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.
