With Christmas approaching, it’s time to start thinking about festive treats! Before you dive head-first into your sofa and snuggle up, you’re going to need to cook up some Christmas cheer, because the holiday season isn’t the same without delicious snacks at the table. Remember, go easy on the calories by making your snacks healthy. Here are our super tasty picks:
Gluten-free gingerbread men
Your healthy holiday needs gluten free gingerbread men! They are great for baking with children, making for a lovely homemade Christmas treat for all the family. Gluten-free gingerbread men are low in calories and far healthier all-around, especially when compared to some of the usual festive snacks.
Healthy Mince Pies
Mince Pies are a true classic at Christmas. This year, why not make them a little bit healthier? Indulge in your sweet tooth with low-calorie mince pies. There’s no doubt they’ll be a big hit in your home. When backing, steer clear of icing and use more fruits for extra fiber. You just can’t beat mince pies at Christmas.
This is a quick and easy snack that’s perfect for the kids to enjoy. It doesn’t require any baking and can be made in big batches if you’ve got the family coming over this weekend. To make Grinch kabobs, all you need are strawberries, green grapes, mini marshmallows, and skewers. The result is a ‘Grinch-like’ fruit snack that’s fun and healthy.
Even though Christmas isn’t the season for strawberries, these little Santa treats are super healthy. Slice the tops of some strawberries to make the ‘hat’, add some cream cheese and then place a couple of raisins or black cumin seeds for the ‘eyes’. Santa strawberries are very easy to put together and make for a fun little dessert that kids will love to make.
