I always try to make sure that there is some fruit and salad on the Christmas buffet table to we have some slightly healthy food. This year I managed to get some cheap strawberries (25p a punnet) and grapes (15p) from The Company shop (a shop that sells short dated food to carers and essential services). I had seen this idea on a reel on my phone but can not credit it (apologies) as it was last year and I can’t remember what happened last week as I age!
My grandson loved these healthy Grinch Santas, and they were so easy to make, only taking 15 minutes at the most. Out of a marshmallow I go two hat bands and a little bit for the hat bobble and so you do not need a lot. I had some left over from Halloween.
On a small skewer you place the washed grape first, a slice of marshmallow, the bottom of the strawberry, and then a small bit of marshmallow for a hat bobble. Voila, you have a Grinch Santa which looks great on the buffet table and might entice some healthy eating. I saved the top of the strawberries to put into a fruit salad for today. (large strawberries were cut in half).
How do you add a bit of healthy nutrition to your Christmas buffet desserts?
