This Halloween Orange Peach Smoothie is a fun fruit smoothie, made with orange juice, frozen peaches, and a boost of protein from the yogurt. Decorating the cups is fun also which makes this great choice for Halloween drinks for kids too!
Halloween is one of our all-time favorite holidays. We love to get into the spirit and have helped out at many local community events with haunted houses or even just planning fun activities in our neighborhood.
I know for many, Halloween can mean lots of candy at trick-or-treating time. Today I’ve got a more naturally sweet alternative that still has lots of Halloween fun! With a variety of frozen fruits available at the grocery stores year round, it’s easy to whip up an Orange Peach Smoothie anytime!
What Ingredients Do You Need For This Smoothie?
Orange Juice – we prefer the kind without pulp but use what you like!
Milk – you can use any milk you prefer—dairy or non-dairy. I used fat free milk in mine
Banana – The bananas that get the brown spots are great for smoothies because they get sweeter as they ripen!
Plain Yogurt – We prefer plain Greek yogurt but if that’s too tart for your taste, then vanilla yogurt can be substituted. I like to buy the large containers of Kirkland brand plain Greek yogurt at Costco.
Vanilla Extract – be sure to use the pure vanilla extract and not the imitation kind. The imitation extract can give this smoothie an “off” taste.
Honey – This recipe calls for one tablespoon of honey but if you like your smoothies a little sweeter, add up to two tablespoons.
Frozen Peaches – you can find these in the frozen fruit section of the grocery store. In my store, they are near the frozen vegetables too.
How Do You Make These Halloween Orange Peach Smoothies?
This recipe uses frozen peaches which can be found in the frozen foods aisle of most grocery stores. With the extra ripe banana and honey paired with the orange juice, my kids say it reminds them of a sweet tart. The addition of the milk gives it a slightly frosty feel that is bursting with flavor!
For Halloween fun, have kids decorate clear plastic cups with a permanent marker and make fun faces or sayings on the cup. Great for parties—everyone can decorate their own cup! Or fun for your family too.
This Halloween smoothie is delicious any time of the year, but it is also a great way to have fun and eat well at the same time.

Can you make this smoothie ahead?Yes, sort of! You can make up smoothie kits with the ingredients but leave out the liquid.
What is a smoothie kit and can I freeze it?Take a freezer safe container or bag and add the frozen peaches, banana, yogurt, honey and vanilla. Label and date and store in the freezer for up to three months. When ready to prepare, take out kit and let it thaw for about 5 minutes in the pitcher of a blender. Add liquid ingredients and then blend. Depending on the type of blender you have, you may need to let it thaw a bit longer. I have a Vitamix blender which is pretty powerful so it works ok for me. Sometimes I will do this while I’m preparing other breakfast or snack items. Just find what’s right for you!
