Is your snack time calling for a little bit of holiday spirit? These healthy snacks were created to bring smiles from everyone at the table. Fun with Christmas Food 2021 Edition has wreaths, trees, snowmen, and reindeer...all created using whole foods! They're vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free snacks to make your holiday season bright.
I had so much fun with last year's Fun with Food: Christmas Edition and festive Christmas Pancakes that I decided to make a whole new round of winter snacks for this year! Seeing you make these treats and have fun with your little ones in the kitchen is a total highlight of my holiday season. My family celebrates Hanukkah, but with all the buzz around Christmas time, we still have fun getting in the holiday spirit and naming all the cute characters and symbols that pop up in December. This Fun with Christmas Food post has wreaths, trees, reindeer, and snowmen, all created out of healthy ingredients and fun, festive touches.
Fun with Christmas Food: 2021 Edition!
Reindeer Energy Bites
I don't think I ever realized just how cute my energy bites could be! Adding pretzel antlers, eyes made from Cheerios and vegan chocolate chips, and a red raspberry nose created the sweetest little Rudolph ready to join in the reindeer games. My No-Bake Date Coconut Energy Bites are lighter in color, so I added cocoa powder to turn them reindeer-brown. They're the perfect start to this Fun with Christmas Food!
Fun with Christmas Food Banana Snowmen
Look at these holly jolly little banana snowmen! These are especially fun if you live somewhere warm and don't get enough snow to make a snowman. Just blast Frosty on the Alexa and you can assemble your own festive snow buddies no matter the weather! This is made with all fruits that are easy to cut, which makes it perfect for younger kids to practice (safe and supervised!) knife skills.
Christmas Fruit Tree
I am absolutely in love with all of the colors in this Fun with Christmas Food apple tree. From the pineapple star to the Vegan Caramel Sauce (or Almond Butter or Healthy Homemade Nutella!) garland, the berry and pomegranate ornaments to the shredded coconut snow, it's all just so sweet. This would be delicious to serve with a bowl of my Creamy Vegan Cinnamon Vanilla Fruit Dip!
Christmas Pita Trees with Hummus
How cute are these little pita trees?! This is one of the simplest Fun with Christmas Food options. All you need is some kind of green dip or spread! I've used Green Hummus, Zucchini Hummus (no chickpeas in this one!), or even Guacamole for an easy Christmas tree base. Once you have a tree with a pretzel trunk, you can deck the halls! Use cut up bell pepper or any other diced veggies you have in the kitchen. This is a really fun one for kids to help with because they can "decorate" their own trees!
Christmas Veggie Wreath Platter with Vegan French Onion Dip
This French Onion Dip was a new addition to the blog this year, and it's instantly become a favorite! I am always making extra Caramelized Onions and Vegan Sour Cream to have a batch of this dip in the house. It's incredible with chips, crackers, and of course...veggies! It's super easy to get creative with your favorites and turn them into a holiday wreath surrounding a bowl of this delicious dip. I used broccoli, cucumber, peas. radishes, cherry tomatoes, and a bell pepper bow! It's a Fun with Christmas Food Wreath!
