Healthy Christmas Treats

Healthy Christmas Treats

It’s that time of year when we all tend to splurge on treats that taste good on our lips, but are not so good for our hips. Consider adding a variety of healthy Christmas treats to your offerings. I love that these “recipes” are so easy you basically just need to look at the photo to figure out what to do. I also like that they only require a few ingredients for each.

These are just too cute NOT to make them. Just some easy slices of bananas, apples and grapes. Use raising for super healthy buttons and eyes or small carob or chocolate chips.

These are super easy to make with a watermelon and a kitchen knife. If you want to get extra fancy, you can use cookie cutters to make other shapes too. Just be sure the melon is not too soft or the shapes will not turn out very well.

My kids love this one. Thank goodness snap peas are a veggie they will actually eat. So easy to make alternative choices with green peppers, apple slices, etc.

My girlfriend gave me this idea. I never thought to look for a tree cake pan to serve other items. Get creative with your fillings to make different colorful designs.

I saw these on Pinterest and just thought they were the CUTEST! Use yogurt instead of whipped cream for your filling. My kids loved these with small scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt.

Could this be any easier? I think not. My daughter thought this was the cutest thing when I gave it to her for a snack the other day.

Well, this is as complex as it gets. Pita, pretzel, avocado hummus (or a greenish spread of your choice) and red peppers. Again, super festive, healthy and simple to make. I brought these to a neighborhood holiday party the other night.

    When “healthy” + “treat” are in the same headline, you’ve got my attention! Very cute ideas!

    These are such creative ideas Jenn. I am going to share these with my adult children.

  4. These are such fantastic ideas. Wish I’d seen them sooner as I just threw a Sugar Palooza Christmas party last night. Whew.

    Love those pita trees and I totally pinned the strawberry santas a couple days ago. So cute and an easy perfect way to get kids eating healthy. Plus, they look like a lot of fun to make. – Katy

    My kids are pretty good about vegetables, but for some reason, I just can’t get them to eat snap peas. Maybe they’ll eat them if they look like a tree. 🙂

    I love these healthy treats! This is just what I have been thinking about this month. Most people agonize over the possibility of gaining weight from overeating during the holiday season. Your healthy treats are a great solution and should be featured as part of every holiday feast, starting with mine.

    Awesome healthy treat ideas and very fun too. I have been attempting to curb the treats over the holiday season which is tricky with holiday get togethers. These healthy snacks will be appealing to adults and kids I think.
