Chocolate Orange Christmas Pastry Tree
1 sheet of puff pastry
100g dairy free cream cheese
30g Rich Chocolate Kids Good Stuff or Clean Lean Protein
1 tbsp fresh orange juice
1 orange, zest of + additional for dusting
1 tbsp icing sugar to dust (optional)
An easy to make fun festive treat that is simple enough to follow, even the kids can get involved!
Pre-heat an oven to 190c and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut your pastry sheet in half so you have two rough squares. Cut each square into the shape of a Christmas tree.
Create your protein chocolate orange spread by mixing the dairy free cream cheese, Kids Good Stuff/Clean Lean Protein, orange juice and orange zest together to form a paste.
Evenly spread the chocolate spread onto one of the Christmas trees and place the other pastry tree on top.
Transfer to the baking sheet. Using a sharp knife cut slits evenly on both sides about 2cm apart, leaving the centre intact.
Twist each pastry strip twice, pressing the ends into the baking sheet to retain the protein spread.
Brush with melted vegan butter and bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
Once baked dust with optional icing sugar and additional orange zest. Enjoy whilst still warm.
