Blueberry Nectarine Dessert Tacos

Dessert tacos with nectarine and blueberry

It’s Taco Tuesday!

And we are creating a whole new spin on the festivities… 

Dessert Tacos!

Now, that’s a fun twist, right? Because who doesn’t like tacos? And who doesn’t like dessert?  

So, we are convinced… Dessert Tacos = Life

 

I used pre-made crepes for my taco shells and filled them with whipped cream and fresh California nectarines and plump California blueberries. I decided to top it all off with California crushed almonds. It is quite the combination! Like a match made in heaven…

Let’s get started!

Crepes in a 6 inch diameter circle

Start with trimming down your crepes to about an 6″ diameter circle if they aren’t already a manageable size.

 

Freeze crepe into a taco shape

I froze my crepes while I was preparing the rest of the ingredients to get them a little hardened and cold. I used aluminum foil as a prop to keep the crepe in a “taco” position.

Real California Milk

Fresh whipped cream

Have you ever made fresh whip cream? It really is worth the extra 5 minutes…

Take one cup of cream and place in a mixer with the whisk attachment. Whisk on high for about a minute, then add 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Whisk until stiff peaks form, about another minute.

If you’d rather not and want to use supermarket whipped cream, then by all means, go for it!
