Smoothie Time: Halloween Smoothie Bowl

Halloween is almost upon us and when I was starting to plan my October posts, I knew that my smoothie post for the month, had to be Halloween-themed. So here it is, a Halloween smoothie bowl inspired by a pumpkin! Although, it doesn't actually have any pumpkin in it - sorry guys. As I wanted this to be a specific colour, I have used food colouring but it did not have any effect on the overall taste. It also is not the neatest smoothie bowl in the world in terms of decoration but, who said all smoothie bowls had to look Instagram-worthy!



Ingredients
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 1 handful of frozen mango
  • 1 handful of frozen peaches and nectarines
  • 1 tablespoon oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (for decoration)
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of tropical yoghurt (I used Mango & Vanilla but any tropical yoghurt will work)
  • Coconut milk
  • Pineapple juice
Method
  1. Put your frozen fruit into a food processor (I found this easier to blend than a blender)
  2. Add your oats
  3. Add your tropical yoghurt
  4. Add a little coconut milk and pineapple juice to add flavour and help blend (you might want to add more to help blend)
  5. Blend to your preferred consistency
  6. Pour into a bowl and top with chia seeds in a pumpkin face design - I could not find a stencil to use that was not too big or made of paper. What I had to do is bend a star biscuit cutter slightly out of shape to make the mouth stencil and then just used a spoon to pour some chia seeds into the bowls to make the eyes. 
I hope you guys enjoy this smoothie bowl recipe and I would definitely love to see if any of you re-create this smoothie bowl or just make your own Halloween-inspired smoothie bowl! Tag me on Instagram (ellynrebeccaxo) in the photos so I can see them.

  1. Ah this is such a fun recipe, and I like the decoration, it’s really festive for Halloween. A few people have done sweet recipes for Halloween, so it’s nice to see something a little healthier! :-) xx
