Healthy White Christmas Slice..

sugarfree, healthy, treat, dessert

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.

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!

Do you have any healthy Christmas recipes for me?

Jingle bells,
