Is it really Christmas if you don’t have a full day of feasting, cocktails and desserts prepared? We think not.

Christmas time, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. With a decorated tree adorning the centre of your home, filling the room with the fresh scent of pine, contagious excitement growing as the colourful presents slowly build up around the tree, and the familiar sounds of Michael Bublé coming out of his cave to summon to Christmas cheer alongside Mariah Carey and Sia, there’s only 1 thing left to do before Christmas day is upon us: plan the Christmas feast!

Is it really Christmas if you don’t have a full day of feasting, cocktails and desserts prepared? We think not. Christmas is the one day of the year where it’s completely acceptable to eat your heart out, wearing daggy maternity pants to allow for the extra room, and fall asleep in the pool on your new floaty with a cocktail in hand as the intense midsummer heat sweats out all the extra calories… just to make room for more feasting.

Our Christmas Cheers Recipe Collection is back this year to keep the festive feasting and jolly going right through the holiday season. These recipes will inspire the entertainer within you to put on the most unforgettable table spreads for everyone to gather around and enjoy, but with a wholesome twist. All of our recipes are made from nourishing whole foods and will complement the classic Christmas dishes you know and love. Plus our Christmas cocktails are all completely clean and are spiked with a good dose of nutrition!

For extra fun fiesta feasts around the afternoon siesta, we’ve put a Mexican twist on some of the main dishes! If you want to offer something different to the typical Christmas roast meats, or if you’re vegetarian/vegan, you and your amigos will absolutely love these dishes which do not disappoint on fun, flavour and wholesome nutrition.

Feliz Navidad!
