Whether you are a grinch or a Christmas die hard, its hard to argue against some good Christmas recipes. Because 'tis the season for food.
Whilst I am all for indulging in your not-so healthy Christmas faves (because Christmas only comes around once a year), the post too much turkey and Christmas cake bloat isn't the best feeling. So here are some of my fave recipes that are just as tasty as your faves but come with less bloat-factor.
Cacao and Peppermint Trifle
This is not your average trifle that nan brings to Christmas lunch. With chocolate and peppermint it's like a candy cane and chocolate ice cream mixed together in the best way possible.
Leftover Turkery and Stuffing Salad
There always seems to be some sort of leftovers hanging around after Christmas day lunch, so why not throw it together in this delish salad for the gift that keeps on giving.
Feta and Watermelon Rounds
Now for us southern-hemispherians Christmas comes around smack back in the middle of summer. So these feta and watermelon rounds are the perfect cool-as canape for your Christmas barbeques.
4 Ingredient Paleo Cookies
Whether you need some cookies for Santa or just for yourself, these paleo cookies have got you covered.
Cinnamon Breakfast Smoothie
Nothing screams Christmas to me more than cinnamon. These warm breakfast smoothies are perfect for those enjoying a white Christmas otherwise they are just as delish cold.
Spiced Prawn Skewers
These spiced prawn skewers are perfect for those balmy Christmas day barbeques. A little less traditional but just as delicious.
