This Halloween smoothie is a fun fruit smoothie, made with fresh oranges, peaches, and a boost of protein from vanilla yogurt.
Halloween is one of our all-time favorite holidays. We love to get into the spirit by decorating the house and yard and helping out at the school’s Haunted House (part of a larger family festival and fundraising evening hosted by our school’s PTO).
I know for many, Halloween can mean lots of candy at trick-or-treating time. Today I’ve got a recipe that will help counter all that sugary sweetness, I’m sharing 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 Jack-O-Lantern Smoothie or two anytime. My daughter especially loves this smoothie. I’m not sure if it’s the vanilla or what, but it’s got a slightly frothy feel to it and is bursting with tropical flavor!
Enjoy your orange peach Halloween smoothie with a healthy snack, like cinnamon raisin peanut butter energy bites.
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
- ½ cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 cup frozen peaches, unthawed (I used an orange, peach, strawberry blend but left out the strawberries)
- Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth. Serve immediately.
- 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!

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.
I hope you enjoy it!
