Wickedly Delicious Halloween Smoothies

So I’m finally in Halloween-food-creating mode. Only one week to go! There are lots of recipes out there for interesting, vegan Halloween treats but I wanted something different. I don’t want to make cookies that look like bloody, severed fingers. I don’t want to make anything that looks like floating eyeballs or gooey brains. Sorry, I just have a thing about eating fake body parts, even if it’s all in good fun.

I prefer the playful, cute things about Halloween instead of the scary, ghoulish things. And playing with lively colors is a great way to make many traditional foods into Halloween-worthy creations… like these delicious and nutritious smoothies!

Ingredients:

~ for the purple/red layer

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1½ cups cherry or pomegranate juice

~ for the orange layer

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 carrot, chopped into 1″ pieces
  • 1 cup coconut water

~ for the green layer

  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup chopped greens, such as spinach or kale (I used kale)
  • 2 tsp green powder, such as powdered barley grass juice or spirulina
  • 1 cup coconut water

Directions:

  1. Blend each color’s ingredients and set each aside.
  2. Assemble your smoothie glasses pouring each color in on top of the other. 
  3. Swirl gently with a straw or knife to slightly blend the colors.
Makes three 12 oz. smoothies. Enjoy!

Healthy Halloween trails,
