If you love Christmas pudding like me you’re going to love these! Although I’m not really a fan of heavy Christmas food, Christmas pudding is one of those tradional celebration dishes I absolutely love and look forward to.
Of course it’s usually oozing with brandy or rum and traditionally suet but mine is a healthier raw vegan version with lovely juicy soaked fruits, ground almonds, lots of festive spices and orange juice for a lighter feel (but no less special).All topped off with some creamy coconut cream and popping jewels of pomegranate. Amazing.
These delicious little puds are packed with juicy Christmas fruit; dates, figs, goji berries, apricots, cranberries and raisins. Then mixed with a warming and aromatic combination of spices; cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves and lots of fresh ginger.
Plus the puddings couldn’t be easier to make, all you need to do is soak the fruit for a few hours until they get nice and juicy, squeeze out the excess liquid and blitz to a chunky paste then mix with the dry ingredients (plus a few extras for texture).
They then need a few hrs to chill and firm up in the fridge but after that you can eat with some coconut cream and bursting pomegranates like I have here, or keep it in the fridge for a few days for the flavours to meld together and develop further.
I also think these yummy little puds would be amazing with some quick banana icecream and vanilla.
If you make these I would love to hear what you think and if you love them as much as I do.
