MIAMI GARDENS HEALTHY RETAIL RECIPE CONTEST

 

Starting in the spring of 2020, each month or so we will announce a new key ingredient to commence a recipe contest between Miami Gardens residents. Submitted recipes must contain the key ingredient and must be from a Miami Gardens area resident. Each month we will review recipe submissions and announce a winner who will receive $25 to their local Florida Healthy Corner store to stock up on some food. Then we will announce a new key ingredient for a fresh contest the following month.

 

If you decide to share your recipe on social media, please use the hashtag #healthyretailrecipe in your posts!

Submitted by Nicole Ramsay

"I made this recipe for an iron chef competition at pharmacy school and won first place. The theme was to make healthy snacks. I originally wanted to make a yogurt bark but wanted to be creative when making it. I was feeling homesick while I was at pharmacy school, so I decided to add some Caribbean flare with the original recipe thus the creation of this recipe."
