This is a festive twist on traditional trifle using our Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil with apples, ginger snaps and ginger bread men for the holidays. You can use other seasonal fresh fruit if you like. Nectarines, peaches, pears and figs also go great with cinnamon. The recipe calls for cooking some of the apples, but if you prefer you can use all the apples raw with the honey and Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil to save time.

I suggest reading through the whole recipe before you go shopping as there are a few options to consider.

NOTE: You can make your own thick custard or if pressed for time you can buy some. Yoghurt also works if you are looking for a lighter version, but it is the holidays so splurge a little. If you do use yoghurt just sweeten it to taste and add a few drops of vanilla or buy vanilla yoghurt. Remember keep it simple!

 Chef Kate’s TIP: I have given specific amounts so you have an idea however amounts will vary a little depending on the size of your trifle container. You’ll need enough to make the layers and fill the container. If you have any ingredients left over, they are great for a little snack or breakfast too.

I found health versions of ginger snaps and gingerbread men at my local health food store, however, they are a bit more expensive.
