Ingredients 

  • Bananas

  • Maca powder: Comes from the Peruvian Andes. Adaptogenic superfood that increases energy, endurance, strength, libido. Contains 20 amino acids.
  • Chlorella powder: Rich in protien, Vitamins A, B2, B3, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, helps naturally detox the body from harmful metals, supports the immune system, and improves insulin sensitivity.
  • Flaxseed: Great source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, Omega-3. Helps improve glycemic control for blood sugars, lowers cholesterol, and many other benefits.

Directions 

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend well.
  2. Take clear plastic cups and with a Sharpie permanent marker, draw on Frankenstein’s face. I even used glass mason jars and wrote on it with a grease pencil. It stays on as you use it, but can be washed off later.
  3. Fill the cups with your blended green smoothie and watch Frankenstein’s face come to life!
  4. Enjoy your freaky green Frankenstein monster!

Frozen Yogurt Banana Ghosts

Seasonal, Snacks

I saw these creations on Pinterest and I was totally inspired. They are a cute and festive way to prepare snacks for the Halloween season. Naturally sweet and can help curve those sugar cravings to help you not overload on Halloween candy.

Bananas contain high levels of tryptophan that naturally converts to serotonin, which increases your mood! They are also high in potassium which can protect your muscles from cramping during a workout or even in your sleep. They have many other vitamins and minerals like: iron, magnesium, calcium, vitamins A and E, folate, carotene, and choline.

Greek yogurt is a great source of protein vital for building muscle, cell growth, and preparing tissue. It is also packed with probiotics which contains microorganisms that keep your intestines healthy and happy. It also has vitamin B12 that is necessary for healthy brain function.
