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

This Mulled Grape Juice from eat like you love yourself is a wonderful alternative for mulled wine at Christmas, and it looks just like the real thing. I'm not so keen on soft drinks so I'll be brewing mulled grape juice when it's my turn to drive.

6. Christmas Pudding Fudge

I love this Christmas Granola from Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary - a Christmas twist on an everyday staple which is also super healthy too. How beautiful does it look in these jars with a bow on? Kids can also help as it's so easy to make.

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.
