Frankenstein Halloween Green Smoothie Recipe

Halloween is a holiday of sweets and treats.  Sometimes, you need a healthy snack for the kids that doesn't involve chocolate, processed sugars, or high calories.  Fun and cute healthy snack is almost always a hit with kids.  We make a lot of smoothie recipes, so my kids are used to the blender chopping up foods into smoothies, so it was not difficult to think of this Halloween Frankenstein Green Smoothie!

Frankenstein Cup Craft

We started by making our Frankenstein craft with a simple glass.  (Affiliate links are being included in this post.)  The materials you'll need for your Frankenstein craft include:

Tall drinking glass (If you are worried about using a glass cup with your child, you can make these with clear plastic cups, too. 
black cardstock
scissors
Clear Tape
Green Cardstock
Peel and Stick Googly Eyes


Cut a strip of black cardstock and cut a jagged line along one edge.  Tape this onto the top of the glass or cup.  Stick the sticky back googly eyes onto the face of the Frankenstein.  Cut small rectangles of the green Cardstock and tape them at the ear.  Bend the cardstock so the rectangles stick out. Cut a jagged mouth and tape it into place.  It's that easy!  This would be such a fun craft for kids to make at a Halloween party.

Next, get your kids in on the cooking activity by making a green smoothie together.  The nice thing about this recipe is that you can use whatever fruits or vegetables you've got on hand.  We made our green smoothie using baby spinach, strawberries, and milk.   Other ingredients might include frozen (or fresh) bananas, blueberries, raspberries, mango, kiwi, blackberries, cherries, pears, apples, peaches, or any fruits.  For the green color you could substitute kale or other leafy green vegetable.  

To make the Green Smoothie Recipe:

Toss 1 cup of baby leaf spinach into a blender.  Pour in 1 cup of milk.  Blend this together on a high speed until the spinach is pulverized and liquid.  Add 1 and 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries. Blend again until the fruit is well blended.  (You could use other liquids for your smoothie instead of the milk.  Try juice, almond milk, water, or coconut milk. Also consider adding ice cubes for a frozen drink.)  As you can see, there is a lot of room for substitution with this recipe.  Pour the green smoothie into the Frankenstein cups and have fun with your Halloween treat!
