Healthy Halloween

Halloween is here and in a time fueled by sugary treats, today I'm here with an easy, healthy and perfectly themed Halloweentime snack created by Dole. From now until October 31st, Dole's Healthy Halloween Initiative spotlights recipes, serving suggestions and other holiday fun for the whole family all featuring nutritious and healthy options for this spooky season. After all, as scary as 2020 ended up being, festive and healthy fun is more important than ever this year! 

With a focus on better for you ingredients like whole grains, fruits and veggies, Dole has crafted up a variety of recipes that will take your Halloween to the next level!

Ghost Bananas

Today I'm sharing Dole's Ghost Bananas recipe with you. It's a simple, yet perfectly ghoulish snack for anyone. With just a few ingredients and some easy to follow steps, you'll end up with a spooky treat that the whole family will enjoy!


  • 1/4 cup vanilla lowfat yogurt 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • 3 DOLE® Bananas 
  • 6 lollipop sticks 
  • 18 semi-sweet chocolate chips, regular and/or mini chips 
  • Floral Foam or Styrofoam

  1. Place yogurt in shallow plate and place coconut on a piece of wax paper.
  2. Cut bananas in half, crosswise. Insert lollipop stick into the cut end of each banana.
  3. Roll bananas in yogurt until coated. Roll in coconut, picking up edges of wax paper to help coat each banana with coconut. Press chocolate chips at pointed end of bananas to make the face. Press sticks into Styrofoam to display.

Making Mummies: Unwrap fruit leather and cut crosswise in half. Wrap one piece of fruit leather around one banana leaving the top open for the eyes. Press chocolate chips for eyes. Press mummies into Styrofoam to display.

Boo to You and Happy Halloween!

There you have it! A super easy, healthy and spooktacular Halloween snack for the season. Not only are these Ghost Bananas adorable, but they taste amazing, too! It's the perfect blend of sweetness and it's the perfect snack to make your family go "BOO!!!" in a good way. 😉
