Fruit salsa is one of my favorite summer snacks. The tangy and sweet combo is such a refreshing treat! I made this for my mom for Mother’s Day and she loved it. Here is the recipe so you can surprise YOUR mom with a tasty and (kind of) healthy dessert.

Ingredients for cinnamon chips:

  • 10 flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Ingredients for salsa:

  • 2 apples
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup chopped kiwi
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • ½ pound raspberries
  • 4 tablespoons raspberry preserves

For the cinnamon chips, spray each tortilla with cooking spray on both sides, then sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over both sides. Cut the tortillas into slices with a pizza cutter, then place them on a baking sheet for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. For the fruit salsa, first, finely chop the apple and add the lemon juice to it. Mix. Finely chop the strawberries and kiwi, then the raspberries. Add all ingredients to the apples and combine. Then add in the raspberry preserves and mix. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes, then serve!

The cinnamon chips give this recipe a delicious sugary addition! It is a time-consuming process to make this salsa and the chips to eat it with, but it is so worth it in the end.

XOXO, Chels

Just a friendly reminder…MOTHER’S DAY IS COMING SOON! And if you are like me and have a super awesome momma, you want to get her something she will adore! The great thing about moms is that they love almost anything that their children get for them! They especially love gifts made by their children! Here are 3 DIY Mother’s Day gifts that your madre is sure to love.

  1. Dry erase magnetic to-do list: moms always have a million and one things to do. My mom has lists all over the place, telling her what she needs to buy at the store, what time our sports practices are, what she needs to get done for the day, all that jazz! This magnetic dry erase list is perfect because she can erase everything she has gotten done so she just sees what she needs to do! All you need is a cheap picture frame, some cute paper, magnets, and a dry erase marker! Attach the magnets to the back of the frame with some glue, put the cute paper into the frame, and you are done! She can write all of her to-dos on the glass of the frame.
  2. Ombre wooden spoons: If your momma likes to cook, then she will love this idea! Go out and buy a set of woodenchelsea crockett wooden spoons spoons and paint the handles different shades of her favorite color.
  3. Colorful spray painted cans: Your momma can store pens, pencils, utensils, anything she wants in these chic cans! Put a bow around them and fill them with her favorite candy when you give them to her! She can even plant her favorite flowers in them!

Shoe your momma how much you love her with these sweet DIY gifts!

XOXO, Chels
