FREEZER SMOOTHIE PACKS

One thing that my husband and I both love are smoothies! They are easy to make, are ready in minutes, and a healthy way to get those essential vitamins and minerals. When you prep a weeks worth ahead of time you save not only time, but take the guess work out of what to put into the blender.

All you need to add is the freezer pack + milk of choice + protein and/or healthy fats. That’s it!

So instead of spending 10-15 minutes every single morning trying to decide, find, clean, trim, slice and prepare a smoothie, prepare them ahead of time to save yourself the time and stress. Plus – it’s a little extra time to sleep in when morning comes. And we can all agree that with some mornings, those extra 10-15 minutes count!

VERSATILITY – ADD WHAT YOU WANT!

An amazing thing about smoothies is that you can add as little or as much of an ingredient as you prefer.

  • Not a fan of bananas? Swap out for the fruit of your choosing.
  • Don’t care for peanut butter (shun!)? Swap it out for almond butter, cashew butter or the nut butter of your choosing. Great way to add protein to any smoothie!
  • Don’t forget to add chia seeds and/or flax meal for healthy fats. An avocado works, too!
  • Worried about the spinach or kale? You won’t even taste it! The only thing it is likely to do is turn the smoothie a strange color.
  • No to clementines? Try pineapple chunks.
  • Don’t forget to add your favorite yogurt! Prefer something more filling? Add a scoop of protein powder.

MAKE AHEAD FREEZER SMOOTHIE PACKS – TWO WAYS

  1. Triple Berry Green Smoothie:

This one is a favorite of mine, as I am always reaching for berries in my fridge. I am more likely to buy blueberries and strawberries over any other kind fo fruit. Or sliced banana goes into my yogurts as well. Not that I dislike mangos, pineapples, and such. The latter are just more difficult to cut, slice, core, etc. Berries you can grab and go! Let’s be real here, ok? HA! 😀

These freezer packs require:

  • Fresh baby spinach
  • Raw kale, stems removed
  • Peanut butter
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Optional: 1/2 tbsp chia seeds & 1/2 tbsp ground flax seed/meal

    2. Tropical Green Smoothie:

My husband and I love this one when we are stuck in Michigan and wanting to feel like we are lounging in a beach chair, soaking up the sun with our feet in the sand and a cold beverage in our hands! I think my husband loves this one the best because it contains mango. I have never known someone to love mango as much as he does! He loves to add it to vanilla yogurt, as it makes him feel as though he is eating a creamsicle. HA.

These freezer packs require:

  • Fresh baby spinach
  • Fresh kale, stems removed
  • 1 large banana, or 2 medium
  • Almond butter
  • Clementines
  • Mango
  • Optional: 3-6 tbsp shredded coconut
