Despite all the goblins, ghosts and ghouls, the spookiest part about Halloween may just be the outrageous amount of sugar and candy we all consume on this one night each year.
I have found some healthier Halloween treats created by Chef Anthony Stewart, Executive Chef at Pritikin Longevity Center + Spa .
Candy Corn Fruit Cup | Healthy Halloween Party Ideas
Excellent for a Halloween party or for a dessert any time of the year. It’s healthy, sweet, tangy, and oh-so-easy to put together.
2 cups mango cubes
2 cups clementine segments
2 cups fat-free, plain Greek yogurt
Top with zest of clementine.
Chocolate Jack O’Lantern | Healthy Halloween Party Ideas
For spooky, chocolatey fun, carve out oranges and fill with Pritikin’s Chocolate Mousse.
Servings: 5 half-cup servings
1/4 cup water cold
1/2 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
1/4 cup Splenda granulated
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
12 ounces tofu silken, extra-firm
In a medium saucepan, add water and warm over low heat, bringing to a low simmer.
Add cocoa powder to saucepan, stirring constantly until the mixture becomes a fudge-like consistency.
Remove from heat.
Add Splenda to fudge, mixing well. Add vanilla extract, mixing well.
In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, add tofu and chocolate fudge mixture. Process until mixture is smooth and creamy.
Pritikin Halloween Kabobs | Healthy Halloween Party Ideas
How easy! Simply skewer cantaloupe cubes and blackberries. And so easy for the kids to pick up and snack on! (We’re not guaranteeing they’ll forget the sugary treats in their bags, but these colorful kabobs just may do the trick.)
I think these all sound great and are easy to whip up. They would be great anytime not just Halloween. Keep watching for more great recipe ideas! Happy Halloween!
