10 Healthy Halloween Recipes for your Brunch

healthy-halloween-recipe-for-a-brunch

We’re already at the end of October and as per the Christian calendar All Saints Day is approaching. The eve of this religious festival is know as Halloween, which has roots in pagan origins and it’s related with Celtic traditions.

In Italy when I was little, Halloween was basically unheard of, just as it was here in Spain. However, in recent years, as with many other american traditions, its popularity has been growing – so much so that now it’s quite common, as much among children as among adults.

I suppose that as I write a blog about brunch, a tradition typically regarded as coming from the English-speaking world, it makes sense for me to write about Halloween. And so here I am, ready to give you tips for some healthy Halloween recipes for your brunch.


On my Halloween-brunch pinterest board you’ll find a load of recipes, but here I’m just going to include the healthiest – because even on a festive occasion, we need to keep looking after our bodies.

1. Frozen boo-nanas

These bananas remind me of the “choco-banano” that I tried in Guatemala, but these ones are just cuter and scarier:

10+1. Chocolate-mousse tombs

This recipe is an addition to the list because I promised you 10 healthy Halloween recipes and this one is an intruder. But it’s chocolate so enough said.

“Seeking the right balance” is my new motto, so how bad can it be to eat a little chocolate alongside so much healthy food? If this is what your body is asking you, just give it to him, as long as it’s in moderation, your body will thank you for it
