I’ll be the first to admit that some of my healthy-eating tendencies go right out the door on and around Christmas (our Christmas morning tradition involves popping a bunch of those giant Pillsbury cinnamon rolls into the oven–total heaven, and I wouldn’t give the tradition up for the world).
But, of course, not all holiday foods are unhealthy. And, in fact, some of them are also adorable. Like, really ridiculously adorable and festive in the way that you won’t even think about the fact they’re actually pretty good for you, too!
This candy cane milkshake is low-fat and sugar-free (it has cottage cheese and vanilla pudding in it!).

You can healthify this pizza as much as you like (add less cheese, put on a ton of veggies, use a thin crust)–or don’t! Really, the Santa hat pepperonis are the best part.
