Is your crew thirsty for Halloween fun? If the answer is yes, then serve them a little Witches Brew. Mwah ha ha ha!
They will never guess what the bewitched ingredient is in witches brew. So I say, blend it up, let them guess and surprise away…
What is the bewitched ingredient you ask? Why darling, it’s Spinach!
Spinach is not only healthy, but it adds the natural color without any food dye. I am the queen of sneak and tell, so while I encourage you to sneak it in, I do encourage you to also tell the kids in your life what the secret ingredient is in Witches Brew. If they like this concoction, it will help to open your their minds to the power of a recipe. Over time, they will learn how just the right mix of ingredients can help us eat foods we often won’t eat alone. If all else fails, remind them that it’s better than the original witches brew of frog toes, hair & beetle juice – YUCK!
Cheers to Witches Brew!
