This year, celebrate Halloween with these spooky, homemade blueberry Halloween treats!
Thank you to the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council for sponsoring this post! As always, all blueberry-loving opinions are 100% my own.
These ghoulish recipes featuring nutritious blueberries are perfect for Halloween! And they’re a lot healthier than the usual Halloween candies. These blueberry Halloween treats are so easy to make- one puree can be used to make two fun dishes!
Simply blend blueberries, a banana, and apple juice in a blender. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. I always have frozen blueberries on hand in my freezer to add to smoothies, sandwiches, oatmeal or yogurt for a natural boost of sweetness and nutrients. Blueberries are a good source of fiber and an excellent source of vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant. One serving of blueberries provides almost 25 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C!#AD Celebrate Halloween with @foodiephysician's spooky, homemade blueberry Halloween treats! @blueberry411Click To Tweet
You can use the blueberry mixture to make a spooky eyeball soup. Garnish the soup with “eyeballs” made with blueberries and canned lychees, which can be found in the Asian food section of many grocery stores. If you can’t find them, you can substitute honeydew melon.
You can also pour the blueberry mixture into Halloween-themed ice cube trays for some frightening frozen treats. I found these fun skull, pumpkin, spider and spider web ice cube trays on Amazon HERE.
I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries plus 4 blueberries for eyeballs
- 1 banana frozen
- 1/3-1/2 cup apple juice
- 4 lychees drained (from a can)
- Puree the blueberries, banana and apple juice together in a blender until smooth. Add more apple juice as needed to get a thick consistency.
- To make the eyeballs, place one blueberry in the center of each lychee.
- Pour the blueberry soup into two bowls and top each bowl with two eyeballs.
