Tropical Fruit Nachos

Do you need a tropical vacation? These fun, fresh, nutrient-loaded Tropical Fruit “Nachos” will bring the tropics right to your kitchen. This colorful dish can serve as breakfast, an unexpected addition to brunch, or even a nourishing dessert, and will be a sure way to get kids more interested in fruit. There are no chips involved here. Rather, fresh tropical fruit replaces chips to act as the nacho base, a drizzle of coconut cream replaces the usual nacho cheese, and crumbled OHi Wholesome Bars and other breakfast-appropriate ingredients replace the traditional nacho toppings. Bonus: this dish is packed with immune-boosting Vitamin C thanks to all the fruit! It’s a great opportunity to experiment with new fruits that you may not have tried before, and will work with any tropical fruit you can get your hands on.


Ingredients

  • Assortment of whatever tropical fruit you love (Shown here: pineapple, mango, papaya, bananas, passionfruit, traditional grapefruit, baby grapefruit, starfruit, kumquats, and rambutan)
  • Few dollops of your favorite yogurt
  • Drizzle of coconut cream (Note: this is the solid, luscious, white fat that separates from a can of coconut milk and floats to the top. You can also just buy cans of coconut cream. Spoon it out of the can, give it a good stir, and thin it out with a dash of the clear coconut milk at the bottom of the can if needed)
  • Two Coconut Macadamia OHi Wholesome Bars
  • Handful of unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Handful of macadamia nuts
  • Small handful of mini chocolate chips
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

Directions

  1. Cut up your tropical fruit into bite-sized or easy-to-handle pieces and lay it out on a platter.
  2. Add a few dollops of yogurt around the platter.
  3. Give the whole thing a generous drizzle of coconut cream.
  4. Crumble up the two OHi Wholesome Bars and scatter the crumbles across the top.
  5. Finish it off with coconut flakes, macadamia nuts, chocolate chips, and cinnamon.

Customize Them

  • Make them vegan by using vegan yogurt and chocolate chips.
  • Keep them free of added sugar by omitting the chocolate chips.
  • Increase the protein by using more yogurt, more OHi Wholesome Bars, and/or drizzling the nachos with almond butter instead of coconut cream.
  • Use any breakfast-appropriate toppings you love including other nuts, seeds, warming spices, or small pieces of crystallized ginger.
  • Take them over the top by adding a scoop of vanilla or coconut ice cream in the middle.
  • Switch up the flavor profile by using a different kind of OHi Wholesome Bar, or two different OHi Wholesome Bars together.
