Halloween is fun for children and adults alike. Kids tend to overdo it on candy, while adults tend to overdo it on the sauce/booze/social lubricant/whatever you want to call it. If you are trying to stop the habits of old this year and want to focus on being a healthier Halloween host (not the person who passes apple slices or avocados out to kids), you can make the spooky snacks in this article.
We normally provide recipes with links, but this year we decided to make a few instructional recipe videos of snacks that are perfect for any Halloween party. Our favorite one to make was the Vegetable Skeleton Man! One major tip for that recipe is to plant out your skeleton on a large baking sheet or platter. A small plate will not accommodate the size and deliciousness of the skeleton. The smoothies were also fun, and they are very interactive for the children. This may even be the easiest way to get kids to enjoy some green monster smoothies! You can quadruple the batch if you plan on making a lot of smoothies. A pro tip is to get small cups so that you don’t have to make as much, especially if you are serving them at a party.
We know Halloween is about a week away, but let’s be honest…most of the events and parties are happening this weekend. Don your costume, put up some decorations, and display your creative, healthy side with these fun snacks. Watch the videos below and let us know what you are thinking about making in the comments.
