Fright-day Foods: Blood Shakes in Syringes

The inspiration for this came from a recipe for 'Dracula's Blood Shakes' from Tesco, which was sent to me by Kei from Unfortunately Oh!. It's really simple and quick to make and can contain almost any kind of fruit and non-carbonated drink you like. They're perfect for a little extra ambiance on any spooky table!

This post is for today's Fright-day Foods...

Ingredients and how-to guide after the cut below↓:

The ingredients I used in mine were:

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Pomegranate Juice 
  • A dash of red food colouring (this isn't necessary, but makes the colour more blood-like)

You will also need a mixing bowl, blender or hand held food processor, and glasses & syringes in which to serve the shakes.


1. Put the fruit into the bowl and blend with a hand-held food processor. When the consistency is fairly smooth, add the amount of each juice you want. Add a dash of red food colouring if needed. If you want to use a blender instead, put all of the ingredients in the blender and use until the desired consistency is reached. It might go a little frothy, but don't worry about that.

2. After tasting the mixture to make sure you like the flavour, syringe some of the mixture out and either put it into glasses or serve it, as is, in the syringes. If you pour it straight into the glasses, the froth will remain, but if you syringe it in, the froth dissipates. Obviously, if you're serving from the syringes, you need to make sure you have sterile ones that have not previously been used for "The Doctor"'s experiments!


  1. I think yours looks more convincing than the original! M&S do a grape and raspberry juice that looks like blood :D

  2. Ooh that juice sounds like it might be worth buying for next time. Thanks for the tip :)
