I’m not going to argue that Christmas pudding is probably one of the perfect traditional post-Christmas dinner desserts; However, it does take hours to make yourself. Of course you always have the option of buying a ready made Christmas pudding which will most likely be full of sugars and additives. I’m not saying you shouldn’t indulge, but if you would prefer a healthier treat that you can make at home in less than 15 minutes, then I’ve got you covered.
Enjoy a delicious cup of warm chocolatey goodness on Christmas morning, and why not make some for your family while at it! Dairy-free, vegan and sugar free so you can enjoy a decadent treat without feeling heavy and bloated afterwards.
Can you believe it’s December tomorrow? Where has this year gone! Perhaps it’s a sign I’m getting old? Or maybe just keeping busy. I would like to think it’s because of the latter haha!
I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of fruit pies, or cooked fruit desserts. I prefer eating my fruit raw and cold; however, rhubarb is one of those fruit (a vegetable, actually!) that you can’t eat any other way apart from cooked…so I thought why not give it a try. It’s so deliciously tart and not too sweet. In fact, I only used 2 tbsp sweetener in the filling and it was just right! Traditional recipes use anywhere between ½ and 1 cup of sugar for the filling alone!
So winter is officially here my belly is feeling rounder and my jeans feel slightly less comfortable to wear, not to mention the dreaded double chin! If like me, you feel you put on weight during these colds months don’t worry…it’s actually very common! On average, we gain between 2-4 pounds in the few months leading up to Christmas and New Year.
Are there any Terry’s Chocolate Orange fans in the house? If you live in the UK, you’ll probably be getting one in your Christmas stocking next month, but for those of you not familiar with Terry’s chocolate orange, it’s an orange flavoured chocolate that’s a festive staple in many UK households. Round in shape with separated segments, just like an orange!
