Healthy Halloween Snack #2: Pumpkin Fruit


Here is our second out of 5 healthy Halloween snacks. We have loads of fun making this snack. It’s a Pumpkin Fruit snack made with oranges and stuffed with banana, apples, and grapes. Our favorite part is carving the jack-o-lantern faces on each orange. It’s fun and so much easier than a real pumpkin. : )



To make 2 you will need:

2 oranges, 1 banana, 1 apple  or some grapes.



1. Cut up the banana and apple into bite sized pieces. Set aside.

2. Carefully cut a circle out of the skin of the top of the oranges. Remove the top circle as best you can without ripping it. spoon out the orange fruit. You can either discard the orange fruit/pulp or cut it up and add it to the fruit. If you use it, you can omit 1 of your other fruits.

3. Using a knife, cut out pumpkin faces in your oranges.

4. Pour the bananas and apples into the hollowed-out oranges. Top with the orange lid. Voila! You now have super cute edible jack-o-lanterns.

  1. I’m so happy to see this pumpkin fruit has no pumpkin,lol. I just like my pumpkins for decoration so it’s great to in a way have “my pumpkin” and eat it too!

  3. What a great non-candy Halloween treat, and I love that you can “customize” the fruit selection to each child’s preferences! Thanks for sharing such a great idea.
