Strawberry Cheesecake Tacos

Strawberry Cheesecake Tacos

Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert Taco

This is Texas, where pretty much anything you can imagine eating can be made into a taco. Breakfast, lunch dinner and dessert, we love our tacos and we really love eating with our hands (and we really, really love eating, period).

This strawberry cheesecake taco can be altered to suit your taste or dietary requirements and you can replace the yogurt and cream cheese with ice cream and replace the strawberries with almost any fruit (banana tacos?) if you are lucky enough to be able to each such things. I had these ingredients left over in the ‘fridge, so this is what you get. If you get creative on me and use crunchy taco shells, I want to hear about it. And if you include Nutella, I want pictures.


Serves 4


1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1 Tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 small container vanilla yogurt (approx 5 oz).
2 cups roughly chopped fresh strawberries (not frozen)
1 Tablespoons oil such as extra virgin olive or avocado oil
4 flour tortillas (6 inches)


  • In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, honey and cinnamon with a small whisk until combined; add yogurt and mix until creamy

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil/butter. You’ll want the pan hot for this so give it a minute or 2 to get hot. Add one tortilla, heat until lightly golden, flip and repeat. Place tortillas on a wire rack or to cool for 5 minutes

  • Spread tortillas equally with with cream cheese mixture, add berries, fold and serve.

    Eat well and respect your body. Your life depends on it!

Tah y’all!
