Healthy snacks usually conjure up not-so-delicious images, and it’s a common misconception that healthy food can’t be delicious. And it’s worse at parties when everyone just wants to indulge in junk food without worrying.
People say that healthy snacks aren’t as good as the usual kind, but there are several healthy snack brands on the market now, except they can get a bit pricey if you want a lot of food for a party.
But instead of buying snacks, you can DIY healthy snacks that look amazing for any occasion. Here are a few simple recipes for easy festive parties.
How to make hummus
All you need is chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, ground cumin, salt, and if you have it, tahini. You can use canned or cooked chickpeas, with one and a half cups doing the trick.
The best method is to use a food processor for extra power. Just add ¼ cup tahini and ¼ cup lemon juice and blend them until smooth and creamy. Next, add a single minced garlic clove, two tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, ½ teaspoon ground cumin, and some salt.
Mix the spices and finally, add the chickpeas and turn on the food processor for a good minute until you have a smooth paste. The gradual addition of ingredients ensures its perfection.
Hummus is in the healthy snacks for weight loss category, and it’s easy to make, making it a great party food.
How to make bruschetta
This Italian dish is perfect as an appetizer or healthy snack, and it’s one of the best healthy snack choices. And since it’s so easy, it’s perfect as a party snack.
You can make bruschetta simple as a quick snack or elevate it using the right ingredients to make a fancy restaurant-worthy version.
You’ll need extra virgin olive oil, Roma tomatoes, minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, French bread, fresh basil, parmesan cheese, salt (preferably kosher salt), and pepper.
All you need to do is toast the bread on both sides and saute the chopped tomatoes with garlic. Then, toss the rest of the ingredients and add the cooled tomatoes and oil base to the mix. Finally, lay the mix onto the toasted bread, garnishing with extra shredded parmesan.
CNY snacks need to be quick and easy to make to keep up with the many guests, which is why this recipe is perfect.
How to make pigs in a blanket
Healthy snacks for kids can be hard to find if you have picky toddlers, but pigs in a blanket are deceptively easy and have ingredients any child will love.
Another quick recipe, all you need is crescent rolls. You can get store-bought ones or make your own dough beforehand. If you have bigger triangles, cut each into three smaller ones lengthwise.
Get cocktail sausages and place them on the thicker side, rolling towards the other end. Bake for around 20 minutes or until golden brown in a preheated oven. You can also season with Italian spices, sesame seeds, or a garlic wash.
The sky’s the limit for dips. And you can choose the classic mustard and ketchup combo or dressings like ranch or barbecue sauce.
You aren’t limited to simple sausages; you can get a herb or chicken version to elevate your dish. Simple and easy snacks like these are perfect for a kids’ party.
How to make no-bake frozen cheesecake
Healthy snack recipes don’t really conjure up images or cheesecake, but you’d be surprised by how good a no-bake frozen cheesecake is.
For the base, you’ll need 1 cup of crushed graham crackers and ½ cup each of pecans and pretzel sticks for the perfect sweet and salty mix. All you must do is mix these with 1 stick of melted butter and press them to the bottom of your container.
For the filling, beat three ounces of cream cheese for three minutes, add 14 ounces of condensed milk and beat for the same amount of time. Next, fold in 8 ounces of frozen whipped cream topping and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and add on top of the crust.
You can make the dessert in small individual ramekins or a large one in a spring form pan. Garnish with fresh berries like blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and chopped strawberries for delicious party snacks.
