Christmas is coming! And the best news is, all your favourite dishes can be made in a healthy way without sacrificing the sensational flavours.
I have tasted the traditional White Christmas slice in the past and while it looked fantastic, one piece and I had an immediate headache and felt instantly tired like sugar tends to do to me. Not to mention wanting to eat the whole batch despite the pain!
So I whipped up a Slim Birdy original and oh my, tastes like the most amazing white chocolate without the hangover! Add this one to your Christmas cooking list…
Healthy White Christmas
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 cups of macadamia nuts
½ cup saltanas
½ cup goji berries
½ cup pistachio nuts
½ cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Whiz macadamias first in food processor until smooth and all sticks together – about 5 mins.
Throw in everything else except the nuts and fruit and whiz for another 5 mins.
Add nuts and fruit at the end and pulse twice just to mix through but not grind everything up.
Press into a paper lined tin and chill in the fridge. Cut into squares when firm.
Makes quite a bit, so if you are expecting a full house then great, otherwise you will be eating a piece a day for quite a few weeks!
