Cooking with Califia: Healthy Halloween Smoothie


Does the pre-coffee you resemble a zombie? Try the next recipe in our Smoothie Series from The Casual Vegetarian: a Healthy Halloween Chocolate Malt Smoothie.

Halloween can be a harrowing time of year--there is candy absolutely everywhere, and the ever-present temptation can be hard on our stomachs and teeth. A little indulgence never hurt anyone, and I'll admit I love to chew on a Tootsie Roll or two, but I know I always feel better (and avoid the inevitable sugar crash) when I make a little extra effort and combine wholesome ingredients to make something delicious and sweet. This smoothie is tasty, healthy, and gives you a boost with a little caffeine from Califia Farms' wonderful Mocha Iced Coffee with Almondmilk. I'm not lying when I say it tastes like a chocolate malt ball… I just may start making it every morning, October or not!
