Healthy Christmas Dessert Recipe

Healthy Christmas

For a scrumptious, guilt-free alternative to Christmas pudding try this compote:

Poach pears, (unsulphured) apricots, large raisins, or naturally dried cherries with cinnamon or mixed spice, and a slice of gluten free bread (optional) in 16 fl oz red wine, and a little red grape juice.

Leave to cool and then chill.

Mix in toasted flaked almonds and serve with a spoon of greek yoghurt or marscapone (optional) sprinkled with grated chocolate and nutmeg, topped of course with a spring of holly.

The compote (without the yoghurt) will keep for up to 5 days.

Serves 2
