Strawberry Santa Recipe

Strawberry Santa Recipe!

If you are looking for a healthy treat to serve on Christmas, look no further — Strawberry Santa Recipe that is sure to tickle your fancy!

These little guys are both appropriately dressed and deliciously healthy!

500g strawberries, base sliced evenly (level cuts ensure that the little Santas can stand upright)
1 large banana, sliced into thin discs.
1 can coconut cream: chilled in the fridge for 1-3 days beforehand
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
You can use an edible gel pen to add eyes, but they’re cute either way!

1 Open the can of coconut cream, being careful not to turn it over. Gently scoop out the solidified cream, separating the coconut water into a chilled bowl (you can use the water later in your morning smoothie).
2 Add the vanilla and maple syrup to the coconut cream.
3 Using hand beaters or a standing mixer, whip the coconut cream on high speed until soft peaks form.
4 Set aside the cream for a moment (it’s a good idea to place it back into the fridge while you cut the fruit).
5 Slice a disc off the end of each strawberry, about 3⁄4 of the way down from the tip.
6 Using a butter knife (or pallet knife if you have one), ice the bottom disc of the strawberries (not the tip) with the whipped coconut cream. You want this layer to be about the same thickness as the banana slice.
7 Place the banana slice on top of the coconut cream and replace the tip of the strawberry on top of the banana, using a tiny dollop of the whipped coconut cream to make them stick! If you’d like, pipe a small tip of coconut cream onto the top of the strawberry to resemble the pompom on Santa’s hat.
8 Enjoy!
