Spring rolls might traditionally be a savory food — but this sweet recipe is about to change that for good.

Fruit spring rolls are a genius way of satisfying your sweet tooth craving while remaining healthy in your cooking pursuits.

They’re also extraordinarily refreshing and leave you with a certain amount of creativity, being that you’re able to fill these treats up with just about any type of fruit.

In fact, I’m sure any fruit or garnish you’re craving would work, as long as the slices you cut are well-proportioned.

Although this recipe doesn’t involve any cooking per se, it does require ample prep time to get these rolls looking as beautiful as can be.

In an exclusive video below, we put a unique twist on the term “spring roll,” which usually comes fried in oil and stuffed with vegetables and sometimes seafood or meat.

This recipe, however, doesn’t include any frying whatsoever and is only filled with fruit and mint leaves.
