Fake It Till You Bake It

Raspberry and Coconut Sherbet
    When is the last time you had sherbet? You can make this with other fruit but my favorite is raspberry. This is my own version.

    Makes one pint.
2 cups frozen raspberries
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
Pinch salt

    Puree everything in food processor and serve immediately, or place back in freezer briefly. Defrost a few minutes before serving to achieve right texture.

Fruit Crisp
    This recipe is adapted from an old Miraval Resort cookbook.

    Serves six.
4 cups whatever fruit you wish, sweetened with 2 Tbsp. maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup almonds, ground into powder
3/4 cup quinoa flakes
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. cinnamon or whatever spice you like (nutmeg, pumpkin pie, etc.)
3 Tbsp. light olive oil
Pinch salt

    Preheat oven to 400. Place sweetened fruit in shallow baking dish.

    Combine other ingredients (this will be crumbly), sprinkle over fruit, and bake for approximately 20 to 30 minutes until topping is browned and fruit is bubbly.
