Healthy Halloween Food Ideas
Halloween in 2020 might just be the strangest Halloween of them all. If you have children, what could be more frightening than having to keep your little terrors indoors, rather than sending them out to haunt the neighbours?
And yet, it looks like this year that’s exactly what’s going to happen. So why not get them involved with some healthy, homemade Halloween recipes and other fun activities.
Healthy Halloween Food
Whether it’s for the grown-ups or the kids, Halloween is not well-known for its healthy food. However, with just a bit of imagination, you can put together some really nice healthy Halloween snacks. What’s more, apples are in season in autumn, so it makes sense to use them for your healthy Halloween snacks.
For all of these ideas, you can pick up a pack of PinKids® apples if you’re making them for children. Just as tasty as full-size Pink Lady® apples, but also that little bit more kid-friendly in size.
Create your own little edible monster. Much like the process of carving a pumpkin, but with much less effort and nowhere near the same amount of mess. With just a few ingredients, you can create something fun. And when it comes to eating them, they’re much healthier too.
This is such a creative and effective alternative to carving a pumpkin, and we think it’s even more fun too. Peel, core and half your apples. Use a melon baller and a sharp knife to create the faces. You can make them as scary, ghoulish, silly, friendly or funny as you like. Follow the recipe to add them to some kid-friendly punch.
Sticky. Sweet. Crunchy. Toffee apples are a classic. And if you’re making toffee apples, you need to make sure your apple of choice can stand up to the tasty toffee on the outside. Pink Lady® apples will not let you down; they’re crisp, sweet and juicy to provide the wow factor when you bite through the toffee.
If you’re looking for something spookier than traditional toffee apples, these poison toffee apples should be right up your street. With some black food colouring you can create a treat that really will live up to Halloween’s spooky traditions.
If you’re not a fan of toffee, chocolate is a great alternative. Drizzle some Pink Lady® apples with white and dark chocolate to create a chocolatey treat that not only tastes great, but looks like a showstopper too. No one will ever know how easy they were to make!
Marshmallows are always a good options for Halloween. And if you make them at home, you’re able to keep a check on the sugar levels, making them much better for you than the shop bought versions. These apple pie marshmallows are fat free and taste almost as good as our ultimate apple pie recipe itself!
