Yummy!! This creepy smoothie bubbles right out of the glass while making the kiddies smile. Blood oranges are native to Italy and are not always easy to find in other countries. If you are searching for some and do not see them in the produce section, check the juice aisle. It is worth the hunt to make a Halloween celebration extra spooky. Blood oranges contain one of the super antioxidant compounds, namely anthocyanins, normally found only in berries and a few vegetables. The dark red, blood-colored pigment forms when oranges are grown in a cooler temperature. The magic of nature provides what our bodies need in almost any climate.

1 cup frozen cherries
1 cup blood orange juice
