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! 
 

 

 

Healthy Halloween trails!
