White Christmas is one of those traditional foods that only makes an appearance once a year! To be honest, I wasn’t really ever a fan.
Sickly sweet with an oily copha taste….. hmmm…….
My daughter and I experimented yesterday and come up with something a bit healthier and a whole lot yummier.
I’m dreaming of a (healthy) White Christmas!
**vegetarian, gluten-free, egg-free, additive-free, thermomix**
Okay, so this is what you need:
2 cups organic brown rice puffs
1 cup organic dried cranberries
1 cup organic, raw, unsalted pistachios
1 cup organic coconut flakes
200g Green and Blacks organic white chocolate
200g organic, virgin coconut oil
Okay, so this is how you do it:
Chuck your white chocolate and coconut oil into the thermomix. Melt on 50 degrees, 1 minute, speed 1.
Throw in the rest of your ingredients and mix, reverse, speed 1 for about 20 seconds.
Pour into a baking paper lined small tray (or you could fling into muffin cases).
Whack into the freezer or fridge until firm and set.
It must be stored in the fridge – it will melt quickly, particularly in this weather. The freezer is better!
*If you don’t have a thermomix – melt the chocolate and coconut oil together in a saucepan and pour over other ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
*I don’t add any sugar or sweetener as the chocolate and craisins make it sweet enough. But try it and add some if you want to.
*Use any combination of fruit and nuts you like – I just think cranberries and pistachios are so Christmasy!
*If you love chocolate, try making my really healthy chocolate crackle recipe into a slice with some craisins and pistachios!
Do you like White Christmas? Would you make this?
