Healthy Halloween 2015



Halloween.


IS NEAR.


And although I don't feel the usual butterflies in my belly about the whole thing this year, I am still pretty excited.


I have always been more a fan of the grim and creepy -- so Halloween is sort of my thing. It gives me a chance to feel a bit LESS weird than I usually do about regularly adorning my room with skulls, skeletons and all things Nightmare Before Christmas.


On the Halloween roster this year I have: Nightmare Before Christmas (a-duh!), Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie, ParaNorman, The Conjuring, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and maybe Coraline.

I don't know if I will get to them all but I sure hope so!


Halloween is obviously about candy and chocolate and all things creepy and delicious. If you are throwing a Halloween party why not include some of these?! I mean...it may off-set some of those late night mini-snickers bar binges. Does anyone else tell themselves that the mini versions are like 1/10th of the calories even though they're really not?! Hehe

On a side note: a lovely reader actually made these and said everyone at her party LOVED them -- so that's an option too!



1. Candy Corn Protein Squares

 

Creamy, citrus HEAVEN with a protein kick ;)

 

2. Halloween Cake Pops

 

I coloured these green for fun but you can make any colour cake you would like!


 

3. Pumpkin Patch Brownies

Fudgey Brownies topped with a spooky pumpkin patch!



4. World's Healthiest Pumpkin Pie

 

No party is complete without pumpkin! Cut out ghosts for the top instead for a fun spooky twist!

 


5. Healthy Halloween Matcha Donuts

These delightfully green donuts are so cute! Decorate them any way you want!

6. Black Magic Protein Squares

One of my favourites. These protein squares are for the chocolate fudge lovers!

Alright! Well that's a start. Fill up a dessert table with treats cut to size. Mini versions are fun to carry around. It makes it easier to jam in your mouth so you flee from ghosts!


I think a big bowl of blood (cranberry juce or sangria), monster juice (anything green) or a number of drinks would pair nicely with these little treats.


Are you ready for Halloween? I can't wait to put together my very....interesting costume!

Happy Healthy Halloween!

XO
