Holiday Treats

‘Tis the season for goodies galore! While we are enjoying the joy and warmth of the holidays with loved ones, it’s easy to get filled up on sugary sweets and high-fat treats. You can get in the holiday spirit and make healthy choices at the same time. Try out some of these tasty ideas below.

  • Add fruit, like berries, bananas, or a cherry, to some ice cream - that you make yourself! Shake things up by making Ice Cream in a Bag. Bonus: this recipe can give you a great workout! For a quicker dairy treat, try a Pumpkin Parfait. Add in some nuts or Cheerios for crunch.
  • Did someone say baked goods? Fire up the oven and try these Sweet Potato and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars or make a quick Rise and Shine Cobbler in the microwave!
  • Kids love to make s’mores! Help them make these Strawberry S’mores. For a more festive look, use strawberry low-fat yogurt.
  • Swap out some soda, punch, or hot chocolate for a refreshing glass of water. Try spicing up your water by adding in apples, fresh cranberries, or mint. Don’t forget to stay hydrated during the holidays!
