It’s hard to believe that Halloween is almost here! Kids everywhere are likely pondering their costume of choice while imagining the assorted sweets and treats they will collect.

Here are a few ideas for festive and healthy alternatives perfect for hungry trick-or-treaters, Halloween parties, and fall events!
Skip The Tricks With These Treats!
- Spider Web Brownies: Convert your favorite chocolate brownie recipe into a healthy Halloween treat by substituting butter with our Tropical Plantation organic virgin coconut oil. This tasty alternative is excellent for baking, is rich in antioxidants, and eliminates butter’s high calories, fat, and sodium. You can also use coconut oil to create a delicious and creamy frosting perfect for making creepy spider webs!
- Spooktacular Punch: What superhero or princess could say no to a spooky beverage to celebrate Halloween? Pull out your punch bowl and create a yummy punch using EcoDrink Naturals! Designed to promote hydration and boost immunity, these delicious drink mixes are the perfect way to increase water intake while getting your vitamins at the same time! Available in an assortment of flavors that kids love (including fruit punch!), this healthy punch will make the perfect “party drink” for kiddos four and up. To create the “spooky” factor, add bugs (e.g., frozen raisins or blueberries), or place your punch bowl in a larger bowl of water and dry ice pellets for a smoky effect!
- Jack-O-Lantern Cookies: Cookies are always a hit with little ones, and you can’t go wrong with this Halloween favorite. Modify your favorite sugar cookie recipe with our coconut oil. Your cookies will turn out moist and delicious, with a subtle hint of coconut flavor! Use a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter and a plant-based food color to create the orange frosting. This fun option allows the young chefs in your house to try their hand at cookie decorating!
