The candy corn colours make it extra fun and festive for Halloween, and you’ll get the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric and antioxidants and electrolytes from maple water. It’s like a candy corn that’s actually good to your body.

That’s right: all of the festive fun, none of the chemicals, additives, processed sugar, stabilizers, and calories . . .

Candy Corn Smoothie

Notes

  • This recipe calls for DRINKmaple maple water. If you can’t find maple water, coconut water could be an alternative.
  • The recipe was designed to be thick enough so you don’t have to freeze each section in between layering. If your smoothie does come out on the thinner side, try adding another heaping scoop of yogurt or half of a banana so that the blend thickens. Do NOT add ice, as this can cause more thinning.

1 cup maple water
1/4 cup plain coconut-based yogurt
