Cinnamon Sugar Fruit Cup #backtoschoolweek

Cinnamon sugar wonton wrappers 

hold an assortment of sweet and fresh fruit!

These kid-pleasing fruit cups are the perfect after school snack!

Cinnamon Sugar Fruit Cup

We eat a crazy amount of fruit!  I’d call us fruitarians, but we do eat other foods like chili dogs and cookies (lots of cookies)! Fruit is just so easy.  It’s the perfect “wash and go” food.  We snack on fruit, we eat it with our cereal or in our smoothies, we eat it with lunch, dinner and in between.

Today was the first day I had to pack school lunches.  From now on I’ll be a lunch packing machine.  I’ll be packing 60 lunches a month, not counting my husbands lunches.  Yep, I’m a lunch packing expert!

I’m recruiting some help this year.  My oldest daughter Ellie is 9, going on 10.   She’s been my apprentice in the kitchen.  It turns out she’s a really good student.  She is our in house guacamole maker, scrambled egg chef and now fruit cup maker!  She received her own cookbook for her last birthday.  We broke it out to make these sweet little cups to pack in our lunches!   Wonton wrappers were sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, baked and filled with lots fresh, sweet, seasonal fruit!

What we love about this fruit cup recipe, aside from the ease, is that there aren’t that many ingredients and everything is natural and fresh.  Mix the fruit with a little honey and lime juice and fill your baked cups.  These little cups were going into our school lunches, but we saved a couple for an after school snack!
I was proud to see Ellie creating in the kitchen.  I could see her self confidence blossoming and her appreciation for food expanding!  It reminded me that I should allow all three of my kids to get in the kitchen with me as often as possible!  I want nothing more than for all of them to have a healthy love for food!

    • Thats exactly what I was hoping for! Thanks Aimee!

  1. I made cinnamon sugar wontons before but filled them with pudding. {http://reddyorknot.blogspot.com/2012/07/cinnamon-sugar-pudding-cups.html} Fruit is a great idea to mix it up!!

    • Pudding would be a great filling! The possibilities are endless I suppose!

  2. These are so smart and what fun!!!! I think they would be great for a cocktail party!

  3. Awe! That’s so cute!! I loved helping my Mom in the kitchen when I was kid. I still have my childhood cookbooks. :)

  4. Have the battle of getting kids to eat healthy is to make the food look tasty. These fruit cups certainly look tasty, Tanya. What a great idea! I bet your kids gobble ‘em up. :)

    • You are right John, I guess I need to find a way to make asparagus look tasty!

      • Good luck with that! :)

  5. I love that your daughter is helping you in the kitchen! Someday I hope mine will :) These fruit cups look so yummy and we eats fruit like crazy too. I hate winter when none of it is very good!

    • Julie, Miss K will totally be in the kitchen with you! Some just help so they can lick the bowl, but I’m ok with that! Thanks Julie!

  6. What a great recipe, Tanya! My boys love fruit, and these are so CUTE! Great photos of course, and I was admiring those colorful measuring spoons before I realized they were a prize in a giveaway. They are really adorable.

    • The measuring cups are my favorite! Thanks so much Andi!

    • They were a huge hit around here! Thanks Kari!

  7. Those fruit cups are beautiful! Your daughter is quite the chef isn’t she? Just lovely. Is it wrong that I want the giveaway for myself? As old as I am I thought they were really cool! :) Hahaha!

    • There’s nothing wrong with that Kelli! I actually use them too, they are too cute! I’m very proud of my daughter, thank you.

  8. I love that your daughter is into cooking! What an amazing thing to pass onto her! These turned out gorgeous Tanya!!

    • Yep, it’s pretty fun Lisa! Thank you.

    • Thank you Jessica! I am loving the time spent with my daughter in the kitchen! It would be even better if I could get her to do the dishes too!

  9. These are beautiful!! My daughter helped me with lunch once, then got bored. I forgot her juice box today, so maybe that’ll get her back in the mood. ;)

    • Thank you Dorothy. My other two kids get really bored if there isn’t anything for them to lick. I guess 1 out of 3 kids who want to help in the kitchen isn’t that bad!

  10. A Little Claireification

    Tanya these are SUCH a great idea!! You’re so clever, girl!! :)
    Pinned! xoxo

  11. I love eating fruit! These are really cute – I’ve never thought to serve fruit in a wonton wrapper made into a cup!

    • Thank you! We were really happy with how they turned out.

  12. These look like the perfect snack….or even dessert! I love the idea of an edible cup!!

    • It’s definitely a fun snack to eat. Thanks Cathy!

  13. cookingwithcurls

    Those are adorable Tanya. It’s fun having a little sous chef around isn’t it? :)

    • It is fun and it makes me so proud Lisa!

  14. We would love for your to share your amazing work with our readers at our weekly Super Saturday Link party at MadeFromPinterest.net. We go live every Friday at 8 pm.
    This is such a great school lunch idea or after school snack. My kids are always more willing to eat healthy if they have been part of the cooking process. Plus, this is just so pretty!

  15. What a clever idea! These would be so cute at a shower or party…love them! Thanks for the inspiration… :)

    • Never thought these would be good for a party, but now you gave me an idea! Thanks Samantha!

    • Thank you Debbie, they were very good!

  16. This is such a cute idea, Tanya! I need to eat more fruit. I like fruit, but I’m picky about seeds and peels. Strawberries are fine. Somehow I can tolerate the seeds in those! But apples, peaches and blueberries, I usually don’t eat those raw. They have to be cooked. About the only fruits I like raw are strawberries, pineapple, melons and bananas! Oh and oranges.

    Loving this little recipe. Pinning!

  17. What a super cute post!!! My 10-year -old would love this stuff! He tries to help but… well maybe I’m a kitchen control freak. I should work on that. Also – my name is Heather and I am TOTALLY a fruititarian!!!! I have like 5 kiwis in the fridge and i have to stop myself from eating them all for breakfast.
