Fruit and Yogurt Burrito

Some time ago, I was trying to figure out something new for dinner.  Since, my husband and I typically eat huge meals in the evenings, I knew it needed to be something light but filling.  I had a hankering for something with strawberries and all of the sudden the idea of a fruit burrito came to mind. 
As I pondered what all to put in the burrito, I decided Marscapone cheese should be in there (even though I'd never actually tried it before ;-).  I also thought Yogurt could be kind of like a "sauce" to help bring everything together.  Then I needed a fruit combination...my two favorite combos are strawberries, mandarin oranges and bananas; or strawberries, blueberries and bananas.  Finally, I decided a little "crunch" wouldn't hurt so I added some French Vanilla Granola and wrapped it all in a giant flour tortilla.  Not only is this delicious but it's very filling and satisfying too!
This is one of those meals that would be perfect any time of day, especially when you don't want to have to heat up the kitchen by turning on the stove or the oven.  Hope you enjoy this recipe! :-)
