Right now you may have be having visions of sugar-plums dancing in your head, but maybe you should have some healthy Christmas recipes in there, too! Of course, all recipes here are fully vegetarian friendly. Here are my top three tree go-to’s that are sure to please your friends and family this holiday season.
Healthy Christmas Recipes: Spinach Artichoke Frittata Trees
If there is anything I love in this world, it is spinach and parmesan cheese. Why not combine them to make these wonderful, vegetarian-friendly frittatas for Christmas! Most of these items may already be in your kitchen, the only thing that you’ll need is a special silicone mold to shape the trees. Fry up the garlic and spinach, mix it into the batter and bake. That’s pretty much all you’ll need to do for this one! Thanks to Hungry Happenings for the recipe and image!
Healthy Christmas Recipes: Yogurt Christmas Tree Cakes
These aren’t cakes so much as they are frozen yogurt bars. After all, cakes aren’t all that healthy, are they? The two main things you will need are low-fat vanilla yogurt and lime Jell-O packages. Use the same Christmas tree mold from the spinach artichoke frittata trees to form the shape of these cute little cakes. Everything after this point is a snap! Decorate the little trees anyway you like with sprinkles, coconut shreds, or bits of fruit. Boom. Healthy Christmas recipes for both you and the kids to enjoy!

Healthy Christmas Recipes: Hummus Trees
These little trees are about as healthy as healthy Christmas recipes can get. All you need is some pita bread, hummus, colorful toppings and a pretzel stick for the trunk. Although the picture here shows avocado hummus, you can use any kind of green hummus you can think of. I personally love this roasted garlic spinach hummus. For “ornament” toppings, you can use peppers, pimentos, bits of cheese, or anything else that you can manage to dream up! Thanks to Comeback Momma for the idea and image!
