Fun and creative Halloween smoothies to make with the kids!

  1. Place the frozen summer fruits, banana and juice into a tall jug and whiz until smooth with a hand blender or use a food processor (you may need to sieve the smoothie afterwards if there are too many seeds). 
  2. Simply assemble and create. Use a wooden skewer to make holes in the bug first as the seeds will go in easier! Great game for the kids to create their perfect scary bug.  Pour the smoothie into glasses and serve with 'bugs'.

Cook's tip: If you're wanting to turn this recipe into a milk shake, simply replace the fruit juice with semi-skimmed milk.
