words by Saskia GregsonWilliams

I love Christmas Day! I love the way it brings my family and friends together. The celebrations and christmas stockings are just the start before we all sit down to an indulgent christmas feast. For us foodies in particular, planning the ultimate christmas lunch is very important; that’s why I’ve come up with the ultimate Hip & Healthy Christmas menu! Both totally delicious and amazingly nourishing! Merry Christmas indeed… Enjoy!

And for dessert, the most delicious mini christmas puddings with a faux ‘white chocolate’ drizzle. No bake so its super simple to make, sweet and indulgent whilst bursting with nutrients! Dairy-, sugar-, gluten- and wheat-free, these mini raw cakes are too good to be true! Click here for recipe.
