How Sweet it is to Dip You in Guac – Serves 2-3
Heat grill to low-medium. Place sliced sweet potatoes on aluminum foil and brush coconut oil on each sweet potato and sprinkle with salt. Place on grill to let cook and flip them after about 8-10 minutes, keep a close watch to ensure you don’t burn the chips!
Heat up a large skillet under medium heat and coat the coconut oil at the bottom on the pan. Once oil is very hot, add plantains and let cook for 3-5 minutes per side. Once they are cooked brown on both sides place on a paper towel and soak oil.

Because it isn’t a holiday without dessert – Makes 3
For the crust – Mix dates, raisins, figs in blender or food processor and pulse until everything is in small pieces that stick together – let it get to a crust-like consistency and watch that it doesn’t get too sticky. Press into three lined tart tins and refrigerate.
For the filling – Mush the bananas with a fork and add the chia seeds.
For the topping – Take the crusts gently out of the tins. Spread the banana chia mix into the crusts and top off with blueberries, strawberries, kiwis and any other toppings.
