Healthy Halloween

One of our favourite holidays is right around the corner: Halloween! From decorations, trick-or-treating, and those wild day-of-the-dead parties, this time of year is a total hoot, whatever your age and stage of life.

As you know, we’re big on balance. And that means that when the time is right to indulge in a little sugary treat, we think you should go for it! However, to make it a little easier to avoid a total blow out, we’ve created some (super cute) and not-so-naughty Halloween treats especially for you.

The Main Acts: 

  • Banana & Coconut Ghoul Pops
    These sweet little ghouls are super quick to make and can be kept in the freezer for a few days before you need them. 
  • Gingerbread Skeletons
    A spooky take on an old favourite, we’ve added a little extra cinnamon to create a darker base colour for the cookie so the piped white chocolate really pops!
  • Vegan Pumpkin Pies
    One for the big kids! These are one of our all-time favourite desserts and are made using a Vanilla Chia Pod – although it would work just as well with a Coconut Chia Pod.

The Decorations: 

Get a little creative and whip up some of our edible Halloween decorations, the perfect addition to your Halloween table:

  • Strawberry Dead Heads
    Dip strawberries into melted white chocolate and, after leaving to set for a few mins, use broken pieces of chocolate buttons for eyes, and piped icing for the mouth. Refrigerate for 20mins to set. 
  • Kiwi Frankensteins
    Using a paring knife, cut a jagged fringe and remove the kiwi skin to reveal your Frankenstein’s face. Decorate with yoghurt, raisins for eyes and pieces of apple for the mouth and bolts.
  • Spooky Spiders
    Use a big dark red grape for the body and a row of raisins along toothpicks for the legs. Just make sure to keep an eye on any little ones with those toothpicks!

Happy Halloween to you all – we hope it’s deliciously fun for everyone!
