Healthy Halloween Treats with Help from Paradise Fruits

Posted on October 25, 2018

Ghosts, mummies and monsters make for fast, easy and healthy Halloween treats when fresh fruit plays the starring role in all of them. Check out a handful of healthy Halloween ideas, pick your faves, and then stock up on the main ingredients at Paradise Fruits at Birkdale Fair.

Strawberry Ghosts

Sensationally sweet and healthy, Strawberry Ghosts make a yummy goody. Dip fresh strawberries in natural yoghurt, add mini chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth, then pop in the freezer until the coating hardens.

Apple Mummies

Apple Mummies are easy-peasy and fun. Simply core the apple you intend to use, then cut portions of the peel off the apple while leaving strips of peel still in place. Add dried blueberries or mini chocolate chips for eyes. You’re done.

Silly Apple Bites

As hilarious as they are delicious, Silly Apple Bites are a snack destined to delight. Core and quarter a Granny Smith apple. Cut a mouth into each quarter, then coat the inside of the mouth with sunflower butter or Nutella. Place sunflower seeds along the top of the mouth for teeth, and a strawberry for a tongue. Make your own googly eyes or use mini chocolate chips for eyes.

Mandarin Pumpkins

Mandarin Pumpkins provide a happy dose of giggles with vitamin C. Peel a mandarin orange, and then stick a piece of a celery stalk in the center top to transform the mandarin into a pumpkin.

Frankenstein Kiwi

Fruity fun comes with Frankenstein Kiwi, another super easy and nutritious Halloween treat. Peel a kiwi, leaving a section of peel on the top as the hair. Add mini chocolate chips or dried blueberries for the eyes, and a small piece of pretzel for the mouth, all stuck in place with a dab of Nutella.
