Healthy Halloween Recipes!

  2. Pour the mixture into your favourite tea cup and put it in the fridge to set.

Lychee and blueberry eyeballs 

(Lychee: 19 calories + Blueberry: Less than 1 calorie each)

Ghosty strawberries

(One piece of white chocolate: 27 calories + Strawberry: 4 calories for a medium one)

Strawberries can be spooky too! The ghostly strawberries taste so good, you’re going to want more than one plate!

Ingredients

  • Strawberries, 
  • white chocolate melts 
  • and black icing for decoration. You can also use dark chocolate and a bobby pin.

Instructions

  1. Melt your white chocolate melts on the stove according to the instructions. Make sure it’s runny and completely melted.
  2. Now take your strawberries and cover it with white chocolate. You can use a spoon and pour the white chocolate over your strawberries to cover. I also dipped them in icy water as well to set them before putting them on a plate.
  3. Place them in the fridge for at least half an hour so the chocolate can set. Use your icing pen and draw some cute eyes. You can change up the expressions too.

There we have it! Simple strawberries covered in white chocolate that are pretty scary. Well actually they are pretty cute :)! mmmm

The Dipping Graveyard

(Carrots 1 cup chopped: 52 calories, Cucumbers 1 cup chopped: 16 calories, Wheat cracker: 9 calories per cracker, Dip check your dip label – this was 25 calories per serve)

What can be healthier than veggie sticks! With the right dip, they are so yummy as well!

Ingredients

  • A Carrot, cucumber or your favourite veggies, 
  • your faouvirte dip, I have a capcisum and paprika dip, 
  • and some rectangular wheat crackers.

Instructions

  1. First wash your veggies and peel off the skin. Slice up your veggies into sticks. Remember to get adult supervision if you never sliced up veggies before. Once you’ve cut up your veggies! place them aside.
  2. Pour your dip in in a bowl and place your veggies in your dip. Take your crackers that look like tombstones and place them around your dip.

Who knew that a graveyard can be so healthy? These tombstones and veggie sticks work so well with the gross looking bloody dip. It’s tastes a lot yummier than it looks.

Eyeball Onigiri

Instructions

  1. Start with mixing your tuna with some mayo and add some salt and pepper to season. 
  2. Wet your hands with cold water so the rice don’t stick and take some rice into your hands and mould it to your palm. 
  3. Poke a hole in the middle and add your tuna filling. 
  4. Add some rice on top and mould it into a ball. 
  5. Cut a seaweed circle to make the eyeball pupil and stick it in the middle! 
  6. You can add some eyebrows if you like, for some character.
That’s it easy tuna and mayo onigiri riceballs! These are so yummy, and filling :)! You can try other fillings too so get creative! MM squishy eyeball goodness!
