Healthy Halloween Snacks
Halloween is known for sugary treats and candy. Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a yummy treat in a healthier way. If you want to be more nutritious and still get in the holiday spirit, then try these easy healthy Halloween snacks instead!
Yogurt is an easy healthy snack idea, being perfect for the first healthy Halloween recipe. Take a Greek yogurt or any flavor that is light in color. Next, add some green food dye until your desired shade is reached. For an even healthier alternative, use spinach reserve to achieve the green color. Decorate clear cups as Frankenstein faces, then pour the yogurt mixture evenly throughout. Add a dash of chocolate sprinkles on top, and you now have some scary delicious Frankenstein yogurt. You can also experiment with different colors and flavors to make your own Halloween monster dessert.
Hard boiled eggs are already a healthy snack, but it can easily be turned into a healthy Halloween snack, too. Create your best deviled eggs, filling the center with alternatives such as hummus. To add a spooky effect, turn your eggs into spiders with olives. Just cut black olives in half vertically, placing one half in the center of each egg to form the body. Then, slice each remaining olive in half again into four sections to create the legs. Everyone will be obsessed with these creepy creations!
Candy Corn Popsicles
If you love the look of candy corns, you’ll love this juicy popsicle as a healthy Halloween snack. Pull out those popsicle molds from the summer, and get to preparing. Use pineapple juice for the yellow color on the bottom and then orange juice for the middle layer. For the tip on top, use Greek yogurt. Freeze overnight, and start the next morning with a delicious, Halloween-themed treat! This is great for those sporadic warm days in the fall, or simply an easy way to get your daily vitamins.
