Vegetarian Christmas Turkey Fruit Platter and Thanksgiving Vegetarian Turkey

Vegetarian Christmas Turkey Fruit Platter and Thanksgiving Vegetarian Turkey

This is a quick easy platter to make to keep Christmas festive and healthy.  Mandarins, Kiwi Fruit, Strawberries, Boysenberries, Cheddar Cheese or Hard cheese and Black Grapes.

For the turkey itself:  Cut a pear in half, take the seeds out and a little of the core, use currants or raisins for the eyes, cut the nose and feet out with a hard cheese. Cut little bits out of the pear to place the eyes, nose and feet in.

Tip: you can use a little bit of dip or cream cheese to place in the holes to secure the raisins and cheese in place.

Chocolate Christmas Balls (we love these)

Making them together is such fun.


1 tin condensed milk

1 packet quality chocolate biscuits (or make your own)

3 tablespoons of cocoa

1 bar organic cooking chocolate about 60% + cocoa

1 cup of rice bubbles

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

dessicated coconut to roll the balls in

Method:  Take out blender or other device to crush up the chocolate biscuits once completed do the same with the rice bubbles.  Mix them together, then add the vanilla essence and condensed milk.  Grate up one half to three-quarters of the cooking chocolate and add to the mixture along with the cocoa.  Mix thoroughly.  Once combined the mixture needs to be slightly firm.  Roll into golf size balls with your hands and roll in the coconut mixture.  Refrigerate if using within a few days or freeze if you want to keep them for longer.
