Sometimes it's great to step away from all the sweets and create healthy Halloween treats with your kids. We had so much fun creating these healthy alternative treats that you can serve up at your Halloween party. And there's no cooking involved!
We made Apple Monsters, Banana Ghosts, Mini Pumpkin and Jack-O'-Lantern Oranges. They are simple and healthier alternatives to give your little ones during Halloween.
Cook time: No cooking required
Makes: 1 adult portion
These were so much fun to make and the girls wanted to eat them before we had finished!
1 Apple cut into quarters
Almond slivers (about 10)
Green food dye
- Cut apple into quarters, cut out the mouth and stick the almond silvers into the flesh.
- Make the eyes using the mini marshmallows and make a dot on it using the food dye.
- Place the "eyes" into the flesh using toothpicks.
- Eat them up fast as the apple will turn brown quickly.
This banana ghost is nice and simple and it might even nudge a reluctant fruit eater to give it a try.
Half a banana
- Halve a banana.
- Place two cheerios as eyes and one as the nose.
1 mandarin orange
Stick of celery
- Peel your orange and place a small stick of celery on top. It's as simple as that!
A fun twist on a carved pumpkin!
Assortment of fruits
- Carve out the orange flesh out of the orange.
- Cut out the eyes, nose and mouth like you would out of a real Jack-O-Lantern.
- Fill the mini orange lanterns with your kids' favourite assortment of fruits.
