Raw Christmas Pudding

  • Ingredients
  • 100g dried apricots
  • 250g pitted dates
  • 100g raisins
  • 60g dried sour cherries
  • 2 tbsp orange zest
  • 60g flaxseed meal
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 100g raw cacao butter for frosting

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor (apart from orange juice and coconut oil). Place in a mixing bowl and add the orange juice and coconut oil, mix well together. Put in a required size bowl or mould and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes. For frosting place cacao butter in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and stir until melted. Remove from the heat and cool to thicken the frosting, spoon over the pudding, decorate with desiccated coconut and fresh cranberries and refrigerate for about 15 minutes.

nuts

Welcome also NUTS this season, not only to include them in your pudding but to enjoy them as a snack.  Nuts are packed with protein, fibre and very valuable essential fats; become friends! Remember to soak them first to remove nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances and help your body to metabolise them better. Slightly roasted will provide you with real joy and let you experience the magic of Christmas!

I wish you beautiful Christmas and wonderful magic and love in your heart!
