A REAL TREAT

When my tween declared he was done with trick-or-treating and just wanted to hang out at home with a buddy instead, I came up with these smoothies for their new Halloween treat.  For those not dressing up and gathering treats on Halloween (my son's there, but not so sure about my husband), these smoothies are the way to go.  They are sweet and celebratory in fun Halloween colors of orange, green & purple - with 0% artificial anything.  No candy wrappers involved.  Just fruit (and even some kale!) with some plant milk - what could be better? 

These smoothies can be for trick-or-treaters, too.  If you're not looking forward to watching your kiddos pound, well, pound after pound of candy, you may want to try giving these smoothies out before they get that far.  Sure, the kids may still eat candy, but it's possible they won't want as much of it after guzzling these fruit-sweetened concoctions.  Possible, not guaranteed.  But possible!  Sweet!

So you're not sure you'll have time to make these on a busy Halloween?  No worries, we've got you.  These Halloween smoothies only require 7 different ingredients and are ready within 15 minutes!  You can make them between doorbell rings.  Colorful smoothies are super fun for a Halloween party, too, by the way.  The ultimate sweet trick.  Bonus:  They happen to be really tasty with a little something extra in them for adults, if ya know what I mean.  We want our treats, too.

METHOD

  1. Place the frozen mango and 2/3 cup almond milk into a high-speed blender.  Blend until smooth.  Use the tamper on your blender if needed, or add a little more milk (up to 3/4 cup total).  More milk means more smoothie, but less thick.  Pour the orange mixture evenly into two skull (or other 16 oz) mason jars until the jars are about 1/3 full.  
  2. To the orange mixture remaining in the blender, add the kale, one date, and 1/2 the banana, and about 1/4 cup milk.  Blend until smooth, then pour the green mixture over the orange mixture in the two jars until they are 2/3 full.  Have some extra?  That's for you.  Or a sibling.  Or your spouse.  Or later.
  3. Give the blender a quick rinse, then place the frozen berries, other date, remaining 1/2 banana, açai pack, and 3/4 cup milk into the blender and blend until smooth.  Pour this purple mixture over the green mixture until the jars are filled.  
  4. Enjoy!  (PS for the grownups:  These smoothies are great with a little kick!  Rum, vodka, tequila - whatever you enjoy for yourself once the little ghosts and goblins have had their fun.
