Are You in the Halloween Spirit Yet?

I'm a little too old for trick-or-treating, and too young to have kids of my own so what is left to do for fun? Hold a Halloween Party for adults perhaps?! I found some very tasty sounding recipes for different beverages that would be a great addition to any Halloween Party.

I can already see boring offices transformed into festive spooky fun, and something for the teenagers to get excited about. (imagine that!)

I hope these found recipes bring you some Halloween joy.

Bug Juice Smoothies
2 cups vanilla yogurt
2 large bananas, cut into chunks
1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)

  1. Place all ingredients in blender, except for the candy. Cover and blend on high speed about 30 seconds or until smooth.
  2. Pour into 4 glasses.
  3. Serve immediately garnish with gummy worms or bugs.

Makes 4 servings.

Halloween Fizzy Punch

  2. When ready to serve, stir in lemon-lime soda.
  3. Place 1/4 cup sherbet into 8 punch cups. Pour orange drink over sherbet and serve immediately.

Mmm...Enjoy! And thank you for reading.

P.S. The pictured jewelry can be found at my Etsy Shop. The Jet and Topaz Moon Earrings are temporarily out of stock, and I will be getting another pair of those available this week.
