How cute are these festive Strawberry Santa Men?! They make the perfect healthy snack over the Christmas period .. although I have actually been told before that they are “too cute” to eat!!

 

These Strawberry Santa Men are super quick and simple to make and they taste just amazing – who would guess that they are 100% healthy too! Thanks to the strawberries and raisins they are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre, and thanks to the filling they provide a small amount of protein too.

 

I’ve included a higher protein version below the ingredients list for those who were asking (just like in my Healthy Gingerbread Men recipe!) :)

 

Do let me know if you give this recipe a go! And you MAY recognise this recipe from the Debenhams Found It for the Foodie magazine (I am so thrilled to be featured in it!!) :D

 

 

Ingredients

  • 15 large round, ripe strawberries
  • 100g ricotta cheese*
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar alternative**
  • 10g raisins, chopped into small pieces***

*For a dairy-free alternative mix some soya yoghurt with coconut flour to thicken it up!

**I used Sukin sweetener. For a protein version swap the sweetener for 30g (1 scoop) of protein. With the protein powder the santa men are 26 calories, 0.8g fat, 0.4g carbs and 2.1g protein each.

***You can swap the raisins for chocolate sprinkles!

Method

Step 1

Slice off the top of the strawberry (the bit with the green bit on!) so that the santa men can stand up. And then slice off the tip to make the hat.

Step 2

Mix together the ricotta with the sweetener or protein powder and spoon the mixture on top of the santa bodies before placing on the hats. Add a dot of the mixture to the top of hat and then two down the front for buttons (I did this using the end of a spoon).. pop the santa men onto a plate in the fridge and repeat for the rest of the santas.

Step 3

Add small pieces of raisins for the eyes and either serve to your hungry guests or keep chilled for later (they keep for 24-48 hours in the fridge!).

 

Yum!! Merry Christmas everyone :) xx
