes a healthy after school snack and a light dessert too. No matter when you enjoy it, you will find that berries + tacos are a winning combination!
