Halloween is often a time when you will be tempted to veer off your healthy eating plan and dip into all the sweet treats that are floating around, especially when you have kids who love the sugar hit. But you don’t have to, there are many healthy delicious recipes that you can tweak to make some fun Halloween treats.
Healthy Mummy community member and mum Sophie Barrett has put a Halloween spin on some of her favourite Healthy Mummy recipes.
Check out what Sophie created below.
Healthy Mummy Halloween treats
“Jack-o-lantern” Guacamole vomit
1/2 clove garlic
Squeeze lemon juice
To Make Guacamole:
Crush the garlic, then mash together with the avocado with a fork
Season with salt & pepper, and mix in the lemon juice
Remove the insides of the orange, and carve the “Jack O Lantern” mouth and draw on eyes
Cut up the wrap like “teeth” and place on an oven tray and lightly spray with oil
Roast in oven till crispy
To assemble, place the orange on a board. Make the guacamole “spew” from the lanterns mouth, and place the “teeth” around the edge.
Place 1 frozen banana, apricots, passionfruit, vanilla smoothie powder & Dunaliella Salina powder with 1/2 cup almond milk into a blender or processor and mix until blended together. Place this into your bowl.
To Make Black Smoothie
Place 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup almond milk, activated charcoal and chocolate smoothie powder into a blender or processor and mix until blended together. Place this into your bowl.
Swirl them together using a knife or skewer. Top with chosen toppings. I have “teeth” (Almond slivers) & orange sprinkles.
For black whip; coconut cream chilled in fridge and 1tsp activated charcoal powder
Place all smoothie ingredients in a blender and blend until combined
For black whip – use the solids from the coconut cream chilled overnight. Place the solids and the charcoal into a mixer, and whip until it has a semi-soft consistency, swirl on top.
Smoothie only 319
With optional whip add 142
Hidden veg sausage roll “mummies”
I used 2 sheets of puff pastry
Make mince mix as per normal.
Cut strips from the puff pastry.
Make palm size “logs” of mincemeat, and start wrapping the puff pastry strips around the mince to create a mummy. Slightly stretch the pastry as you go, because you’re layering the pastry, you want it to be a bit thinner.
Place on a tray, and make little “eyes” using some carrot
