TruMoo Limited Edition Halloween Milks & Tasty Recipes {Goosebumps One Day at HorrorLand DVD Giveaway - 2 winners!}

TruMoo logo
While I've always been fond of Halloween, there's no denying that there is a whole lot of sugar involved in the holiday. Now, as a child, I had no qualms about that. Mo' sugar, mo' betta.

But these days, as a mom, if there are ways to make my family's Halloween frightfully delicious while not completely losing sight of nutrition, I'm all for them.

Most recently, that quest has been made extremely easy (and tasty) thanks to TruMoo Chocolate Milk and TruMoo Limited Edition Vanilla Milk, which is available in a festive Halloween orange!

TruMoo milk

After being introduced to TruMoo earlier this year, it's easy to say that we've remained fans of the nation's leading ready-to-serve chocolate and vanilla milks. As well as the delectable flavors, TruMoo contains 35% less total sugar than the leading chocolate milk competitor, 40% less added sugar than the previous formulation and no high fructose corn syrup.

It's a win-win!

This year for Halloween, TruMoo has come up with a variety of ways to celebrate the spooky holiday. First, the orange-tinted Limited Edition TruMoo Lowfat Vanilla Milk (available at retailers nationwide through the end of October)! I mean, c'mon! Orange milk!

Second, the TruMoo Halloween Sweepstakes! Now through October 31st, you will find a unique code located on the cap sticker of specially marked Limited Edition TruMoo Halloween Vanilla and Chocolate milks. These codes can be entered online at TruMoo.com for a chance to win a Haunted Hollywood Vacation trip as well as offering the option to receive $2 off any Goosebumps DVD.

Third, TruMoo has made enjoying their milks even more fun for Halloween.

As always, TruMoo can be enjoyed on its own, or, for an added spooky twist, brew up the unique concoctions that they've created, the Spooky Smoothie and the Monster Mash Mudslide.

The Spooky Smoothie is a flavorful combination of vanilla milk and Greek yogurt, which is blended with ice and topped with whipped cream. The fun is all in the orange-tinted Limited Edition TruMoo Lowfat Vanilla Milk, so serve it up in a clear glass to get the full effect!

Spooky Smoothie Recipe Card

Unfortunately, we checked just about every retailer listed on the TruMoo store locator in our areas and the orange-tinted TruMoo was nowhere to be found. Do they not realize that I want a Spooky Smoothie?

However, TruMoo's second Halloween recipe, the chocolaty Monster Mash Mudslide, sounded right up my alley (chocolate + chocolate? Yes, please!), so we brought home TruMoo Chocolate Milk and blended up this yummy glass of tastiness instead:

Monster Mash Mudslide

Monster Mash Mudslide

Ingredients

4 cups TruMoo Lowfat Chocolate Milk
10 chocolate wafer cookies, coarsely broken
½ cup frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
8 mini chocolate chips or mini chocolate candies

Directions

In blender, combine TruMoo Lowfat Chocolate Milk and chocolate wafer cookies. Blend until smooth. Heat mixture in saucepan or microwave until just heated through (to enjoy a cold mudslide, do not heat in saucepan or microwave).

To serve, pour chocolate milk mixture into four glasses. For each serving, spoon a large, upright dollop of whipped topping to resemble a ghost. Insert chocolate chips or chocolate candies into the dollop for eyes.

We tried these hot as well as cold and there was no doubt that they were a big hit!

Keep an eye on the dairy case at your local grocery and convenience stores (TruMoo is also available at Wendy's locations from coast to coast) with a suggested retail price of $4.49 for a gallon, $2.99 for a half gallon and $1.49 for a single serve container.

And, thanks to their generosity, two people are going to be prepared to add a little spooky, eerie fun to their Halloween and beyond, because...

Two lucky people will win Goosebumps One Day At HorrorLand DVDs from TruMoo!

The Monster Mash Mudslide is so full of chocolate that when I have my first taste I'll be so overwhelmed with joy. I'll most likely need to have more and save the hot version for evening before bed. Aren't holidays a blast?
