Halloween can be a lot of fun, until you realized you ate your entire bag of candy that you were suppose to give to the trick or treaters! lol. Even the fun size candies can really add. Last night I went to a little Halloween get together and I wanted to make sure we had some cute festive yet healthy treat options that would make us feel less guilty & have more room for some spooky fun. I made 3 different types of halloween snacks; Monster apple teath, boonanas and tangerine pumpkins. To my surprise they went quicker then the chips, dip and chocolate. People loved how cute and tasty they were. If you want to fit in less calories & more fun this halloween try making one of my Halloween healthy treats below.
Monster Apple Teeth;
- Green Apples
- Yogurt covered raisins
- Peanut butter (or Almond Butter)
Directions; Slice up the green apples, take 2 slices, put peanut butter on the insides of each apple slice, place 4 to 5 yogurt covered raisins vertically on to the peanut buttered apple. Sandwich the apple slices together and wahlah! You have monster teeth that are fun to look at and filling too.
- coconut flakes
- organic honey
Directions: Take a banans, slice it in half. Take the bananas and spread organic honey on it, spread coconut flakes on both sides. Place 1 craisin where you want the mouth to be, cut another craisin in half creating 2 small eyes for the ghost bananas (can also use dark chocolate chips for eyes.)
Make boopsicles by placing dressed bananas in the freezer for four hours. Place popsicle sticks at the bottom of each ghost banana.
- Green Beans
Directions; This one is easy! Just peal the tangerines and place a green bean that is cut 1 inch long into the middle of the tangerine to look like a stem.
Happy Healthy Halloween!!!! Enjoy!
