The holidays are approaching, and although as I always tell you "life is all about balance". A balance of enjoying and trying those typical foods that come from our families, countries, and traditions. It is always good to have a healthy recipe ideas on hand for the holidays that allow us to keep the spirit of these dates while at the same time taking care of what we eat. For this holiday day season I wanted to focus on sweet, simple and practical recipes so as not to take too long in the kitchen and have more time with our guests.
Greek yogurt Christmas tree:
1 and 1/2 cups of Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons of regular honey or agave
Dark chocolate chips
In a bowl add the Greek yogurt and honey , make sure it is mixed very well. Then select a flat, refrigerator-safe container, cover with baking sheet or tin foil. Spread the yogurt and honey mixture evenly throughout the container and decorate it with the toppings of your choice. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
TIP: Remember that the yogurt will not last too long firm once you remove it from the freezer, so you should eat it as soon as it is out.
2FIT Christmas Protein Cookies:
6 2FIT Protein Bars Vanilla Crunch
Melts dark chocolate
Remove the protein bars from the packaging and put them in a microwave-safe dish, leave them in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds (time may vary on the microwave). Make sure the bars become soft, they should not burn or change color. Make sure not to burn yourself (the bars will be very hot, so be careful), combine all the bars until they are in a single dough, later you will divide the dough into small balls and begin to assemble the cookies. Put them in the air fryer or in the oven for about 6 minutes, the cookies should be firm, you should check them constantly as they could burn easily. When they have the desired texture, let the cookies rest until they are cold, meanwhile melt the chocolate. Cover the cookies with the chocolate and put them in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Christmas Jelly: (for 2 glasses)
½ envelope of red gelatin (cherry flavor, red berries)
½ envelope of green gelatin (apple, lemon flavor)
1 small bag of unflavored gelatin
1/3 Cup of Condensed milk
Whipped cream (regular, coconut or almond)
Mix half an envelope of red gelatin in ½ cup of hot water, add ¼ of an envelope of flavored gelatin and ½ cup of cold water, let it rest. Once the mixture is cold add to the glasses in equal parts and take to the refrigerator until it is firm. Once firm, mix half of our condensed milk with ¼ small bag of unflavored gelatin and add in equal parts to the glasses. Return to the fridge until firm. Mix half an envelope of green gelatin in ½ cup of hot water, add ¼ of an envelope of flavored gelatin and ½ cup of cold water, let it rest, once the mixture is cold, add to the glasses in equal parts and put in the fridge until it is firm. Once firm, mix half of our condensed milk with ¼ sachet of unflavored gelatin and add in equal parts to the glasses. Return to the fridge until firm. Once this is done, decorate with whipped cream.
Not your regular brownies:
For this recipe we are going to turn your favorite brownies into Christmas hats over some delicious snow.
Your favorite brownies (can be homemade or bought)
Cheese cream (without salt) or a whipped topping of your choice (traditional or vegan ones)
Make sure your brownies are small or you can cut them yourself! Depending on how sweet you like them, add the amount of stevia that you consider necessary to the cheesee cream and beat very well in a bowl.
Add the mixture on top of each brownie evenly, cut the strawberries in the shape of a hat and put them on top of the cream, finally add a point of mixture of the cream on top of the strawberry.
