When Halloween comes around it is fun the have lots of goodies. But the goodies do not always have to be full of sugar and nasties!
So when Aldi challenged me to create six healthy treats I was definitely up for the challenge!
Here are my six spooktacular treats!!!
Healthy Fruity Halloween Treats
Smooth peanut butter
Good paring knife
Cake pop sticks
How to create your spooky treats:
Take your apple and using the paring knife cut 2 small squares for the eyes and a rectangle for the mouth. Take the mini marshmallows and put one in each eye and 3 in the mouth.
Blood Dip and Witches Eyes
To make the blood dip blend together some strawberries and raspberries together into juice and pour into glasses. Scoop out the passion fruit seeds and place on top of the juice and there you have your witches eyes!
Last Halloween I created Banana Ghosts using chocolate drops. This year I wanted to make them with just fruit. So I replaced the chocolate drops for pomegranate seeds. To make these fruity bananas cut the bananas in half and put them on a cake pop stick. Using the peanut butter stick on the pomegranate seeds to make eyes and a mouth. Place the banana ghosts in a glass of blood dip so that you can enjoy them dipped in blood!
To make the fingers cut the bananas in half and then quarter. Place a little peanut butter on the tip of the banana and place a pomegranate seed on to create the nail. Put some peanut butter in a ramekin and sick the fingers in.
For the devilish dragon eyes cut the grapes in half, length ways. Half the blueberries and place them on top of the grape halves.
Cut the base off the tomato so that it will stand and cut 2 triangles for the eyes, cut a rectangle for the mouth. Take a slice of cucumber and cut 2 triangles to sit in the eye slots and cut some fangs for the mouth.
This Halloween I hope you will have a go at making some healthier treats for your children and have fun with the food! If there is any fruit left over after all of the fun simply blend them all together with any leftover peanut butter and a drop of milk to create a deliciously healthy smoothie!
