5 Healthy Mother’s Day Party Snacks

Surprise your mother with these healthy snacks on 12th May celebrated as Mother’s day. Join her with the family and loved ones.

Four Ingredient Hummus Dip

A scrumptious, satisfying and healthy hummus should be a party staple. This recipe is super simple – garbanzo beans (Chickpeas), extra virgin olive oil, garlic, a pinch of salt (with optional chilli flakes) all blended up. To boost the nutritious value, I pair my super simple recipe with fresh baby carrots or cucumber sticks.

20-minute Oven Baked Vegetable Chips

Thinly sliced beetroot, sweet potato, and carrots make for a fun, tasty and healthy substitution to potato chips. I toss my sliced vegetables with olive oil, salt & pepper and bake them in the oven at 400 degree F for approx. 20 minutes. I flip them over halfway to ensure both sides are evenly crispy and golden brown. Serve these with a side of ketchup for a wonderful party snack.

Crunchy Cheesy Chickpeas

I drain and rinse a can of unsalted chickpeas and make sure to pat them all dry before I cook these to perfection. Into my skillet pan, I add a small amount of ghee (or oil) and stir in the chickpeas cooking them for about 15 minutes or so. Once they are cooked, I transfer them to a bowl where I sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt & pepper and occasionally a dusting of cumin. They are a surefire hit with children & grownups alike!

Mini Greek-yogurt Parfaits

Small espresso glasses make for the perfect vessel for these mouth-watering mini greek yogurt parfaits. I add (unsweetened) greek yogurt to fill the glasses 3/4 of the way. In a blender I blend greek yogurt and strawberries with a drizzle of (ethical) honey. I fill the rest of the glasses with this flavoured yogurt. To finish the look, I top the glass with a sliced strawberry and serve cold. The perfect party dessert.

Freshly Squeezed Blueberry Lemonade

A cool & refreshing drink to sip on whilst enjoying all the creative, fun party snacks! To make homemade lemonade, first warm the water and a little raw honey in a pot or saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the honey is dissolved and then remove from the heat. It should take about a minute. This is your simple honey syrup (as opposed to a simple syrup with white sugar). I, then add fresh blueberries to a sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat. I want the blueberries to break down and release their juices. They’ll also become a darker color in the process. Then, transfer the cooked blueberries to a fine mesh sieve and press through to get strained blueberry juice. Add 1/4 cup of the juice to the bottom of a glass, followed by our fresh lemonade, and then add some ice cubes to finish it off.

Happy Mother’s Day!
