Healthy Halloween Treats!

With Halloween right around the corner and your costume finally picked out, it’s time to start preparing for the party!  Here’s some ideas on healthy snacks to keep everyone satisfied while feeling good too! Fruit and Veggie Platter:  Take your favorite fruits and vegetables and arrange them into your favorite Halloween icons like a Jack O’ Lantern or a skeleton.

Clementine Jack o’ Lanterns:  Peel enough clementines for your guests and then stick a small piece of celery into the top to act as the stem.  They look just like pumpkins!

Carrot Fingers:  Peel enough carrots for your guests and cut them in half.  Using whatever  dip you have chosen for the party, place a small amount at the top to stick either a pumpkin seed or sliced almond to look like a finger nail.

Banana Ghosts:  After peeling the bananas cut them in half.  Using cheerios or chocolate chips and peanut butter as a glue, stick them on the banana to make a spooky face!

Apple Mouths:  Once cutting enough red apples into slices, place 4-5 mini marshmallows between the two slices to look like teeth.  Fasten the two slices together using a tooth pick.

These healthy snacks will be just as big of a hit as your party will be!  Your guests won’t be able to keep their hands off of them!

Greek Yogurt Mini Pops

Believe it or not...I have a wicked sweet tooth. These are the perfect solution! Greek Yogurt mini pops!

Introducing: Greek Yogurt Mini Pops!

         I do have a wicked sweet tooth, I mainly keep it under wraps but I will not deny my lack of willpower at times...awful right?!

         Ok these lil guys are PERFECT! I took blueberries and cut up a strawberry, put them in an ice cube tray and voila! Great little bite sized frozen dessert that is not going to send you on a guilt trip.


I used about 1 tsp of french vanilla Greek Yogurt in each cube with both a strawberry piece and a blueberry. Want to guess what the calories came out to be per cube?!



3.5 Calories!!!


Yup. And they are nice and chilly so they are great during the summer! Holy Moley I am in love!


Enjoy XYB’ers :)
