Many of us have a sweet tooth and love to enjoy dessert after our meals. While most desserts tend to be high in fats, sugars and calories, there are some desserts that we can treat ourselves to that are both nutritious and delicious. What makes this dessert recipe even better is that it can be eaten for breakfast. Try these dessert tacos; serve them at home for dessert or even at your KES Club for breakfast. Using whole grain flour, fresh or frozen fruits and yogurt can provide the students at your KES Club with a filling and nourishing start to their day!
