Cinnamon Sugar Oranges: #19 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

This is our take on a traditional dessert you could find in Morocco. We tried it out as an after-school snack today, and it was a big hit! Clementine oranges are in season now, and cinnamon sugar is always a favorite around here. What’s not to love?

This is part of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and hopefully yours.

Ingredients ($0.52 total)

2 clementines – $0.40
1 tbsp sugar – $0.06
1 tsp cinnamon – $0.06


1. Peel and separate the clementines into any pattern you like.

2. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together.

3. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the oranges and enjoy!
