Healthy Swaps for Your Favorite Easter Treats

March 21, 2016 | By | Comments (1)

Easter, like any holiday, cannot be properly celebrated without sweet treats. Unfortunately, many store-bought favorites we might have grown up with are just crazy high in fat and sugar. Cadbury creme eggs? Just forget it! One egg alone is 20 grams of sugar and 150 calories. The following suggestions are healthier swaps to popular Easter candies, but still keep in mind the primal desire to eat every little candy inside those darned plastic eggs.

Chocolate Bunny MMs

Instead of: Milk Chocolate Easter Bunny
Try: 1 cup popcorn + 1/4 cup Easter M&M’s candies

Cadbury Creme Egg

Instead of: Cadbury Creme Eggs
Try: 1 cup Siggi’s Yogurt + 2 teaspoon lemon curd + 10 dark chocolate chips

Reese Egg PB

Instead of: Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg
Try: Ohio Buckeyes

Peeps Marshmallow

Instead of: Marshmallow Peeps
Try: Lemon-White Chocolate Chewy Crispy Bars (+ 1 tablespoon of Easter sprinkles!)

Fruit Leather vs Jellybeans
Instead of: Easter Jellybeans
Try: Apple Fruit Leather
