Halloween is a holiday well known for its candy, spooky costumes, and hyperactive children. While consuming sweet treats in moderation is fine, it’s not ideal to have loads of leftover holiday candy around the house, which is why we love our adorable Jack O’Lanterns made from all-natural ingredients! These eye catching treats are filled with fresh fruit and skyr, an Icelandic dairy product, which makes it the perfect snack to serve at a Halloween party. Light on sugar, high in protein and nutrients, and rich in flavor, these spooky Jack O’Lanterns will have your guests falling head over heels in love with each bite they take.

Skyr Filled Jack O’Lantern Oranges
1 cup oranges
1 cup strawberries, washed and diced
1 cup banana, diced
2-3 tablespoons orange juice
1 container plain Skyr
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Medium sized mixing bowl
With a pairing knife, cut a small horizontal slice on the bottom of each orange so it stands straight up. Then, cut a 4 ” slice on the opposite side for the removable top.
Spoon out the orange and pulp. Place the oranges onto a cutting board, and slice the oranges into small pieces. Place in a medium sized mixing bowl.
Add the strawberries, banana, orange juice, skyr yogurt, and cinnamon in the mixing bowl, and combine well with a spatula. Set aside.
On the orange peels, use a market to outline faces for different pumpkin designs. Use a pairing knife to cut out the designs.
Spoon fruit mixture into the jack-o’-lanterns, and sprinkle with mint leaves, if desired.
