Festive Food Alternatives

Wednesday 15th December 2021

With Christmas less than two weeks away, our traditional festive favourite foods are flying off the shelves!

If your local supermarket is already out of turkeys for this year, or you’re struggling to find a Christmas pudding to feed all the family, then take a look at our festive food alternatives.

We’ve put together our favourite Yeo inspired recipes that you can serve over the holidays to keep the whole family happy!

Our delicious Cheese Scone Wreath recipe!

To keep peckish guests happy, our new Cheese Scone Wreath recipe will surely go down a treat. Taking less than an hour to make, it’s the perfect sharing showstopper to present before the main event!

Or, if you’re looking for some super simple canapes to serve, our Sticky Fig & Stilton Crostini and Broad Bean Pate Toast recipes are really tasty.


The Main Event

With turkey being the most popular bird to serve at Christmas, it can be a mad dash to find one to feed all the family! If there’s none left on your shelves, then these Roast Duck or Slow Cooked Gammon recipes are an equally lovely option. To make your veg extra special, why not try our Yogurt Marinade that uses our organic Natural Yogurt.

And if you’re wanting to try something completely different, why not swap the turkey for trout this year? Our Tea Smoked Trout recipe is a delicious alternative! If the family needs some more convincing, find out more about the benefits of trout in our blog.




If you have room for puds, then these recipes will bring the Christmas magic!

Yeo Valley Organic festive pudding alternative
You can’t disappoint with our fun Festive Bombe recipe!

Our Iced Festive Bombe recipe is a fun alternative to the traditional Christmas Pudding. It’s bursting with fruity flavour, making it the perfect post-dinner centrepiece.

But if you’re looking for something lighter, our Christmas Muffins recipe – inspired by festive spices – are a doddle to make. Or, you can even keep it traditional and make your own Cranberry Mince Pies – our organic custard pairs beautifully!
