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.
Get a little creative and whip up some of our edible Halloween decorations, the perfect addition to your Halloween table:
- White Chocolate 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. Decorated 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!
