Halloween Breakfast Smoothie - Thank you Lauren Braun Costello! - Westport Moms

Halloween Breakfast Smoothies

Halloween night is all about costumes and candy, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start the day with something healthy and wholesome. Enter a delicious breakfast smoothie, made either with frozen strawberries or bananas, milk of your choice, and your favorite protein powder (chocolate pictured). Bring the Halloween theme to life with a chocolate-covered strawberry goblin or an adorable banana ghost. If you don’t have frozen fruit on hand, just use fresh fruit and a fistful of ice. These smoothies are so easy to make that even the kids can make one for YOU!

Equipment: cutting board; paring knife; measuring spoons; wet measuring cups; blender

Strawberry Goblin Smoothie Ingredients:

1 cup frozen strawberries
2 cups milk
1 scoop protein powder
1 tablespoon natural cocoa powder, optional

**Garnish Ingredients:
2 fresh strawberry
2 tablespoons melted chocolate
4 edible candy eyes

To make the strawberry garnish, dip each strawberry in the chocolate and set on a small cutting board or plate. Top each covered berry with two candy eyes. Set in the fridge while you make smoothie.

Banana Ghost Smoothie Ingredients:
1 frozen banana
2 cups milk
1 scoop protein powder
1 tablespoon natural cocoa powder, optional

**Garnish Ingredients:
1 fresh banana (or 2 whole baby banana)
4 miniature chocolate chips
2 chocolate chips

To make the banana garnish, peel and halve a regular banana (or peel two baby bananas). Using the pointy tip of the chips, place the two mini chips in the banana flesh as the eyes and the regular chips in the flesh as the mouths.  Set in the fridge while you make the smoothie.

Combine either the strawberry or banana smoothie ingredients in a blender until smooth. Divide the mixture between two glasses.
Serve immediately topped with the corresponding garnish.

Makes 2 smoothies per recipe.
