Dessert is generally my favorite meal of any day, so when Mission Organics® Tortillas asked me to create a summer recipe from their amazing, new-to-market, organic product line, I was over the moon excited. Not only are they USDA organic certified, they are also non-GMO project verified. I am trying to eat (and share) the very best foods possible, and I love that this recipe is both easy to recreate, and also a great way to incorporate more fresh fruit into my meals.
Organic foods are very important to me. I aim to purchase as many organic ingredients as I possibly can, so when companies offer an organic option to their already delicious products, I always go for that option!
I am all about finding good sales on fresh ingredients, and berries in particular are always on sale during early summer. In fact, these blackberries were only ONE DOLLAR a pint at my local grocery store. I made sure to grab them after I was in the tortilla aisle getting my Mission Organics Tortilla! I grabbed a little more to freeze as well.
Keep reading to see how to incorporate those fresh ingredients into a delicious dessert, filled with crispy crunch cinnamon sugar tortillas, topped with loads of fresh berries, and more!
This fun recipe is going to impress anyone you serve it to, and would even be a cute date-night or summer party dessert idea!
If you’re having a party, or want to make dessert time a bit more fun and interactive, serve fresh fruit toppings in bowls over ice, and allow guests to top the crispy dessert tortillas themselves.
The recipe is simple! (Serves 2-3)
- 1 Package of Mission Organics Tortillas (I used Whole Wheat but also available in Flour and White Corn)
- 1 container each of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries (Organic Preferred)
- 1 container of whipped topping , homemade whipped cream, or coconut whipped cream
- Butter or Margarine Spread + Butter Knife
- Cinnamon and Sugar (Organic Evaporated Cane Sugar Preferred)
- Skillet + Stovetop
- Knife to cut strawberries
1.) Heat skillet to medium, and butter both sides of each tortilla. I cooked one at a time in each skillet I had. I recommend warming up any tortilla, they are much tastier.
2.) Once the butter is melted, add the sugar, let it cook a little bit, and flip the tortilla. Then sprinkle sugar on the second side and sauté until the sugar begins to melt.
3.) Once tortillas are crispy, as shown above, remove them from the skillet and set them on a plate or cutting board. Sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon on each tortilla. I used a bit of waxed paper on top of my cutting board to prep and serve the food, which made cleanup a breeze.
4.) Add a dollop of whipped topping, and spread it to around ¼” thick or more on top of each tortilla.
5.) Slice strawberries in half lengthwise, and keep green parts attached while cutting for a cute presentation. Add about 6 strawberries (cut in half), all around the edges. Place blackberries and then blueberries inside the middle.
I absolutely LOVE the rustic look of this dessert! I also love finding new ways to eat more fruit, so this really is a great recipe for that as well.
