Happy Halloween! Today’s post is two recipes in one. There’s the Poison-Green Skull Smoothie, which is a zesty green smoothie packed with spinach, green apple, kiwi, lime, and lemongrass. This version is for kids and teetotalers, or really anyone who just wants to drink a smoothie in a skull mug.
The second recipe is for adults. It begins with the first and then takes a hard right – adding some tequila and triple sec, morphing it from Poison-Green Skull Smoothie to a Poison-Green Skull Margarita, aka mother’s little Halloween helper.
