Happy Halloweeen! We are pumped to celebrate the spooky holiday. And while Oct. 31 is very much about skimpy outfits and crazy costume parties, we haven’t forgotten about the most important part: the candy. When we were younger, there was nothing better than dumping out our pillowcases after a long night of trick-or-treating to see our bounties, trade with our friends and stuff our faces until we crashed from our sugar high. As candy corn and Reese’s cups floated by in our dreams, we knew Halloween was the best.
But are annual candy comas a habit you should bring into your adult life? Despite the fact that Americans consume about 24 pounds of candy per person per year, the answer is a resounding “no.” With all the new information coming out about the adverse effects of sugar, eating too much Halloween candy is definitely something we should avoid. That doesn’t mean, however, that you have to give up on your treats entirely. Here are some healthy homemade alternatives to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Banana nice cream

Ice cream is pretty great, but it can be pretty high in fat and sugar. Banana “nice” cream is the health-food community’s worst-kept secret — a healthier alternative to everyone’s favorite treat that’s so good that you can’t tell the difference. Simply cut up one or two bananas and stick them in the freezer overnight. In the morning, blend with your choice of milk, and the rest is up to you! To make your “nice” cream extra creamy, blend in some nut butter. From here on out, it’s all based on preference. For different flavors, blend in some other frozen fruit, cacao powder, honey, vanilla extract or whatever else your heart desires. Then top with some fruit, dark chocolate or nuts and enjoy!
