Tasty Tuesday: Mexican Fruit Stand

In honor of Cinco De Mayo, we thought we’d share one of our favorite all-time snacks! As you might know, Minty Jungle is based out of the concrete jungle of Los Angeles, so everywhere we look, we’re sure to find colorful displays of food that makes our tummies smile. One of the best things you’ll find in Downtown LA is the crazy amounts of Mexican fruit stands. It’s so common to walk down the street on a hot sunny day and notice a bunch of fresh fruits staring at you in the face screaming, “Buy me!” It’s quite hard to resist when the vendor has a charming smile on his face and motions you over to the stand. Sweet salvation all while being healthy? Yes, please!

Have you guys ever heard of Tajin Fruit Seasoning? You’ll often come across it at any fruit stand you pass. Here’s what it looks like sprinkled over some tasty treats:

With warmer days ahead, this makes for the perfect summer snack with a spicy kick! If you guys haven’t tried this delicious treat yet, don’t wave that vendor off next time. Or better yet, cut up your own fruits and veggies at home and throw on some Tajin! You can thank us later ;) Happy snacking! ^.^
