Christmas Eve Delights: Guilt-Free Snack Options

When you have friends and relatives over, healthy snacks are essential. WF offers a wide range of healthy and delicious options.

Summer Yule a registered dietitian and nutrition communication specialist, provides us with an exciting, innovative, healthy and easy-to-make treat to enjoy on a platter.

Caprese skewers can be made by alternately placing mini mozzarella balls, grape tomatos, and basil leaves onto small skewers. This colourful snack is perfect for the holidays. It features red, green, and white.
If you buy cooked shrimp, Shrimp Cocktail is one of the easiest snacks to make. Thaw the shrimp and then serve it with sauce. Low in calories, but packed with filling proteins. It is also delicious!
Decorate with sprinkles in gold. This dessert has fewer calories than many chocolate-based treats.
We have many more healthy recipes by nutritionists and other experts.

Chocolate Almond Fruit Kabobs
Fruit kabobs can be easy to make, healthy and delicious. They are also a great option for the winter months, as you can use frozen fruit.

This recipe allows you to change the fruit. You can use other fruits and/or berries in place of the strawberries, banana, and kiwi.

Dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa): 100 g
Strawberry, banana, and kiwi peeling + slicing
Break the chocolate bar up into smaller pieces. Add them to a small pan.
Stir the chocolate frequently with a wooden spoon over low heat until it is completely melted.
Double boilers can be used to melt chocolate.
Fill the bottom pot up with water, and place the chocolate in a bowl which fits snugly over the pot. (Make sure that the water doesn’t touch the bowl.) Stirring constantly, cook over low heat until the chocolate has melted.
Prep the fruit while the soup is cooking by removing the tops from the strawberries, peeling and slicing kiwi, and slicing a banana.
Alternate the banana, strawberry and kiwi between each bamboo skewer. Sprinkle chopped almonds on top of your kabobs, and drizzle the melted dark chocolate over them.
