Course 2 meals a day, Baby Led Weaning, BLW, Dessert, Snack
Servings 7 santas


  • 7 medium strawberries
  • 1/2 cup ricotta
  • 1.5 tsp honey omit under 12 months
  • 14 sultanas


  • Slice the tops straight off of the strawberries and set aside
  • Whip the ricotta by adding it to a food processor with the honey. Whip until smooth
  • Add the whipped honey ricotta to a piping bag – or make your own by adding the mixture to a zip lock bag and slicing the end tip with scissors. Pipe the ricotta onto the base of the strawberry – roughly one tablespoon per strawberry
  • Place the tops of the strawberries onto the piped ricotta and add the Santa eyes using the sultanas
  • Place into the fridge if making in advance. Santas are best made on the day you wish for them to be consumed
