Make this healthy candy corn inspired smoothie for the kids AND adults! | Tried and TastyHold up. Is it SERIOUSLY September already? It can’t be, it just can’t. SEPTEMBER? What? How? Why? Clearly I’m having separation issues from my beloved May,  June, and July… and I guess I’ll throw August in there too. At the turn of the new month I’ve been seeing #allthethings apple, pumpkin, and of course… Halloween. My bestie Alli LOVES her some Halloween. For the month of September she hosts a “30 Days of Halloween” series that I’m so happy to be a part of! If I have to embrace the change in seasons I may as well hold hands with friends while doing it! This is her fourth year, and my 2nd year participating. Last year I created my Tropical Candy Corn Parfait (case in point of my separation issues with warm weather – HA!). This year I’m continuing the ‘candy corn’ theme with this fun (and delicious) smoothie. 

I wanted to create something healthier than the sugar loaded treats that are more common. Don’t get me wrong, those are always an option but why not try something different? I like the challenge [at least a challenge to me] to develop a recipe that will be just as enticing and just as scrumptious. This smoothie? Nailed it! I’m already a smoothie fan as it is, so this is just a festive way to enjoy it. So what are your plans for next month? Do you already know what you’re going to be for the big day? Do you know what parties you will be attending or hosting? What food you’ll be serving? Well if it’s too soon to know all of that, it’s not too soon to pin, bookmark, or print this recipe! That way it will at the top of your ‘to make’ list – and when you make it – which I hope you will, you’ll have to let me know what you think! Cheers!
