S’mores are the quintessential campfire or cookout dessert, but they don’t have to be off-limits if you are trying to eat better.

Follow our tips to see how!

Campfire S'mores

August 10th is National S’mores Day and we’ve got a way for everyone in your family to enjoy this sweet treat!

Traditional Recipe but Tweaked Ingredients: Swap out a few ingredients for more nutritious versions. Dark chocolate amps up the healthy factor as it contains heart-healthy antioxidants. Combine with reduced fat graham crackers and enjoy!

Healthy S’more Substitutes: Another idea is to use an apple slice base for the crackers, and top with low-fat and/or nondairy cream cheese sweetened with honey as a replacement for marshmallows. For the chocolate, you could use carob chips, chocolate-hazelnut spread or dark cocoa powder.

Nutritious Add-Ins: To make s’mores a healthier option, add berries, pears, peaches, pineapples, figs, raisins or bananas. Fire perfectly caramelizes the fruit, making for a sweet healthy taste. Or sprinkle some chia seeds, coconut flakes or toasted nuts over your s’mores.

Variations on a Theme: Split open a banana; leave it in the peel and slightly smoosh the insides with a fork. Sprinkle with mini marshmallows and dark chocolate, wrap in foil and heat on the campfire or grill.

Top brownie batter hummus with marshmallows and place in a 350° oven for about 15 minutes or until the marshmallows are toasty brown. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs and serve.

Use rice cakes as the base, then top with dark chocolate chunks and low fat marshmallow crème. Air fry for a few moments until melted.

Whichever tip you follow, you can create s’mores that deliver all the gooey goodness with none of the guilt!
