Ghoulish Halloween Treats

Posted by: Garden of Life on Wednesday, October 30, 2013

My oldest son LOVES Halloween, and we have an annual tradition of “gross out “ meals for Halloween week.  It’s a great way for me to sneak in green foods that he normally balks at and disguise other healthy foods in various colored “slimes."
 
You can make these goodies easily and serve them knowing they are not loaded with sugar, preservatives, artificial coloring, and chemicals found in many Halloween treats.
Our “Spooky Spider Eggs” are really chia seeds turned into an overnight chia seed pudding.  Chia seeds help promote heart and brain health, cholesterol and blood sugar maintenance as well as healthy digestion and elimination. Just one serving of chia provides 3g of Omega-3 and 1g of Omega-6.
 
Both of our recipes also contain our new Perfect Food Raw Apple greens powder. Garden of Life raw greens are made with young cereal grass juices such as Barley, Alfalfa, Oat, Wheat, and Kamut, some of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Each serving of Perfect Food RAW contains 17 nutrient-dense veggie juices and the Real Raw Apple reminds me of the crisp flavor of a freshly picked organic apple!
 


Spooky Spider Eggs In Green Slime” aka Real Raw Apple Chia Seed Pudding
 
¾ cup Raw Organics Chia Seeds
2 cups Vanilla Almond Milk (you can have unsweetened or a different milk of your choice)
2 scoops Perfect Food Raw Real Raw Apple
 

In a container or jar with a good seal, blend chia, milk and Perfect Food powder well.  Let it stand overnight in the refrigerator. The chia will absorb the milk and create a creamy pudding- like texture.
 


To add a little more flavor, punch, top with raisins, craisins, coconut flakes, chopped nuts or anything your spoooooky heart desires!

 


 
Witches Goop with Goblin Teeth” aka Real Raw Apple Yogurt with Diced Apple
 
2 cups plain Greek Yogurt
1-2 scoops Perfect Food Raw Real Raw Apple
1 small apple of your choice, diced into “tooth” sized pieces
 
Mix yogurt and first scoop of Real Raw Apple. Some find the powder sweet, so test for sweetness and add more if you would like a bit more flavor or green color.

 


 

You can mix the diced apple into the yogurt (as I have) or you can layer it in a glass like a spooky parfait and let your little ghouls crunch away on a gross but power-packed, nutritious breakfast!
