Recipe: A Candy Corn Smoothie that’s so good it’s scary

Don’t worry, zombies haven’t taken over the Well+Good offices. This smoothie does not contain any traces of actual candy corn (and won’t include the frightening health effects of corn syrup, either).

The duo behind Green Blenderone of New York City’s smoothie delivery services, is known for crafting cool smoothies that riff on not-always-healthy foods—like pancake– and mojito-inspired blends—and this Halloween, they’re taking on candy corn.

“It’s no secret that candy corn is a glorified sugar cube. We held off on all the added sugars and used sweeter fruits like pineapple and apples to emulate the sweet treat. The smoothie is refreshing and energizing,” says co-founder Jenna Tanenbaum.

It also includes camu camu, grown in the Amazon rainforest, which is packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, and protein, says Tanenbaum, who suggests that you blend each fruit separately, in order to give the smoothie a festive layered effect.

“This is the perfect drink after some hard training. Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapples, is an anti-inflammatory and helps prevent muscle soreness after intense workouts,” Tanenbaum says. It’s so good, it’s scary. —Molly Gallagher 

Candy Corn Smoothie
1 carrot, scrubbed and chopped
1/4 cup pineapple
1 apple, cored and chopped
1/2 tsp camu camu powder
1 cup water
1 cup ice

Blend each ingredient separately and add as layers. Use the apple for the bottom, the carrots for the middle, and the pineapple for the top. The key is to work with frozen ingredients, so each layer stays separated.
