I’m always amazed when I go to write a post on “Healthy whatevers…” and most of what I come across isn’t anywhere near healthy – it’s just some sort of snack or recipe labeled as “healthy” so they can get more readers I suppose. For instance, I wouldn’t exactly call a candied apple healthy, even if it does involve an piece of fruit! But anyway, I have done my best to ensure that the recipes below are healthier snacks than all that candy the kids will be bringing home!
Monster Mash – Guac, chips, salsa. The BEST snack!
Hummus is another great snack and this candy corn looking veggie platter is really cute.
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie – I haven’t tried this yet but it looks really good!
Roasted pumpkin seeds – If you’ve ever tried to roast pumpkin seeds and completely screwed them up try this method!
Sweet potato chips with black olive tapenade – a recipe from the Food Network. Speaking of Food Network – poor Alfred failed his test to get into the cooking academy in London. And Jimmy is being s jerk about it of course.
I can’t remember where I first had a pumpkin/squash soup but it was love at first slurp. LOVE pumpkin soup! Squash soup in pumpkin bowls looks like it would a super cute recipe for the kids to try before they head out for tricks or treats.
Green Goblin Milkshakes – Includes spinach, bananas, dark chocolate, peppermint extract, etc.
Dark chocolate dipped apricots – just don’t eat too many!
Candy corn popsicles that include fruit, veggies, and squash.
2 drink recipes including a green goblin smoothie, AND beet blood shots!
