Written by: Famous Foods | 2020-12-14 | no comments

The holiday season is the time of year for family gatherings and delicious food, and you can give everyone’s taste buds even more reason to celebrate by offering the best treats. Some of the tastiest holiday treats are easy to make and can satisfy just about anyone’s holiday food craving without adding a lot of extra calories or sugar to their diet.

Here are some tasty and healthy holiday treats that you can try making this season:

Banana Bread

Banana bread can be a healthy and delicious holiday treat that can make everyone feel a little warmer on a cold day. Whole-wheat flour instead of refined flour can be used to make the banana bread even healthier. If you find a banana bread recipe that calls for a lot of sugar, try using honey or maple syrup to sweeten the bread instead. Unrefined oil can also be a healthier ingredient substitute for butter.

Angel Food Cake

This healthier alternative to the traditional holiday cheese or fruit cake can add more heavenly joy to the holiday season. Angel food cake can either be prepared at home by following a recipe that lists healthy ingredients or bought prepared in a store. The cake can be topped with raspberries and fresh lime juice to give it more flavour.

Mini Date-Nut Snowballs

In just 10 minutes, you can prepare these festive holiday treats. Simply combine some pitted dried dates with some small raw almonds in a food processor and add a bit of ground cinnamon and unsweetened shredded coconut to the mix. The mixture can then be rolled into small balls to create these bite-sized edibles.

Chocolate Cuties

If you or any of your guests are in the mood for something that has a citrusy or chocolate flavour, these holiday snacks will be the perfect fit. Simply divide some mandarin oranges into segments and dip a portion of each segment into a mixture of melted semisweet chocolate and coconut oil to make the chocolate cuties. The treats will then be ready to serve after they’ve been refrigerated for 20 minutes to firm. Flaky sea salt can also be sprinkled onto the treats for additional taste.

These treats are sure to make the holiday season more special for everyone. Famous Foods has everything you need to serve the right snacks at your holiday gathering in Vancouver, and you can check out the selections that are available by visiting www.famousfoods.ca.
