Description

Smoothies are a great healthy breakfast, but busy folks know there's no time for all that chopping and measuring in the morning rush. Make these easy DIY smoothie packs ahead of time and stash them in your freezer until you're ready to whir up a fruit-filled meal or snack everyone will love. This makes enough for a workweek's worth of smoothies!

Directions

  1. Place ½ cup strawberries (or other fruit) and ½ cup banana in a sealable plastic sandwich bag. Repeat with the remaining fruit to make 4 more bags. Store in the freezer until ready to use.
  2. To make a smoothie: Place the contents of one bag into a blender along with 1 cup almond milk (or soymilk). Blend until smooth.

Tips

  • To make ahead: Store smoothie packs in the freezer for up to 3 months.
