A Simple Halloween Smoothie

Who says Halloween has to be unhealthy? Here is a "Green Goblin" green smoothie that I amped up especially for the holiday, complete with beet "blood" and hemp seed "maggots."

To make the green goblin smoothie base


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled and frozen
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1 packet powdered stevia (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon hemp seeds (to garnish)


Blend until smooth and creamy.

To make beet "blood" 


  • 2 beets, juiced
  • Half inch knob fresh ginger, juiced (optional)
  • One quarter cup maple syrup or coconut nectar (optional to create thicker "blood" consistency)


Mix ingredients in bowl by hand until thick consistency.

To serve

Place "blood" in a wide shallow bowl and dip the rim of glass to create a "bloody" effect.

Pour in green smoothie and garnish with hemp seeds.

Serves 1-2.
