Watch Me Make a Healthy Hummus Santa

Let me show you how to make this Santa hummus and veggie board!

What Do I Need to Make a Healthy Santa Snack Board?

  • Plain hummus
  • Large pitted black olives
  • 30 cherry tomatos, divided
  • Red bell peppers
  • Fresh mini mozzarella balls
  • Cauliflower florets
  • Club crackers
  • Broccoli florets
  • lipped white plate
  • Large serving tray

How to Make a Santa Snack Board

  • To make Santa, simply spread your favorite plain hummus onto a round, lipped white plate and place it in the center of the board. Press two large black olives for his eyes, a cherry tomato for his nose and the 1/2 of a top of a red bell pepper for his smile.
  • To make his hat, layer red bell peppers above the plate toward the top right corner of the board then add mini mozzarella balls to the top as the ball of his hat. Line the bottom of the hat with mini mozzarella balls as well, which will be the top of the hummus covered plate.
  • Arrange cauliflower for Santa’s beard, mustache and eyebrows. If your kiddos claim they don’t like cauliflower, serving it as the big guys’s beard may have them singing a different tune. 😉

  • Place the remaining black olives, except for one, at the bottom of the board, around the cauliflower beard to look like Santa’s belt. Stack 3 club crackers topped with a black olive cut in half for his belt buckle.
  • Finish by filling the board with cherry tomatoes, broccoli and club crackers.

  1. Our Santa Snack Board was A Big Hit at Our Family Christmas get together❣️ Everyone Loved It ♥️
    The great healthy snacks and the adorable festive decoration of Santa 🎅🏼 Ho❣️Ho❣️Ho❣️

    1. Hi Uma! Our family loves raw vegetables like broccoli, carrots, celery, cauliflower and tomatoes. We serve them with hummus or another dip for dipping into. It’s a quick and easy way to enjoy veggies often. You could certainly blanch or steam the veggies before eating them, if you wish. Hope this helps. Enjoy!
