Halloween Franken-Smoothie

We needed to balance out all those sweets and less than healthy foods we've been eating so we swapped those pancakes and cinnamon buns for a delicious fruit and veggie smoothie this morning. I'm not quite done with Halloween season yet so I had to dress up the smoothies a little. AI drew Frankenstein-monster-like faces on small mason jars with a black Sharpie and used a little maple syrup to stick some chocolate sprinkles to the rim. 


Here's what went into the Franken-smoothies:

- 1 cup water

- 1 apple, peeled and chopped

- 1/2 cup green grapes (can use fresh or frozen)

- 1 frozen banana

- 1 cup spinach (can use fresh or frozen)

- 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt

Throw all your ingredients into the blender and let it go until it's uniform in color with no chunks.


The recipe filled two small jars for the kids and one large glass, about 16oz, for me. I thought it was tasty and filling, and just sweet enough. The kids both emptied their jars so I'm going to take that as their approval!
