Festive fruit & nut slices

Fruity ice lollies

These homemade ice lollies are great thirst quenchers and have no added sugar. I’ve made three varieties – kiwi and chia, banana and cashew, and strawberry and mint.

Festive fruit & nut slices

Festive fruit & nut slices

These slices are packed with delicious dried fruit and nuts, and are gluten- and dairy-free. Dried fruit is relatively high in natural sugars, and so this is definitely a sweet treat, but with all the additional nutritional benefits of the fruit and nuts it’s one to enjoy and savour over the Christmas period!

Date and walnut truffles

Date and walnut truffles

These truffles are a delicious lunchbox treat! And they come with the added bonus that walnuts are high in antioxidants and are a source of omega-3 fatty acids. Dates provide dietary fibre and potassium.

Tofu, Chia and Berry Pudding by Stephanie Daniels Nutrition

Tofu, Chia and Berry Pudding

This is a great option if you’re looking for a quick and healthy week-day dessert. Tofu is a good source of protein, calcium and iron and combines to make a creamy pudding with the chia seeds (a good source of fibre plus protein and calcium) and berries (great for providing antioxidants). You can use fresh or frozen berries in this recipe.
