It’s that time of year again when I need to Christmassy-up our nutrition plans but keep our people super healthy! We already have our cult Christmas porridge recipe but I wanted a lower carb option with a Greek yoghurt vibe. I came up with this beautiful thing; crikey it’s so delicious. You could also serve it as a lighter Christmas day pud.

In a small pan, heat the butter, vanilla, honey and spice (if using), until melted and combined. Now add the orange and lemon juice and heat it all so it bubbles a but, reduces and thickens a little. Now it’s time to add the fruit; give it a stir so it gets coated in the zesty sticky juice and keep heating it ’til it plumps up – just a min or two.
Mix the yoghurt and creme fraiche together and spoon the mixture into a good-looking bowl (we eat with our eyes first!). Pour on the fruity juicy mix and top with the nuts and seeds.
Yoghurt gives a good hit of calcium as well as B12 for DNA production, cardiovascular protection and a well-functioning brain and nervous system.
Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.
