Gluten Free Christmas Pudding Recipe

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a traditional pudding

But as we know, Northern Beaches people like to do things little different, a bit healthier…. 

These Christmas puddings will only take you 5 minutes. They’re so easy to make and won’t bloat you like traditional versions that have extra cane sugar & added fats.

225g fresh pitted dates
zest from 1 orange
250g organic dried apricots, chopped
150 g (1 ½ cups) almond meal
1  teaspoon vanilla bean extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¼  tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp ground ginger
80 g white chocolate or dark chocolate, melted for decoration (optional)

  1. Combine dates, zest, apricots, vanilla, almond meal, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in a food processor.
  2. Process until mixture is combined and looks like fine crumbs.
    Spoon mixture into a large bowl and add 1 – 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice then mix again. Your pudding mix should come together in the hands when lightly squeezed.
  3. Divide puddings into 6 small puddings. The best way to do this is to line the base of your desired mould with glad wrap and press the pudding mixture into it firmly.
  4. Invert the pudding and remove the glad wrap. Repeat until all the puddings are formed.
  5. Melt Chocolate and drizzle on top, can also top with a cherry, berries, dried orange… Anything you like.

Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks!
