(It's way yummier than it sounds. Trust me! It's like portable garlic bread with spaghetti in it!)
This refreshing Halloween drink will cool down all those little ghosts and goblins running around your party.
Make the smoothies in a pitcher ahead of time and create the jack-o-lantern faces in the glasses.
Then, it becomes an easy party self-serve station!
