Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips {Low-Sugar}

We'd love for you to share!

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips is always a party hit! We cut down on the refined sugar in this recipe…and nobody could tell the difference!

You may have enjoyed this fresh and fruity appetizer at a Pampered Chef or Tupperware party. It’s very popular for Mother’s Day too!

In our version, blueberries, apples, strawberries, and kiwi fruit are lightly glazed with a jam and stevia glaze and served on homemade tortilla chips that are sweetened with a stevia/cinnamon mixture. 

Could you use regular sugar instead? Absolutely. But, I was wearing my sneaky, healthy mom hat (not to mention I was going for low WW points.) You have all the control over how much sugar is used. 

Not sure your peeps want to cut back? Then, just replace part of the sugar with stevia…every little bit makes a difference. You can hop down to the full recipe at the end of the post, watch the video or see the step-by-step details below.

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips Step-by-Step

The key to making this mixture salsa-like is cutting the fruit into very small pieces and making it saucy!

Use nice, crisp apples to extend the life of the salsa. We’re big fans of Ambrosia apples because they don’t brown in recipes like Healthy Apple Nachos

Finely dice the strawberries too.

Next, prepare the kiwi.

Here’s a neat trick for easily peeling this delectable little tropical fruit.

Cut each end off the kiwi fruit. Slip a spoon between the skin of the kiwi and the flesh and slide it all around the edge.

I did this very gingerly. But, it was very easy to do.

Like magic, the peeled kiwi fruit will drop from the skin. Dice it in small pieces too.

Stir all the diced fruit together in a big bowl and fold in the blueberries.

To make the glaze, combine equal amounts of jam and stevia baking blend. I used Smucker’s Strawberry Simply Fruit and Zing Stevia Blend.  Or, make your own sugar-free version like this Sugar Free Chia Jam by Ditch the Carbs.

The salsa will become juicier over time, so start with a smallish amount of sauce.

Types of Fruit to Use in Salsa

Make your favorite blend! The following fruits are easily diced into small pieces:

  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi
  • Blueberries
  • Pineapple
  • Grapes (cut into fourths)
  • Raspberries
  • Cherries (remove pits and can be messy)
  • Mango
  • Melons

How to Make Homemade Cinnamon Chips from Tortillas

Fruit salsa with cinnamon chips is a perfect pairing. There’s no need to buy a bag when they are so easy to make! Plus, our version uses whole wheat flour tortillas and less sugar too!

To make the chips, brush or spray flour tortillas with melted butter. We use a vegan substitute to keep the chips dairy-free.

Combine 1/4 cup of a bakeable stevia blend with 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon mixture over the tortillas.

Next, cut the tortillas into wedges (a pizza cutter makes quick work of this task.) Bake them in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven until crisp, about 8 – 9 minutes.

  1. Made this for a baby shower with pineapple instead of kiwi! Went very quickly because everyone knew that I was careful with the sugar and used whole wheat flour tortillas. Sorry there were no leftovers for later.
