Green Smoothies

Calling all ghouls and goblins. Enjoy a healthy Halloween with this “green monster” or “witches’ brew” smoothie — a tasty alternative to the sugary drinks and sweet treats that are sure to tempt your family this month.

This leafy greens recipe won’t spook the pickiest eaters, either. The Frankenstein-like color makes it fun to drink veggies. And, once capes and masks are retired, you can keep enjoying the smoothie for a nutrient-packed breakfast or an afternoon snack. It’s full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutritents, protein, and calcium (which you can boost with our multi powder).

Ingredients for Ghoulish (and Everyday) Green Smoothies

  • 2 cups raw organic kale, roughly chopped (organic spinach is also a substitute)
  • 1/3 cup organic raspberries
  • 1/3 cup organic strawberries, quartered
  • 6 oz. organic Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp. organic raw honey or molasses

Directions

Blend all ingredients. Add filtered water as needed to help the process. If you like a frozen drink, use frozen fruit or freeze your fresh kale after washing. Serve in festive cups or drink through a silly straw!

      1. Not a smoothie, but I do have a juice recipe that I saw today on a brazilian page and thought of you guys.

        Put the kale at the blender with some water, then you put it to freeze. Done this, you can use the “little ice kale rocks” putting them again on the blender with other fruits like, pineapple, kiwi, strawberry, orange and lemon.

        This juice has the power to cleanse our body.

        Sorry about my english, is not my first language.

    1. Absolutely! The beauty of smoothies is that you can really throw whatever fruit and veggies you have in the fridge into the mix — and it’s a great way to make use of them before they spoil. Pineapple, mango, antioxidant-rich blueberries are great additions. And the @SquashBlossomBabies recipe shared below uses peaches and bananas. So many possibilities!

  1. We have smoothies almost everyday. My trick is to freeze Greek yogurt in an ice cube tray & place 4 cubes in your blender w/ frozen fruit. Makes for a very satisfying frozen drink.
