Who is ready for some festive Red, White and Blue treats!? 
How can you not look at beautiful, fresh fruit and not be happy and want to eat it?
So, we are getting into my favorite time of year to bake! And look look look! I made patriotic dessert tacos.  Okay basically I made several versions of a dessert tacos simply by switching up the fruit. But that’s what makes these tasty little summer treats so awesome, you can top them with anything you like!

I really struggled with what to call these. Patriotic dessert tacos? Summer dessert tacos? Backyard bbq tacos with cheesecake and fruit? I don’t know, it all felt weird and good at the same way. But obviously I settled on “summer berry cheesecake tacos” and that seems to work okay.

To make this easy dessert tacos recipe, you will need:

Flour tortillas
Graham cracker crumbs
Butter
Heavy cream
Cream cheese
Lemon zest
Vanilla
Powdered sugar
Fresh Strawberries and Blueberries, (or any other berry up to your taste)
Standard Muffin Pan

You can make the taco shells ahead of time and chill them til you’re ready to serve dessert after your big backyard bbq!  Strawberries and blueberries are perfect for the Memorial day and fourth of July, but don’t let that stop you from switching things up.
