We love kitchen tools, and what better gift to get your favorite foodie for the holidays? This year, we are sharing some of our favorite things in our healthy holiday gift guide.

Kitchen Gadgets:

  • Yonanas Ice Cream Maker: For a healthier twist on dessert, check out this Yonanas ice cream maker, which transforms frozen fruit into soft-serve ice cream, without the added sugar! Try frozen bananas for a creamy texture and enjoy alone or top with mini chocolate chips or shredded coconut — perfect for kids and adults alike!
  • Instant Pot Duo Pressure Cooker: Looking to cook more in the New Year, but worried about not having enough time? Check out the Instant Pot. There are a TON of uses for this tool – these are some of our FEED favorites:

Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs – Great for a quick breakfast or an easy protein at lunch. Make the perfect boiled egg every time!

Whole Roasted Chicken – Pull apart chicken for a salad topper, pizza ingredient, or a protein-packed addition to a quick soup dinner. Perfect your weeknight meal with this easy cooking method.

Quick Chickpeas (or any other dried beans) – We are loving any way to make plant-based diets easy, without the added salt acquired from canned beans.

Kettle Corn – Fiber-filled snacking can’t get any easier. We love this tasty way to make a healthier version of a whole-grain favorite.

  • 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer: Guacamole, avocado toast, heart-healthy dips…the list goes on for uses for one of FEED’s favorite fruits – the avocado! This nifty gadget lets you open and slice quickly and safely so you can get to your favorite avocado recipes faster.
