Wellbeing Christmas Pudding

This nutty, citrus twist on the traditional Christmas pudding substitutes refined sugar with the natural sweetness of dried fruits and honey.

1. Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix everything together until really well combined. Spoon the mixture into a greased one-litre pudding basin and smooth over the top. Cover with a piece of pleated greaseproof paper, then pleated foil. Secure tightly with string around the top.

2. Put the basin in a large-lidded casserole dish sitting on top of an old saucer so the bowl isn’t touching the bottom of the pan. Fill the basin halfway up with boiling water and simmer gently for five hours, making sure the water is regularly topped up.

3. Take the basin out of the water and leave to cool for 20 minutes before turning out and serving
