Healthy Spring Snack Cups – Perfect for Easter!

Healthy Spring Snack Cups

I love celebrating holidays and seasons with fun foods. It’s also important to our family to stay committed to healthy eating. Sure we splurge now and then. For fun daily after school treats and such, I try keep it both fun and nutrition packed. These Healthy Spring Snack cups are a great alternative to “Dirt & Worms” for parties too.

Healthy Spring Snack Cups

supplies

Ingredients:
• 1 tub (7 oz.) of your favorite original hummus
• 1 package of baby carrots
• 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa
• (optional) celery stock leaves

Supplies Needed:
• A sharp kitchen knife
• Clear plastic cups (found at Dollar Tree)

Healthy Spring Snack cups

Directions:

1. Using a spoon, fill your plastic cup with the hummus. (1) 7 oz. tub will fill 1 cup entirely to the top. For kids, I purchase smaller sized cups to be able to make several. Otherwise, buy the bulk container.

2. Use a spoon or small food strainer to spread the unsweetened cocoa on the top of the hummus. This will be your “dirt”.
3. Take the pointed end of a knife and hollow out a small hole in the top of a baby carrot.
4. Place a bit of hummus into the hole and place one of the celery leaves in it. This will make it look like a real carrot. (This step is optional)
5. Serve with additional carrots or your favorite pita chips for a delicious and nutritious treat!

These really are so easy that even the kids can assemble them themselves! What are your favorite healthy snacks and treats to serve this time of year?
Enjoy!
