Are you trying to think of healthy Halloween themed treats to serve at your KES Clubs, at home and special events this week? If yes, I have the perfect recipe for you….and if you weren’t planning on doing something special, you’ll want to now!
Try these Boo-nana Ghosts!! The children will love them…they’re fun, delicious, nutritious and simply “spooktacular!!”
- Vanilla yogurt
- Popsicle sticks
Spread parchment or wax paper on two baking sheets. Open carton of yogurt and stir it well to remove any lumps. Cut each banana in half (one at a time so they don’t brown). Insert the popsicle stick into the cut end. Dip the banana half into the yogurt container. Pull it out and let any excess yogurt drip off. Place two small blueberries on it for eyes, and one for the mouth. Lay it on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bananas. Place baking sheets in freezer and freeze for several hours or until solid. Keep frozen until ready to eat.
