Slime-green Halloween smoothie

Happy Halloween!

It's my favorite holiday and, honestly, I'm kind of bummed it had to fall on a Monday this year. Although, this weekend, we did have some Halloween fun.

Jon went as a tree (complete with leaves, birds, racoons, and a nest)

 I went as Sacajawea (minus the baby)

We had a good time with friends, played some games, had some drinks, ate some Halloween-themed cupcakes, and got home too late :)

The festivities will continue tonight with (maybe) a local ghost story walk, carving some spooky pumpkins, and definitely some of Southern Tier Brewing Company's Pumpking beer (review to come)!

 In honor of the holiday, I'm going to share a terrifying treat. It looks scary, but it's actually very tasty (and healthy!)
Slime-Green Halloween Green Monster 
You'll need:
1 cup almond milk
1 banana
2 pineapple rings
1 cup fresh baby spinach
1 t chia seeds (optional)
3 ice cubes

To make:
1. Peel banana, split in half, and put in blender
2. Add ice
3. Put in remaining ingredients
4. Blend first using the Crush ice setting until all ice is chopped
5. Blend on liquefy until ingredients are smooth and well blended

 The result is a slime-green colored smoothie that's frothy, sweet, and full of nutrition.

What are your Halloween plans? Do you have a favorite Halloween food?
