 Sweet & Savoury Holiday Recipes 

Some of my absolute fondest memories of the holidays are those that are typically associated with all of the fun, and traditional foods that come with it! Drinking eggnog by the fire, baking cookies with my mom for Santa and of COURSE enjoying the big traditional Turkey dinner with my entire family!

Holiday foods always play a very special role in creating some pretty incredible memories during this festive time of the year, so I couldn’t NOT include a few of my favourite recipes that I like to bring out during the month of December! Except this time around, I decided to put a bit of a healthier spin on them using some of December’s Featured Products!

 1. Dairy-Free Cream Cheese & Yogurt Cranberry Dip

I LOVE this cream cheese & cranberry dip! One of my favourite flavour combinations has got to be anything that involves savoury and sweet, and this one is NO different! I have made this dip for a few different holiday parties over the past couple of years and it is always a huge hit!

For this particular variation, I’ve decided to swap out cream cheese & Greek yogurt for Spread Em Kitchen, Dairy-Free Chive & Garlic Cream Cheese & Daiya Alternative Greek Yogurt for a vegan-friendly dip… so everyone can enjoy this one!!!

 Ingredients:

½ cup Spread Em Kitchen, Dairy-Free Chive & Garlic Cream Cheese

¼ cup Daiya Alternative Greek Yogurt – Plain

1 Can Cranberry Sauce

Splash of lemon juice

1/8 cup Chopped Green Onion

1/8 cup Chopped Cilantro

Directions:

  1. Mix cream cheese & plain greek yogurt into one bowl
  2. Spread this onto the bottom of a serving dish
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, mix cranberry sauce, lemon juice, green onion and cilantro
  4. Spread this cranberry mixture onto the top of the cream cheese
  5. Serve with crackers!!!

2. Sun Butter Cup Cookies

I typically make these cookies using Peanut Butter, however this variation is made with Sun Butter and Free2B Dark Chocolate Sun Butter Cups… AKA a little bit more on the allergy friendly side of things!

Ingredients:  

1 cup Sun Butter

1 cup Coconut Sugar

1 cup All Purpose Flour

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Baking Soda

¼ cup Almond Milk

12 Free2B Dark Chocolate Sun Butter Cups

Directions:

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream the sun butter and coconut sugar together for about 1 minute
  3. In another bowl, add in all purpose flour, salt and baking soda. Mix!
  4. Start mixing the sun butter mixture again, and while mixing, add in the flour mixture
  5. Roll the dough into approximately 12 balls
  6. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, remove and immediately press one sun butter cup into each cookie
  7. Allow to cool
  8. Serve!
