Smoothies for Halloween--Tasty and Low-Calorie

Celebrate Halloween with healthy smoothies and just a little candy! I like smoothies because they satisfy my sweet tooth without the cavities that candy give me.

If you like pumpkin, here is a great pumpkin smoothie:


2 cups of pumpkin (you could use sweet potato instead)
1 tablespoons brown rice syrup
1 tablespoon sucanat
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons butterscotch flavoring
2 to 2-1/2 cups water
2 ice cubes (optional)
2 teaspoons sesame tahini (ethnic food department)

Bake pumpkins until tender. Let cool (in refrigerator when not too warm). Begin blending. After several seconds of blending, stop the unit and mix the ingredients, if necessary, using a long utensil. Reblend to a creamy consistency. Serve warm or chilled.

Here are two other tasty smoothies for your enjoyment:


2 bananas
1 cup low-fat strawberry yogurt or frozen yogurt
1/2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
1-1/2 cups strawberries, hulled, frozen
1 cup raspberries, frozen
Place all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.


10 ounces apple-cranberry juice
4 ounces strawberries
2 ounces pineapple chunks
2 scoops rainbow sherbet
1/2 banana
1/2 cups ice
Place ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.

Use smoothies for snacks or meal replacements. For you on-the-go people, smoothies are a perfect way to help you eat healthy with only a few calories.

Happy, safe Halloween!

As you can see, it doesn't take many ingredients to make smoothies so you will definitely save money.
