HALLOWEEN GUACAMONSTERS

Halloween GuacaMonsters. The best kind of food for this time of year especially when the leaves are changing color, the air has gotten cooler, and Halloween is just around the corner. Not only are they a spooky holiday-themed treat, they can also be used as a portable, on-the-go snack. Just scoop out the flesh of the avocado, turn into guacamole, place back into the avocado shell, and make one (or all) of your favorite Halloween GuacaMonsters.

Throw some fresh veggies and/or chips into a bag, grab a spoon and you’re off. Your kids can eat this in the car on their way to their soccer game (or wherever they are headed to)! Finally a treat that is actually full of good-for-you nutrients (without any refined sugar) that you can feel good about feeding to your kids AND is Halloween-themed. That is what I call a win-win situation. Go mom and dad, go!
