13 Healthy Plant-Based Super Bowl Snack Ideas

Super Bowl time is almost here, and you can be a super hero by eating and serving healthy plant based snacks and appetizers while watching the game this year. Take a look at some of my easy healthy recipes, and see if any of these appetizers/snacks appeal to you.

If you are trying to eat healthier and more plant-based foods, why fall into old habits of unhealthy eating just because of the Super Bowl? 

There are good tasting healthy snacks that you can make that are low in fat, high in fiber and nutrients, and actually good for you.

Many of the traditional recipes for Super Bowl parties can be like train wrecks for your health with snacks and appetizers that are exceptionally high in fat, sugar, salt, cholesterol, additives, calories etc.  

Try some of these winning vegan gluten-free recipes this year . 

Low-fat Refried Black Bean Dip-(link to recipe)- Easy
Canned fat-free refried beans are available in most supermarkets.  I use the fat-free for this delicious low fat dip!! Paired with crudités, you can eat to your "heart-healthy" content.

I have to admit although I really love most of them- the delicious chocolate pudding (1 minute in the microwave) has my name on it!!


  1. Great ideas Judee, I especially like the Pineapple Salsa and the Baked Tortilla Strips. Looking forward to a great game!

  2. Great ideas — I might try some of them, though for a different occasion. Have fun at your Superbowl party.
    best, mae at

  3. I am not a super bowl friend, but I like eating! Yesterday I went for dinner with a friend, lovely. And I had chocolate pudding! Hugs!

  4. These look great! You always inspire me!

  5. These options look delicious!......Abrazotes, Marcela

  6. I would choose the salsa and homemade tortilla chips!

  7. Judy, these are some wonderful bowl ideas. Even though I am a non vegetarian but mostly I eat plant based (not vegan).

  8. I do ZERO for the Super Bowl because I don't do football and my TG a few years ago turned his back on the NFL for good and forever, BUT WOW these are some awesome recipes! I love the crudité with refried beans! Must try that! And pineapple salsa, and apple nachos??? WOW thanks for these ideas, Judee!!!! xoxo

  9. The pineapple salsa is very similar to a mango corn salsa that is a standard dish for summer meals. I love the presentation of the pineapple salsa in the pineapple. Also, the caprese is gorgeous. Love that dish.

  10. It's great to see a focus on healthy plant-based snacks for Super Bowl gatherings. These options sound not only delicious but also nutritious.

  11. Super Bowl, super hero; love that! You have so many refreshingly healthy options here. My favorites are the pineapple salsa and fruit salad. The presentation of the pineapple is beautiful! 🏈🍍

  12. Great snack ideas. We don't watch American Football here and the last time I watched was in 1989!

  16. These are some pretty amazing options to explore. I think I will try some of them on the next Super-Bowl gathering.

  17. Everything looks so healthy and delicious, but that pineapple salsa is really calling my name. I haven’t had that in years, but I remember really liking it. I had served it on top of salmon and it was wonderful.
