You know it’s important to eat healthy without sacrificing flavor, but you also don’t have all day to prepare a meal. That’s why we teamed up with Jasmine from Sweet Simple Vegan to bring you this simple Sweet Summer Fruit Spring Roll recipe. Using only a handful of whole food ingredients, she whipped up this summer treat for you to enjoy!
Peanut Butter Pitaya Dipping Sauce:
- 2 tbsp powdered peanut butter (or about 1 1/3 tbsp peanut butter)
- 1/2 frozen pitaya packet (or about 1.25 oz pitaya), thawed
- 1 medjool date
- 1 tbsp orange juice
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
Blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor until smooth.
Summer Fruit Rolls:
- 1 large mango, sliced into strips
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 Persian cucumber, cut into matchsticks
- 1 gala apple, cut into matchsticks
- 6-8 strawberries, sliced with greens removed
- Wide bowl or deep plate + warm water
- Slice the ingredients into long and thin strips, at about the same length for uniformity if possible.
- Remove the rice paper from the packaging. Immerse the paper into a bowl of warm water for 8-10 seconds. Remove and place on dry plate or cutting board.
- Fill your rolls with the strawberries, then spinach, and then the remaining ingredients. Try not to overstuff, as it will be more difficult to roll. Once you roll your first summer roll, you will be able to gauge how much or how little filling you will need.
- When rolling it up, think mini burrito! The end of the roll will seal on its own.
- Slice the rolls in half (if desired) and serve with dipping sauce.
