5 Healthy Halloween Recipes

Spooky season is now in full swing and that means it’s time to eat lots of junk food and an abundance of chocolate. Eating healthy during the holidays is difficult, but manageable. Halloween is all about creativity and doing it yourself, so check out these healthy Halloween recipes. 

  1. Avocado toast is one of the few foods I love and enjoy eating. This is a spooky twist on classic avocado toast. You have to mash the avocado and make sure you get it to a smooth consistency. You can play with the ingredients, from adding whatever you’d like or changing the amounts of ingredients needed. This recipe below can make around 4 pieces of avocado toast.

    Ingredients

    4 pieces of toast

    4 avocados

    1 Tablespoon lemon juice

    2 sheets of seaweed

    Radishes

    Black olives

    Mini dill pickles 

    Grape tomatoes

    Walnuts

    ½ red bell pepper

  2. Do you have to go to a Halloween party but don’t know what to bring? No worries, I got you. You can make a veggie tray that looks like a pumpkin to get you in the Halloween spirit. This tray is a super easy recipe and does not require a lot of time and effort. Don’t think that you have to limit yourself to the veggies shown, you can always customize it to whatever vegetables you like. 

    Ingredients 

    A bag of baby carrots

    Mini seedless cucumbers 

    Platter

     

  3. The bananas are dipped in white chocolate to resemble small ghosts and mummies. If white chocolate isn't for you, you can swap for dark chocolate. Also, if you don’t want to cover it with chocolate you can dip it in vanilla greek yogurt. This Halloween treat is both kid and adult-friendly. 

    Ingredients for Banana Popsicles

    4 large bananas

    1 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt

    Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

    16 popsicles sticks

    For the Banana Popsicle Mummies

    ⅓ cup creamy peanut butter

  4. Yes, you read that right! It is vegan and paleo. This recipe is so realistic and disgusting that it makes me fall in love even more with the recipe. The cookie fingers are so spooky and fun that will make your party shine.

    Strawberry Jelly

    ¾ cup frozen strawberries (measured when thawed and soft)
