Nutritional information

By Jean Hailes naturopath and herbalist Sandra Villella

At this time of year, we are often surrounded by extra "sometimes" food. While it's usually tasty, it's also usually low in the nutrition stakes.

This recipe is our Christmas gift to you!

These raw white Christmas balls are packed with raw wholefood ingredients: seeds, nuts and the festive red and green of cranberries and pepitas. They provide the desired sweetness, but are more sustaining as well as easy and quick to make.

Happy Christmas!
