Healthy Halloween Potions

Healthy Halloween Potions

There’s no better way to scare off the chills and ills than with these fresh and delicious multi-vitamin and health-boosting potions that you can drink as “shots.” These immunity-enhancing shots come in small packages but pack a powerhouse of nutrients. They can be attractively served at your next party in any of these festive containers: hollowed out mini pumpkins or oranges, chocolate cups, repurposed spice jars, vintage cordial glasses, test tubes, or cooking syringes. Get creative and have fun!

Pumpkin-Orange Pie Shots

 

No waiting for this pie to bake! Grab a bag of juice oranges and a can of pumpkin puree to make delicious pumpkin and orange shots for your party guests. We served these seasonal shots in hollowed out oranges decorated with jack o’ lantern faces.

These mini pumpkin pie shots are packed with vitamins, minerals, and immune-enhancing antioxidants which help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Ingredients (Per shot):

1 juice orange
1 tablespoon pumpkin puree, chilled
1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tablespoon pecans, chopped
1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup or raw honey, to taste
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of ground ginger

Directions:

(Optional step) To make the Jack-O-Lantern orange cups ahead for your party, paint a face on room-temperature oranges before cutting. You can use a Sharpie marker, or fingernail polish as our paint since it will not penetrate the thick skin. Allow paint to thoroughly dry before proceeding.

Cut the top off each orange. Squeeze the juice from the orange top into your mini-blender before discarding. Insert the knife down the center of the inside of the orange and work the sharp knife around the inside of the orange to separate it from the rind to create a cup. Transfer the contents of the orange to your blender, removing seeds. 

Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and process until smooth. Mixture can be chilled before serving.  Pour mixture into hollowed oranges or any desired Halloween-themed vessels and enjoy. 

Vitamin Vampower Vials 

This superpower trio of antioxidant-rich fruits will rev your energy level and boost your body’s immune system fighting against cancer, heart attacks, and stroke. We served these powerhouse shots in vintage spice “vials.”  Yields: Approx. 1 ½ cups (three shots)

Ingredients:

1/3 cup pomegranate juice, chilled
½ cup pineapple chunks or pineapple juice, chilled
¼ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 teaspoon raw honey or more to taste
¼ teaspoon stevia powder or liquid stevia, to taste, optional
Dash of cinnamon, opt.

Directions: Add all the ingredients to a mini blender and mix until smooth. Pour into shot glasses and bottoms-up!

Vampire Shots

Healthy, nutritious, and frightfully delicious! Serve them at your next Halloween party!

Ingredients:
4-5 ripe tomatoes
1 large cucumber, peeled
1 large onion, quartered
1 green pepper, halved
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 cups tomato juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (optional)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Salt and pepper

Directions:
In a blender or food processor, combine two of the tomatoes, half of the cucumber, half of the onion, half of the green pepper, the garlic, and 1 cup of tomato juice. Blend until the veggies are pureed. In a large serving bowl, mix the pureed vegetables with the remaining tomato juice, olive oil, vinegar, pepper sauce (if desired), and yogurt. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve in decorative test tubes.

Ghostly Gruel Shots

No house—haunted or not—should be without this heart-healthy, ghostly gruel. This may be a cold shot of raw soup, but the cayenne warms as it goes down. Each shot delivers healthy doses of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, saturated fat, protein, and iron. We served ours as an appetizer in vintage cordial glasses. Yield: ½ cup (one or two shots)

Ingredients:

3 ounces almond or rice milk
¼ cup frozen cauliflower pieces, uncooked
½ tablespoon coconut oil or grass-fed butter
½ tablespoon old fashioned rolled oats, uncooked
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Pinch of onion powder
Dash of garlic powder and cayenne

Directions: Add all the ingredients to a mini blender and mix until almost smooth. The cauliflower adds an interesting texture to this healthy raw chilled shot of soup.

    Looking forward to trying all three of these…I will add grape wine to the Vitamin Vampower Vials.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
