Witches Brew Smoothie ~ a Raw and Vegan Recipe for Halloween!

serves 4 ~$1.43 per serving

  • 1 head romaine ($2.29)
  • 3 ripe bananas ($.45) 1 lb frozen mango ($2.69)
  • water for blending
  • 1/4 cup beet juice ($.30)

A basic green smoothie can easily become witched brew. Add a beet hand for creepy effect.

In a blender, with about a half cup water (or more, if needed), blend the romaine until very smooth. Even a small blender will do this well if the greens are blended first. Add the banana and frozen mango and blend until smooth. Serve in a punch bowl or your favorite cauldron, if desired.

For the hand you;ll need a latex glove. Rinse the inside of the glove well and fill with water and the beet juice. Make a knot in the top of the glove, or tie shut with a rubber band. Freeze for several hours or overnight, until frozen solid. Run under hot water for a second or two and then peel the glove from the hand. Put in the center of your witches brew. This serves four, so there are plenty of chilly fingers to go around.

  2. The first time I saw this, I didn't even think about what was in it. Now, I read the recipe closer, and I think that this would be so delicious! The beet juice would totally sweeten the green smoothie! I plan on making this soon!

    …Make sure you are not filling a "Powdered" latex glove (Yikes!)…maybe wash it first to be sure no chemicals on it 🙂
