How about a healthier alternative to ice cream? Freeze 4 bananas and run them through the blank screen of your juicer or blend in a food processor. Fold in a half a cup of chopped walnuts, a half a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and sweetener of your choice. Top with walnuts and/or shredded coconut. Enjoy without guilt!
An unbelievably delicious salad! Roast 2 bunches of radishes and scallions for 10 minutes. Fold in one pound of cooked chicken, a half cup of chopped almonds, a half cup of chopped mint and 2T of lime juice. Yum!

What are sopes? I had the same question for my friend, Maria, who said she was craving them one day while we were working at the St. Regis. Here’s how she explained this Mexican delicacy: fried masa flour cakes topped with refried beans, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, feta cheese and a special homemade green chili sauce.
Our friend Cherish, who works at The Garden Café at Common Ground, is an amazing baker. She focuses on creating healthy desserts that are either raw, vegan, gluten-free or all of the above. I had to have her over so she could share one of her amazing recipes.
