InSpiral Raw Christmas Cake

   InSpiral is one of my favourite healthfood brands. I always have a stock of their granola bites for those days that I don't meet my caloric intake for my workout and being entirely 100% natural and additive-free, I know I'm getting more good out of it than I would from anything else at that point in the evening.
   They also have a range of raw puddings, and one of them is a Christmas cake! How about that? All natural, raw - so all the goodness of the fruits and seeds and everything is fully in tact - and in a lovely re-usable small glass jar. I fancied giving one a try - and just as well I did as they're selling fast! - and I'm pleasantly surprised.

   I wasn't sure what to expect from their raw desserts because I'd never tried them or anything like them before. My raw experience has never gone past carrots or chocolate to be honest, but I have to admit that I'm keen to try their other desserts.

   I was greeted with a lovely, smooth coconut and vanilla cream frosting on the surface that I wanted to stick my finger in. I did. And beneath that was a lovely raw almond marzipan later, and beneath that still a spiced, cake-like layer with typical Christmas fruits. There were definite hints of coconut which I've never tried in a Christmas cake before, but it was still most definitely a mouthful of Christmas. And I love Christmas.
   It was quite rich despite being raw, which was wonderful because I expected it to be quite bland, so don't underestimate their size. My eyes have always been bigger than my belly but after just two bites of this jarred premature Christmas celebration I could tell that the whole jar would be more than enough for a single person. They're an easy dessert, but they have a wonderful punch and would be perfect as host/hostess gifts at Christmas parties - something they wouldn't be able to share with anyone else! Who honestly likes sharing when it comes to food?

   Their desserts arrive via courier the next day, and they're sent cooled to keep them fresh. There's a minimum order of 4 puddings for £13, making them £3.25 each, so they're perfect for the whole family, and with their raw and organic nature they're super healthy as well as delicious so you can have your Christmas desserts without the guilt - so that's one thing you're allowed to have this Christmas!
