Candy Corn Smoothie

I’m an absolute smoothie fanatic. I love creating smoothies, testing them, perfecting the recipe, and enjoying the final product! I even wrote a whole cookbook about smoothies. A lot of people think of smoothies as a warm weather food, but I make and love them year-round! This Candy Corn Smoothie is so festive for Halloween and my kids always go crazy for it. They love seeing how the different colors and layers start to merge together as they sip their drink! It is a great way to get immune-boosting nutrients with a total citrus POP this time of year!

The Secret Ingredient for Creamy Smoothies

I love to include cauliflower in my smoothies! I keep a big bag of it in the freezer just for this purpose. This may seem like an unexpected choice, but it’s a lot like spinach: you don’t taste it at all, and it adds amazing nutrients and an incredible creaminess into your smoothie! Cauliflower is low in calories while offering dietary fiber, vitamin C and folic acid. I like to buy frozen riced cauliflower because it blends much easier than frozen cauliflower florets. Be sure to check the label and make sure it doesn’t have any added spices. The only ingredient on the label should be cauliflower.

Orange Smoothie

The orange layer of this Candy Corn Smoothie is filled with bright fresh orange (the juice and zest)! I love giving my family this boost of vitamin C to help their immune systems, especially in the fall and winter months. Evidence suggests that for some people, high doses of Vitamin C might actually shorten a cold by as much as one and a half days. In addition, vitamin C fights free radicals to prevent or delay certain cancers and heart disease. It is essential for the growth and repair of bodily tissues, helps heal wounds and repairs and maintains healthy cartilage, bones, teeth and skin. Sign me up!

Carrot Candy Corn Smoothie

Carrots are naturally a little bit sweet, and when paired with a bit of maple syrup (or dates) and citrus like in this smoothie recipe, they absolutely shine! They also add incredible nutrition since they’re low in calories and offer dietary fiber. They’re high in beta-carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A. This is good for eye health but also your immune system as well as healthy skin. They add a beautiful orange hue to this Candy Corn Smoothie too for the orange layer.

This smoothie is vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, peanut-free, soy-free, paleo-friendly, soy-free, and refined sugar-free! To make it nut-free use any non-dairy milk alternative you prefer (oat, rice, coconut hemp, flax etc.)
