Healthy Scottish Christmas Deliciousness

This is a definite to do this Christmas. A scrumptious, creamy, crunchy, fruit, healthy treat along the lines of the famous Scottish Christmas dessert, The Cranachan.

This version of the Cranachan is one which you can eat on a healthy eating diet plan. You don’t have to feel guilty. You can enjoy the smoothness and richness of this gorgeous dessert with the family (plus the sneaky whisky).
