Sweet Tacos - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

Looking for an after dinner treat that feels a little bit decadent? These Sweet Tacos taste extra-special, but they’re lower in calories than you might expect! We’ve used soft tacos and coated them in a sweet, cinnamon-infused mixture, before baking them in the oven until they’re golden and crunchy.

Using a homemade banana ice cream for the filling helps to keep this recipe so slimming friendly. Smooth and creamy, you won’t feel one bit like you’re missing out – we’ve even mixed some cocoa powder into half of the batch, so you get a hit of chocolatey banana heaven. 

Coating the edges of the tacos in chocolate and a good sprinkling of hundreds and thousands is just what you need to finish them off. They taste even better than they look! For just 253 calories per Sweet Taco, we can’t think of a better way to end a Mexican-inspired meal. 

What diets is this Sweet Tacos recipe suitable for?

This Sweet Tacos recipe is suitable for vegetarians. It can be made gluten free as long as you use gluten free soft tacos. 

To make this recipe suitable for vegans or anyone following a dairy free diet, please substitute the chocolate for a suitable vegan or dairy free alternative.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

Step 2

Roll out 4 pieces of foil the length of your baking tray. Scrunch them loosely into 4 long sausage shapes. Stack 2 on top of each other until you have created 2 sausage shapes that are about 10cm tall. These will be used to shape the taco shells when you bake them in the oven.

Step 3

Add the reduced fat spread to a small bowl and heat in the microwave for a few seconds until melted. Add the cinnamon and sweetener and stir until combined. Using a pastry brush, use the mixture to coat one side of each of the soft tacos.

Step 3 pinchofnom.com Step 3 pinchofnom.com

Step 4

Drape two of the tacos over each foil sausage and bake for 8 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

Step 5

While the taco shells are cooling, heat the chocolate in small bursts in the microwave until melted. Once the taco shells are cool, use a spoon to cover the edges of the taco shells with melted chocolate. Sprinkle over the hundreds and thousands and pop the taco shells in the fridge until the chocolate is set.

Step 6

While the chocolate sets, remove the frozen banana from the freezer. Add to a food processor with the water and blitz until smooth. Split the mixture in half and stir the cocoa powder into one half of the banana ice cream until fully incorporated.
