The Best Christmas Recipes To Enjoy This Year

It's the most wonderful time of the year - but you know what really makes Christmas extra special and extra wonderful, the food!

So, on that note, we thought we'd treat you to some delicious, festive and healthy alternative recipes which we guarantee will be a new Christmas tradition.

1. Prosciutto and Mozzarella Sticks

1. Take your basil leaves and mozzarella balls and stick a cocktail stick through them both.
2. Wrap the other side of the basil leaf over the mozzarella balls.
3. Cutting the Prosciutto Ham in half width ways, fold this up into bit size pieces and add to the end of the cocktail stick.

We've served these with our delicious Zero Calorie Garlic Mayo as an amazing dip. These are only 44 calories per stick! These also contain only 0.4 grams of carbs, 3.3grams of fat and 3.7 grams of protein!

4. Mini Mince Pie Bites

Ingredients

1 sheet light puff pastry 

180g light soft cream cheese 

50ml SFC Mince Pie Syrup

90g mincemeat

Method

1. Slice your sheet of pastry into 18 equal squares.

2. Spray the tin with oil (we’ve used our Sunflower Oil Spray!) Add these squares into a muffin tin - one square per cup.

3. Add the light cream cheese to a mixing bowl and use the Skinny Food Co sugar free Mince Pie Syrup and mix!

4. Add a spoonful of this mixture into each pastry square and top with the mincemeat.

5. Cook for 25 minutes on a 200 degree heat. 

This is such a great twist on a classic mince pie - a lighter, less calorific version. We just couldn’t say no to second helpings here at Skinny Food HQ!

These light treats contain only 88 calories per bite, along with 11.8 grams of carbs, 3.6 grams of fat and 2.2 grams of protein!

  3. Place the other half of the light puff pastry over the top and using a pizza cutter, or a knife, cut into 14 equal strips. 
  4. Holding a strip on both ends, twist them.
