Orange Boo Smoothie Recipe🍊👻

The frozen banana is the genius part of this recipe. It adds a brilliant creamy texture to the smoothie without having an overpowering taste of banana. The combination of vanilla and orange is reminiscent of the iconic ice pop the ‘Super Split’. To really amp up the flavour the orange zest or orange blossom are great in this Halloween smoothie. The only thing you will need is some food colouring to really boost the flavour and have it looking that vibrant spooky orange colour. This smooth, creamy, orange smoothie is an unusual twist on a smoothie but one you are sure to love.

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 250 mls orange juice
  • 250g pot of vanilla yogurt  / orange yogurt
  • 1 tsp orange blossom / zest half orange

  • drop of yellow and orange food colouring

method

Cupcakes for Zombies🧁🧠

This recipe was fun to make and I am now a self-proclaimed brain surgeon. 😷💉

ingredients

  • 140g butter, at room temperature
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 170g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp milk

For the Zombie icing

  • 300g icing sugar
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • Red food colouring
  • 12 cupcakes
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder

method

  • Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4 and line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper cases.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and the sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Fold in the flour and add the milk. Spoon into the cases and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool completely.
  • For the Zombie icing
  • In a bowl, beat together the icing sugar and butter until thoroughly combined.
  • Stir in enough food colouring to make it pink and mix vigorously until evenly combined.
  • Spread a smooth layer of pink icing over each cupcake in a domed shape.
  • With the tip of a knife, make a line down the centre of each cupcake. Pipe a winding pattern of icing on each side of the centre line to create the brain wrinkles. Place the iced cupcakes in the freezer until needed.
  • In a shallow bowl, stir together the golden syrup, cocoa powder and a few drops of red food colouring.
  • Remove the cupcakes from the freezer and drizzle the tops in the syrupy “blood,” allowing any excess to drip off
