Christmas / Festive / Recipes


Vanilla Protein Reindeer Shortbread.

The wait is over. We’re just over a week out from the big day. It’s time to turn up Michael BublĂ© album and digest foods that are either packed with sultanas, cinnamon or chocolate. Christmas is well and truly here!!

When I was little, I was obsessed with Reindeers. Every year I’d convince myself I could hear them on the roof or see Rudolf’s red nose glowing in the sky.  So this year, I thought I’d re-create that memory in true foodie fashion. So today I bring you, Reindeer Shortbread!

Super simple to make and super tasty, these will definitely be a hit with the family this year. Perfect with a cuppa and a Christmas movie!
