I am the first to admit to over-eating at Christmas. There is always so much food around and it always tastes soooo good.
Trifle is one of my absolute favourite things to eat at Christmas time. But most trifles are laden with sherry and sugar and aren’t so good for little kiddie tummies or our adult waistlines.
This is my healthier version of trifle that is sugar-free, kid-friendly and tastes DELISH.
I love the smell of gingerbread. There’s something about it that just instantly makes me think of Christmas. These egg-free, sugar-free gingerbread cookies are a great healthy alternative this festive season to the normal ones that are packed with sugar. Plus you’ll feel a whole lot better about scoffing down several of them because they’re healthier for you than the normal kind.
They’ve got just the right amount of crunch and you can adjust the amount of ginger to suit your taste.
My mother-in-law makes the best rum balls you could ever dream of. They’re so soft and delicious I can never stop at one and I always look forward to Christmas time because I know I’ll get a big batch. I remember being so disappointed the Christmas I was pregnant with Molly because I couldn’t eat any and had to watch on with jealousy as the rest of the family devoured them.
These are a great non-alcoholic alternative to rum balls and have the perfect amount of spice to get you into the Christmas spirit. They’re great for kids, pregnant women and anyone with a stomach really.
They’re super easy to make and are a great healthy snack option over the holiday period.
They also are a fabulous snack option all year round.
It’s Christmas and we all tend to be guilty of overeating during the holidays. Especially with the enormous amount of functions that you get invited to.
These strawberry Santas are not only super cute but they’re healthy too so you won’t feel so bad eating them at your next Christmas function.
They’re also really quick and easy to whip up and contain no sugar. The filling is just cream cheese, butter and no-added sugar 100% fruit jam.
I know what you’re thinking… “why would I make my own dip when I can just buy it?”. Well, for starters this one tastes DELICIOUS and secondly you’d be surprised with just how much sugar and salt is actually hidden in supermarket dips.
This one is salt and sugar-free so is great for the whole family from your biggest to littlest member. It’s also a great food to try when your baby is relatively new to solids as it is soft and smooth enough that they can easily eat it.
AND it’s easy to make. The longest part of this recipe is the roasting of the eggplant. The rest is chop and chuck in the food processor.
