Fruit-based puddings are popular around Christmas time. Although Christmas pudding is popular, there is more to life than traditional fruitcake, and here we present a number of options. Many of the recipes below are gluten-free and reduced-sugar, and all of them are highly fruity! Dried fruits are particularly popular at this time of year: apricots, vine fruit, prunes, dried berries and much more!
This easy-to-make Christmas pudding combines mixed vine fruit, figs, apricots, prunes and citrus peel in a traditional manner, but one that is suitable for those on a gluten-free diet. We sweetened this pudding with Xylitol, though you can easily switch to coconut sugar, molasses or syrup for a great alternative to refined cane sugar.
If you cannot obtain fresh berries at this time of year, you can use freeze-dried mixed berries in this fruit compote: they are bursting with flavour and taste exactly the same as the fresh ones! Gluten-free and low-GI.
Mega-fruity mince pies with apricots, cranberries, physalis, sultanas, raisins, prunes, mixed cherries and loads of nuts! There is a gluten-free option with chestnut flour, as well as a traditional one.
