Low Carb Christmas Pudding
Tis' the season to pick your carbs. This isnt the lowest carb option. But when you compare a store bought Christmas Pudding that has anywhere between 40-60g of carbs per 85g piece, to our 18g of carbs. You really cant go wrong :D
1/2 packet (170g) of Protein Muffin Mix 1 cup chopped apricot – 140g 2.5 cup chopped prunes (I use scissors for this) – 500g 1/2 cup sultanas – 70g 3/4 cup coconut oil or butter 180g 3/4 cup brandy or favourite liquor 180g 1 teaspoon Cinnamon 1 teaspoon mixed spice 1 teaspoon nutmeg Juice & grated zest for 1 large orange
Place in a microwave-safe bowl – all dried fruit, orange juice, orange zest & brandy. Microwave for 2 minutes to soften the fruit. Then add on top the coconut oil or butter and stir until melted. In a separate bowl combine Cinnamon, nutmeg, mixed spice & Protein Muffin Mix. Add in the 2 eggs to the fruit mix and combine Pour fruit mixture into the dry mix and combine. Spray a 1.5-2L microwave-safe bowl with oil. Pour in pudding mix and even out. Place a lid or plate over the top. Cook for 5-7 minutes on medium power. Let cool in the bowl for 15 mins then use a spatula to loosen from edges and turn out pudding. Serve with custard. (we used Paul’s 30% less sugar) or you could make your own.
