Start Simple – Easy DIY Halloween Ideas
Blueberries pair perfectly with all the flavors of fall, including caramel, maple and ginger – not to mention pumpkin and all its spices (hello, cinnamon and nutmeg). We’re truly living our best lives in this season! Of course, around Halloween, it’s fun to add a little extra flair for your ghouls and goblins of all ages. Even if you’re short on time, you can make any meal or snack a little more fun with a boost of blue.
- Topping breakfast with a dollop of Greek yogurt or a dessert with whipped cream? Add blueberry eyes to make yummy little ghosts.
- Mix smashed blueberries or blueberry puree into a beverage – sparkling water, smoothies or even milk – and call it monster juice. (Big monsters might like something stronger.)
- Let the kids play with their food before they eat, just this once, to make witches hats, pumpkins and other seasonal shapes.
