Smoothies are pretty easy to make, right? But sometimes in the morning I don’t have a ton of time to hull strawberries, chop pineapple, or peel oranges. I came up with a solution to make my mornings go a little smoother (smoothie/smoother?). It will take some time (preferably on the weekend, or a weeknight, when you have some to spare), but the effort is definitely well worth the pay-off.
Here is how to make smoothie freezer packs.
First, start with an empty freezer bag (I used the sandwich size):
Add your ingredients (I put in half a banana, about 6 strawberries, and some coconut):
Next, you can add some yogourt if you wish. This can always be added when you are blending the smoothie. My preference is for Greek, but you can put in your favourite!
Finally, seal them up and throw them in the freezer. When you are ready to use, put it in the blender with about a half cup of liquid (more may be necessary), like milk or juice.
Yum yum! It took me about 15 minutes to make 6 freezer packs. The next morning, it took me 1 minute to make a smoothie.
Feel free to experiment with other combinations! What are your favourite combinations for smoothies?
