10 Christmas No Junk Recipes
Here are 10 easy Christmas recipes you can make with help from your little ones. From a great alternative mulled wine and chocolate truffles to warm up your Christmas parties to cheese straw canes and Christmas biscuits to give out as gifts or to hang on your tree. They are not all super healthy, but being homemade you can be sure they are junk free. Enjoy!
1. Christmas Chestnut Houmous
2. Chocolate Truffle Christmas Puddings
Kids can easily make these delicious Chocolate Truffle Christmas Puddings with you. They are also a great way to use up leftover or stale cake, which can be frozen and defrosted when needed for this recipe.
3. Cheese Straw Christmas Canes
4. Almond Topped Filo Mince Pies
These Almond Topped Filo Mince Pies are so easy to make and have around half the calories of a regular mince pie. Kids can help cutting filo pastry and layering it up to make star shapes as well as mixing and filling.
5. Mulled Grape Juice
6. Christmas Pudding Fudge
7. Candy Cane Rocky Road
8. Cranberry and Orange Christmas Biscuits
9. Christmas Granola
10. Christmas Turkey Burgers & Parsnip Chips
I like to think of Christmas Turkey Burgers with Parsnip Chips as a sort of Christmas dinner in fast food form! These homemade turkey burgers are full of festive flavours, super healthy and delicious. The parsnip chips make a lovely change as well.
