Candy Corn Smoothies - A Halloween Treat For Both Kids & Grown-Ups!
Okay, I get it. Halloween is supposed to be about mini Snickers bars, candy apples, and Pumpkin Spice everything. But once you try this completely delicious (and equally festive) candy corn smoothies, you're going to be glad this recipe left you with plenty to share. I wanted to switch things up with a smoothie for all of my morning smoothie/juicer people. (There's no vegetables in the recipe, but I'm pretty sure you could sneak some carrot into the peaches/mango mixture, and it would be just as delicious with twice the amount of Vitamin A! I'd also recommend a scoop of chia seeds to get your Omega-3s in.) ----------------------------------------------------------------- Candy Corn Smoothie 3 red apples, peeled and cored 1 tablespoon lemon juice 6 cups plain soy yogurt 3 tablespoons sugar substitute 2 cups frozen peaches or mango 2 cups frozen pineapple Red and yellow food coloring 1. Chop apples into chunks and toss with lemon juice. Place in a shallow dish in the freezer until frozen, about 45 minutes. 2. In the work bowl of a food processor or blender, place 2 cups of yogurt along with the frozen apples and sugar substitute and blend until smooth. 3. In the work bowl of a food processor or blender, place frozen peaches or mango and 2 cups of yogurt and process until smooth. Add 4 drops of red food coloring and 8 drops of yellow food coloring for a strong orange color. 4. In the work bowl of a food processor or blender, place frozen pineapple and remaining 2 cups of yogurt and process until smooth. Add 6 drops of yellow food coloring for a bright yellow color. 5. If not serving smoothies right away, store all three layers separately in three separate airtight containers in the freezer. Thaw slightly before serving. 6. Spoon a layer of the apple yogurt mixture into bottom of glasses. 7. Carefully spoon a layer of peach or mango mixture on top. 8. Top with a layer of pineapple mixture.
