Have fun with your family and friends with these 5 Healthy Halloween Fun Food Ideas
Banana Ghosts and Tangerine Pumpkins.- This is my favorite of the 5 Healthy Halloween Fun Food Ideas. It is easy to make and so much fun to eat. Serve this fruit tray at any halloween party. You can use celery stalks or pretzel sticks for the tangerines also. For the banana ghosts, use mini chocolate chips for the eyes and regular chocolate chips for the mouths. Always a big hit!
The Pumpkin Veggie Tray.- Healthy and very easy to make. Just use baby carrots, cucumbers, and a broccoli floret to shape your pumpkin. You can use small dip containers for the eyes and nose. That’s it! No cooking required and ready in less than 10 minutes. It is the perfect finger food for your Halloween party.
If you want to serve more finger foods, you can make your own dips with some homemade crackers. Check out this recipe Homemade Cheddar Cheese Crackers and make them with only 4 ingredients. Make sure you also use a Halloween Mini Cookie Cutter Set to make it more fun.
Witch Broomsticks.- Make super cute broomsticks with pretzel sticks, string cheese, and chives. Cut each string cheese stick in half. Carefully press a pretzel stick into the uncut side of each cheese stick about 1/2 inch deep. Make the bristles. Using sharp scissors, cut thin slices that are about 1 inch in length. Gently tie a chive around the top portion of the string cheese and snip off the long ends. Serve it in a spooky Halloween Spider Web Round Melamine Platter.
You can also get super cool Personalized Halloween Vintage Milk Jars for your party too. Want another great healthy Halloween food idea? Check out this recipe: Turkey Pumpkin Chili. This idea was taken originally from foodlets.com
Jack-O-Latern Salad.– In a large bowl mix your favorite salad ingredients and dressing. You can also make a fruit salad. To carve a pumpkin cup, slice off the top of the orange, using a knife to loosen the edges, scoop out the inside of the orange with a spoon. Toss the juice in with your salad. Carve a small jack-o-lantern face in each orange and fill with your salad. The coolest of the 5 Healthy Halloween Fun Food Ideas in my opinion.
Pizza mummies.- You can make these mummies with whole wheat english muffins or small round pita bread. Heat the oven to 350º F. A toaster oven will work too. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin or pita bread. Cut olive slices in for the eyes and green onion or pepper for the pupils. Lay strips of cheese across the muffin for the mummy’s wrappings and bake for about 10 minutes. Make sure the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted.
For another healthy halloween treat see my post, Homemade Healthy Gummies and use a cool Halloween Silicone Mold. You can also make Olaf ‘s Cheese Pizza if you want to add some fun and creativity to your meals.
