Did you know that the cuter your kids are, the better the candy they get on Halloween...
Trust me friends...When my darling two little princesses walked up to those strangers doors, every single person just fell in love. They immediately reached in their big bowl of candy, skipped past the sweet tarts and jolly ranchers, and pulled out the regular size snickers and full size bags of M&M's.
Full size M&M's!! Really?! Do they not know that M&M's are my weakness?!
Like many families during this time of year, I think we are all trying to offset the influx of holiday sweets that are just coming in on a weekly basis. Whether it's parties, holidays, etc., it's that time of year where the only thing missing is marshmallow peeps healthy food.
But if we make healthy food fun, bright, and attractive to the eyes of our little ones, than we can feel a little better about this time of year all together!
The sweetness of the carrots and oranges in this drink will satisfy any child's taste buds! And don't worry about the taste of carrots, you can't even taste it! Add a green celery stalk in a clear glass, so when you add the vibrant juice, it looks as if they are drinking a pumpkin!
- 4 large carrots
- 3 juice oranges (peeled)
- Juice the carrots and oranges together.
- Serve in clear glasses with a celery stalk to give the appearance of a pumpkin!
My goal was to give the appearance of a pumpkin by adding a green celery stick as the stem since we are still in pumpkin/halloween mode. In fact, according to Boo, we aren't allowed to take down ANY halloween decorations.
Including our molding carved pumpkins...Awesome.
Speaking of my kids...
Can you tell how opposite my girls are? One is in a princess dress and the other is outside playing in the dirt. Which one do you think is more like me?...
