Float ice cubes made from pomegranate juice in a fruit smoothie (like the Cabbage Berry one below) for a special “love potion” your sweetie is sure to enjoy.
Cabbage and Berry Purple Smoothie
Use cabbage and blueberries’ natural hues to make a lovely purple smoothie for your love.
Whole-Wheat Cranberry Applesauce Muffins
Whether you have a special someone, children who love cute food, or just want to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day, these muffins are the perfect breakfast treat. Using whole-wheat flour makes them extra heart-healthy.
All you need are a handful of cherub tomatoes and another handful of baby carrots. Slice them on the diagonal, then flip one side and reconnect it. The carrots need toothpicks, but the tomatoes just stick to themselves. Viola – a salad sure to delight all the senses!
Yogurt- Covered Strawberries
You can make these delectable treats by dipping strawberries (halved or whole) in vanilla Greek yogurt, then put them on a sheet pan lined with parchment or wax paper and freezing. So simple and enjoyable!
No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Fresh Fruit Skewers

Valentine’s Day Salad
Add a Valentine’s Day touch to a traditional Caprese salad by cutting the mozzarella into heart-shaped slices.
Not only is this strawberry applesauce deliciously sweet and flavorful, but it’s also the perfect color for Valentine’s Day! And best of all, it couldn’t be easier to make. It would make a great gift for teachers, neighbors, or co-workers in a mason jar with some cute fabric or ribbon.
Red Beet Pancakes
Adding red beets to pancakes is a fun and healthy Valentine’s Day breakfast idea. Nutritious, delicious, and gorgeous!
These heart-shaped hardboiled eggs would make a great Valentine’s Day snack in your loved-ones lunch box.
We love the idea of giving out fruit instead of candy this Valentine’s Day! These adorable fruit tags will surely make your Valentine feel special. Use whole fruit wrapped in little bags or applesauce squeeze pouches.
Black Bean Fudge
Black-bean fudge is a vegan-friendly, gluten-free take on traditional chocolate fudge. Not only is it healthy and tasty, but also it’s incredibly easy to make, can be stored in the fridge or the freezer, and would make for an awesome homemade gift this Valentine’s Day. For that extra special someone, put fudge in a heart-shaped tin.
For a non-edible Valentine’s Day gift, use a veggie stamp to make your sweetie a special card.
We love the idea of using natural vegetable dyes to make a card for your valentine!
