Iheartscratch White Christmas is a traditional Christmas treat that is fun to make with kids and great to give as gifts to neighbours and teachers but some of the ingredients in traditional White Christmas might have us thinking twice. Copha, icing sugar and dried milk powder are ingredients you might want to avoid so here is a great Supefood White Christmas recipe that can even be made into grain-free or nut-free versions so everyone will be filled with Christmas cheer.
- – 250g raw cacao butter, melted
- – 250g coconut oil, melted
- – 2 cups puffed GF grain: eg. puffed brown rice, puffed quinoa or puffed amaranth
- – 1 cup desiccated coconut
- – 1 cup mixed dried berries e.g. no-added sugar cranberries, sour cherries and/or goji berries
- – 1 cup sultanas
- – 1 cup flaked or slithered almonds, toasted**
- – 1 tsp vanilla powder
- – 1 tsp ground ginger
- Grain-free version
- – Swap the 2 cups of puffed grain for 2 cups of flaked or shredded coconut.
- Nut-free version
- – Swap the 1 cup of almonds for 1 cup of flaked or shredded coconut.
1) Melt the raw cacao butter like you would chocolate, in double boiler (in a bowl, set atop of a saucepan of simmering water) and mix the coconut oil through once melted. 2) Place the almonds in a dry frying pan over medium heat, stirring regularly for a couple of minutes until lightly golden. 3) Line a 20 x 30cm baking tin with baking paper and set aside. 4) Once the raw cacao butter and coconut oil are melted and the almonds are toasted, combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, stirring to combine. 5) Pour the mixture into the cake tin, spreading it evenly, into the corners, flattening the surface. 6) Freeze for 30 minutes, or until set. 7) Once solidified, slice into 20 squares. 8) Enjoy your Superfood White Christmas!
