Halloween is just around the corner, as the colder days roll in with the darker nights. However, it doesn’t need to be all about the sugary snacks as there are some great healthy fruit Halloween snacks you can make with minimal fuss.
Some of these recipes may have a little sweet addition to them but they all start with the fruit as the main ingredient.
These strawberries would be great in the run-up to Halloween or maybe even in a lunch box. If you don't want to make your own eyes, I recently bought some candy eyes from the supermarket which work just as well.
I have seen lots of candy apple recipes (a few follow this too) but I have never seen a Black Halloween candy apple that looks like a poisoned apple! They look amazing and I am sure they taste just as amazing.
These are a great treat to make, with minimal ingredients and quick to make, they will become firm favourites in your household. The banana ghosts use coconut yoghurt too, so perfect for those with dairy intolerances.
The little witches are a little creative and bring a little something else to the table! If you want to give a spooky treat that everyone loves, it takes just a few minutes and a couple of ingredients.
For those who are not that creative, these pumpkin oranges just need the orange and a Sharpie!
All of these easy Halloween treats come with a variety of different fruits and other ingredients.
If you are considering making your own healthy Halloween recipes, here are some of the most popular ingredients to use:
Fresh fruit – Lots of mandarin oranges, bananas, green grapes and red apples in use but most fruits work.
Mini chocolate chips
You don’t need to just use fruit though, things such as red peppers are a great alternative too.
For those who are hosting a Halloween party, creating a great watermelon fruit bowl surrounded by some of the great ideas above will give your table its centrepiece. You can use lots of the ingredients above to create silly monster faces or even a spider web on your fruit slices.
We know there are plenty of sweets and sugary treats around in the holiday season, so finding some fun treats that bring a little goodness is always a winner. Hopefully, this easy Halloween snack idea list will give you a little inspiration for some Halloween fun.
