Spooky take on the classic morning green smoothie - behold the Spookylicious Green Smoothie!

Halloween is my Christmas! Hands down! You know that movie, Halloweentown? It is my dream goal to live in Halloween Town where it’s Halloween every day! Wouldn’t that be amazing!?

Any-who, because of my love for Halloween, this recipe was a lot of fun creating!

If you remember anything from my morning green smoothie, this is exactly the same recipe but with fun Halloween garnishes and a small craft project.

Notice the Frankenstein faces on the glass? I did that using just a Sharpie retractable-fine point marker.  What I love about using a Sharpie pen is that if you make a mistake on the glass, you can wash it off easily with a little soap and water. You can also check out this link for other ways to clean your glass.

The Halloween garnishes are just as easy as the Frankenstein art. You can choose whatever fruit you would like but for the fruit kabobs, I used kiwi and blackberries. Blackberries reminded me of little brains and I love the contrasting colors in the kiwi with the smoothie color. The fruits should go through a wooden kabob with no problem, I would just recommend cutting your kiwi at least 1” in length so the kiwi doesn’t tear apart.

This next part is my favorite -- banana ghosts! I usually tell you to use a ripe banana in all my recipes but for this, you need to use a green to yellow banana. The banana needs to be firm so that it’s easier to handle and that it doesn’t fall off the kabob. Instead of using sugar eyes, I used dark chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth. You should have no problem inserting the chocolate chip directly into the banana. If you do, you could probably use melted dark chocolate or peanut butter as a sticking agent.
