My daughter has her Halloween party at school this week, and I can’t resist making an orange smoothie to bring. I made this a little sweeter than normal, but I wanted to make sure all the little goblins and ghosts in her class would enjoy this smoothie. It gets it’s bright orange color from carrots, and lots of sweet flavors from pineapple and orange.
I love that her class is taking steps to make sure the party is healthier than the average. We’ll have a fruit tray and vegetable tray, both shaped like pumpkins found in the Healthy Halloween Ideas post, homemade chicken fingers, and we are decorating pumpkin shaped sugar cookies (also homemade) with chocolate chips. They’ll have Halloween crafts and games to play, as well. I can’t wait to see her class all dressed up! Halloween is always one of my favorite days of the year!
