1 tsp. Vanilla extract
2 drops mint extract
75 g Agave Syrup

1 - 2 Bananas, sliced

  • Saok the almonds for the crust overnight and blend with the crust ingredients for 1 min/speed 5

  • Fill the crust with banana slices and press them in with a fork
  • Blend the ingredients for the filling 1 min/speed 5
  • Fill cup cakes with a pastry bag and chill at least 1 hour before serving

Red Beet & Carrot Salad

This simple salad is a favourite in our house. It can be made ahead to marinate and blend the flavours. The lemon juice and olive oil help to break down the veggies for easier digestibility. My root vegetables are grown at Whole Circle Farm or from Pfenning's Organic


500 g root vegetables ( carrots & beets)
1 small apple
20g apple cider vinegar
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
20 g olive oil (or half flax seed oil)
celtic sea salt & pepper
fresh dill weed or parsley


  • Place all ingredients in TM bowl and chop 5-7 sec/speed 5

Optional addition: add 1 clove garlic, 1 tsp. mustard or ginger

Makes 4 cups
