CHRISTMAS VEGETARIAN RECIPES
CHRISTMAS TREE WITH FRUITS
This is an original presentation of a Christmas fruit tree to put on the Christmas table. During the holidays, it is important not to forget the consumption of natural sweets like those in fruits.
They are very important at this time because they provide fiber, vitamins, minerals and medicinal components that benefit our bodies.
In this recipe we can introduce diuretic fruits, low in calories, to help us counteract the dietary excesses of these Christmas holidays.
Some fruits can help you lose weight. For example, pineapple can provide digestive properties due to its bromelain content.
We can accompany it with other fruits such as carambola, blueberries, papaya, grapes, pomegranate, kiwi, strawberries, grapefruit and oranges, all of them very diuretic.
The imagination of each one of you will be able to set out all the ingredients in a beautiful Christmas tree.

Preparation: (See instructions on drawing below)
In our tree we use a pineapple as a base. Papaya could also have been used, for example.
Half a pineapple will be the base of our tree.
Put the pineapple base on a serving plate. Introduce four skewers forming a pyramid, and another one in the center of the pineapple base to place the Christmas star on top of it.
Fill the skewers with fruit.
Poke some shorter sticks across the pineapple base, filling them with fruit pieces or with moulded pieces of fruit, in a decorative way to resemble a Christmas tree.
Among the fruits that can help us,we have carambola (starfruit), which is easily cut and shaped in stars perfectly.
- Strawberries, grapefruit or grapes give us a nice Christmas red. In addition, grapes can remind us the Christmas tree balls.
