Pomegranate Christmas dessert


Pomegranate and Banana Christmas pudding.

A quick pudding I put together for a Christmas meal.  The base is made of hazelnuts and coconut oil and the topping is quite simply pomegranates and bananas and a quick drizzle of agave syrup.

The ingredients are as follows:

2 x pomegranates

1 x banana

1 small bag of hazelnuts (about 100g)

coconut oil

Start by blending the hazelnuts into a fine powder in the blender (you will need a vitamix or equally powerful blender as the picture below).  Then add coconut oil in tbsp until you get a dough like consistency, adding in some agave to sweeten and help blend.  Use the vitamix plunger to get the mixture moving throughout the blender.  Remove the dough and press into the desired tin, top with the pomegranate seeds and the bananas and drizzle with the agave syrup.

You will only need small slices as it is very nutritious and very filling.  I like to drizzle some oat or soya cream over the top.  If your not sure where to purchase that check out Tesco or click the image below.
