We’re making lettuce wraps today and they’re one of the most flavorful recipes I’ve ever made. Not only are these fajitas easy to make, they’re topped with an incredible Avocado Crema using Elmhurst Unsweetened Hazelnut Milk.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…hazelnut milk in fajitas?
The only ingredients in this non-dairy milk are filtered water and hazelnuts. Talk about a clean product! I cannot stop drinking it and making recipes with it, as well, which brings me to today’s delicious recipe.

How to Make Fajita Lettuce Wraps
You know I’m all about 3 simple steps for every recipe, so here they are:
Step 1: Saute a diced white onion with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini and carrots, saute until tender, then add cinnamon, cumin, salt, and pepper.
Step 2: Remove from heat and spoon into lettuce leaves. Add grape tomatoes, red bell pepper, walnuts, and parsley.
Step 3: Make the avocado crema with ripe avocados and Elmhurst Unsweetened Hazelnut Milk in a mini food processor, dollop on top of the lettuce fajitas and serve.
Let me talk to you for a minute about this non-dairy milk. It’s by far the best brand I’ve ever tried and the best part is that their clean process doesn’t use stabilizers or gums like carrageenan, locust bean or xanthan gum. They’re all about creating a “whole foods” drink with a creamy texture by extracting the nutritional benefit of nuts in a clean form (without any junk added).
This, my friends, is my kinda brand. I wish every food and beverage brand cared as much as they do about the quality and taste of their products without adding inflammatory ingredients that make so many of our belly’s hurt! I know you feel the same way.
Elmhurst sells everything from almond milk to oat milk to cashew milk to walnut milk and more (check out all of their products here). I highly suggest you check out their super clean products!
Because I love these products so much, I want to give you the opportunity to try them. If you’d like to order from the Elmhurst website, use the code: HEALTHYAPPLE518 for 15% off your order.
You can buy these milks online and in select stores (click here to find a store near you).

Simple fajitas that taste fabulous.
If you want a kick of hotness, feel free to add chili powder, crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to the skillet when the other spices are added.
