Healthy halloween snacks

Ditch the lollies and swap them for a cauldron of goodness this spooky season.

Halloween might be synonymous with lollies, chocolate and chips but there are plenty of ways to add a nutritious touch to your celebrations. Here are some of our favourite simple swaps to make Halloween as healthy as it is delicious this year.

  • Mandarin pumpkins

    These guys are so easy to make and super cute for good measure. Simply peel your mandarins and be sure to keep them intact like a little ball. Once peeled, grab a handful of celery and chop each piece into small sticks that you can push through the middle of the mandarin to mimic a pumpkin stem. And you’re done!

  • Ghost bananas

    These are so simple and one of the silliest (read best) ways to have fun with fruit. The next time you’re at the shops, grab a bunch of semi-ripe bananas, chop each one in half and add three cacao nibs to the top of each banana. Imagine if your banana had a face – this is where you’ll want to add your nibs. In doing so, you’ll create two eyes and a mouth and give your banana the perfect Halloween spirit.  

  • Wicked pumpkin-face chips

    If you’ve got a large sweet potato, you’ve got half of this recipe ready to go! Start by pre-heating your oven to 200 degrees and then thinly slice your sweet potato to mimic your favourite potato chips. Once you’ve cut each slice, use the tip of a knife to carve out funny faces (like you would with a Halloween pumpkin). Once you have your faces ready to go, add them to a bowl filled with coconut oil, salt, and cinnamon. Bake these suckers for 45 minutes and be sure to flip them when you’re about halfway through. You’ll have crunchy pumpkin chip goodness in no time!

  • Orange juice cauldrons

    Grab a bottle of your favourite nudie orange juice, it’s time to craft your own Halloween-themed punch! Simply fill a big punch bowl with nothing but orange nudie juice (pulp or no pulp, both are good), add a handful of orange slices and then top it all off with some black grapes, blackberries or blueberries. 

  • Ghoulish gummies

    Filled with gut-health lovin’ goodness, this recipe is as easy as BOO! All you need is a cup of water, three tablespoons of honey, one cup of raspberry’s and half a cup of grass-fed gelatin powder. Blend your raspberries until they look more like a purée and then pop these into a saucepan on a low heat. Add your honey and gelatin, stir until it’s thick (this could take anywhere between five and ten minutes) and then pour your deliciously delightful gummy mixture into a mold of your choice and stick ‘em in the fridge for one hour.

  • Chocolate strawberry spiders

    Delicious, easy and definitely a crowd-pleaser, this yummy Halloween snack only requires three ingredients: a punnet of strawberries, some dark chocolate and a handful of goji berries! Oh, and some paper or cardboard spider legs, which we won’t eat but love for that true spider effect. First be sure to melt your dark chocolate (be careful when melting anything as things can get hot, hot, hot), then dip your strawbs into the melty chocolate goodness and pop them on a tray lined with baking paper. Then comes your paper legs. Once these are attached and using a toothpick, dip your goji berries in the leftover chocolate and voila – you’ve got your spider eyes ready and waiting to be attached. When you’re done, simply pop your marvellous creations in the freezer, wait for the chocolate to set, and enjoy!
