From mince pies to stollen, Christmas is a time for bringing together fruit and spice, cream and alcohol – it’s an abundance of indulgence!

Sweeten the season with Lion coulis and compotes

Lion’s new luxury fruit coulis and compotes are perfect for adding flavour and colour to traditional festive desserts and puddings, as well as adding a fruity flourish to seasonal showstoppers.

Lion’s compotes are handmade in small batches for a truly premium flavour and texture, and are bursting with large, juicy pieces of fruit. And our coulis, with a high fruit content and no artificial additives, are supplied with a decorating nozzle for simplicity and precision – ready for plate decorating, topping ice cream and puddings, and mixing into mocktails and smoothies.

We’ve pulled together a few sweet centrepieces this Christmas to inspire festive menus:

Chocolate and cinnamon berry roulade: The Yule log just rebooted itself as this gorgeous roll-call of cocoa sponge oozing with Cointreau-flavoured whipped cream, and Red Berry Compote crammed with strawberries, blackcurrants, blackberries, cranberries, redcurrant and apple, with just a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve dusted with icing sugar and a drizzle of Raspberry Coulis.

Tropical fruit trifle: Take customers’ tastebuds on a trip to warmer climes by soaking pieces of ginger cake in ginger wine (or cordial for a booze-free version), and topping with layers of custard, Mango, Passionfruit & Lime Compote, Strawberry Coulis and sweet whipped cream.

Black Forest Croitteau: When the 70s sweet married bread and butter pudding, the offspring was a glorious feast of croissants baked with currants, chocolate custard and Lion Black Cherry Compote. Serve with cool vanilla ice cream and delicately sweet Blueberry Coulis.

Eton Messier: Crushed meringue, thick whipped cream, slices of marsala-drenched figs, hearty dollops of Peach & Maple Compote and a shock of Passionfruit Coulis make this a dream of a dessert that everyone should try at least once. Finish with a scattering of berries and crushed almonds.
