Spooky Candy Smoothie for Halloween

The Veggie Shake Team

Our Spooky Candy Smoothie for Halloween looks like the stuff of nightmares and tastes like the sweetest dream. Made with ingredients that, when blended together, create the color of human flesh and topped with candies in the shape of body parts, this is one genuinely spooky smoothie!

It’s also genuinely delicious and genuinely nutritious. Don’t let the candy smoothie concept fool you. While the taste is sugary sweet, the smoothie itself is made from healthful ingredients like blood orange and mango. The only actual candy is sprinkled on top. In fact, you could also call this recipe the Sneaky Vitamin C Smoothie.

Health Benefits
  1. Orange juice: oranges contain high quantities of polyphenols, which can help to prevent heart disease and cancer. And, as you know, oranges are famously rich in vitamin C—a single one provides 130% of your daily recommended dose—which is essential for a healthy immune system, among other things.

  2. Blood orange: this superfruit combines the polyphenols and vitamin C found in “regular” oranges with potent, blood-red-pigment-producing anthocyanins that combat oxidative stress and soothe inflammation.

  3. Mango: is an excellent way to increase your intake of zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that protects the health of your eyes by filtering out harmful blue light.

  4. Pomegranate juice: researchers have identified two unique compounds—punicalagins and punici acid—that they believe are responsible for most of the health benefits associated with pomegranate, such as lowering blood pressure and alleviating joint pain.

  5. Almonds: are one of the best food sources of vitamin E, which may reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other chronic conditions.
