Healthy Halloween Food Ideas You’ll Love
Here are 11 different healthy Halloween foods you can use for breakfast, snacks, dinner, and parties.
Orange Jack O Lanterns
The healthiest & easiest Halloween snack is to draw Jack O’ Lantern, ghost, & monster faces onto the peel of an orange, clementine, tangerine, or banana. Simply use a Sharpie to draw on the fruit with any peel that you don’t eat. You don’t want to eat the marker ink.
It’s great to make a fruit bowl with decorated oranges and bananas. The combination of anti-oxidants and vitamins in these fruits boosts immunity, energy, and mood. They’re also great for digestion, hydration, and post-workout recovery. This is also a great nutrient combination to eat as we’re headed into cold & flu season & those that suffer from seasonal depression. I highly recommend this quick & easy snack to celebrate Halloween.
Fruit Ghosts and Pumpkins
To elevate your clementines & bananas another way you can decorate them with piped, melted chocolate. Chocolate, especially dark chocolate, is packed with antioxidants. Plus, the bitter flavor of the dark chocolate pairs well with fruits and helps prevent cravings. It also tricks the brain into feeling fuller faster with less food.
- To make the Banana Ghosts, cut a banana in half and draw a spooky face with melted chocolate piped from a bag.
- To make the Clementine Pumpkins, peel a whole clementine and add a pumpkin ‘stalk’ made out of celery into the top for a cute pumpkin.
- To make the Scary Berries, add ‘eyes’ by making a dot of Greek yogurt to blackberries, grapes, or blueberries.
Halloween Fruit Plate
A healthy fruit plate is perfect for a Halloween-themed breakfast, brunch, or a party. Add your fruit faces to a snack board or plate for a cute fruit charcuterie of sweet treats that are so much better than processed candy.
For a sweet dip, make spiced yogurt by combining Greek yogurt, honey, and pumpkin spice. Serve hummus as a savory dip and top with Greek yogurt piped on to make a spiderweb.
Use different combinations of fruit varietals to create monster mouths.
By using red and green apples, different kinds of nut butters, fruits, and seeds – you’ll be able to make a variety of scary faces and get a wider array of nutrients. So feel free to ‘taste’ the rainbow and try different combinations of ingredients. Making monster eyes out of red and green grapes is very easy and yummy.
Apple Butter Berry Monster Bites
Monster mouths are a cute snack you can make out of apples, nut butters (of your choice), and add ‘teeth’ made from almond slices, sunflower seeds, or any other nut or seed you’d like.
Add a slice of strawberry, watermelon, or mango to add a tongue to your monster’s mouth. Use nut butter to stick the fruit tongue in place. These make a great snack, dessert, or addition to a charcuterie board.
Jack O’ Lantern Pepper Bowls
Carving Jack O’lantern, ghost, and monster faces into raw bell peppers. Use them as bowls for salads, fruit slices, berries, and vegetable sticks. Serve with a healthy dip or dressing.
Jack O’ Lantern Stuffed Peppers
You can also use the pepper bowls above to make fun stuffed peppers for dinner.
You can also use the above recipe with mini peppers to make cute & healthy appetizers for your next Halloween party. They make the perfect fiber and protein-packed appetizer!
Spiderweb Pumpkin Soup
Make this Pumpkin Soup or get organic pumpkin or butternut squash soup from the store and pipe on 3 circles approximately 3/4″ apart with Greek yogurt diluted down with nut milk or water. Then drag a toothpick outwards from the middle through the circles in 6-8 places to create a spiderweb pattern. Garnish with toasted pumpkin or sunflower seeds. It’s so easy and so cute.
Spooky Charcuterie Board
Create a spooky charcuterie board with your favorite raw & organic cheeses, sulfite-free meats, and gluten-free/organic crackers. Then add on berries, sliced fruits, nuts, seeds, olives, and veggie sticks. Dark red and blue berries like strawberries, cherries, blueberries, grapes, and blackberries work best for Halloween. They also have the least sugar and most antioxidants.
It’s also cute to add hummus to crackers. Then top them with sliced black and green olives arranged to make spiders or eyes.
You can dress your board with clementine pumpkins or real mini pumpkins. Fake plastic spiders and skeletons are also a fun and easy way to add Halloween flare to a traditional charcuterie board. Or you could arrange scary faces out of your fruits, meats, and cheeses or draw ghost or jack o’ lantern faces onto your toppings with balsamic glaze.
Spider Deviled Eggs
Spider deviled eggs make a cute and healthy Halloween appetizer.
Use sliced black olives to make a spider on top of your deviled eggs. See my favorite, healthy deviled eggs recipe here.
You can also blend your egg-yolk mixture with paprika to make it a pretty orange color. Then top with a piece of green onion or celery to make a ‘stalk’ so the yolk center of the deviled egg look like a pumpkin. I like to make a mix of pumpkins and spiders and use them to decorate my charcuterie boards.
Meatball & Mozerella Eyes
Meatball and mozzarella monster eyes are also easy and fun to make. Simply make your meatballs dressed in a red sauce. Once cooked, top the meatballs with a slice of a baby mozzarella ball and black olive to make it look like a creepy eye.
Monster Avocado Toast
Make a monster face of a slice of healthy toast for a super cute Halloween breakfast or snack.
I recommend Dave’s killer bread or Ezekial bread to make the toast. Then spread avocado on the toast and use sliced hardboiled eggs, black olives, bell peppers, and other veggies to make faces.
