Sure throwing a few ingredients in a blender to make a smoothie doesn’t take long, but on a busy weekday morning we all know…every minute counts! And after trying out this make ahead method of bagging (or bottling) up smoothie ingredients myself, I can attest that it really does make a difference.
3 Ways to Freeze Smoothie Ingredients
Even in the afternoons when the girls get home from school, I might not always be into the idea of getting out all the different ingredients to make a smoothie, but if the fruits and veggies were already packaged up in the exact right proportions? Sure, we can have a smoothie snack any day!
It’s amazing how sometimes a little advance preparation can go a long way.
- Canning Jars – No need to “can” or process jars in any way. Just put them directly into the freezer.
- Ziploc Bags – Yes, not the most eco-friendly, but handy and technically washable and reusable. :)
- Reusable Bags – For this application I love the pictured bag from “neat-os” because they are most like the Ziplocs I am used to (silky smooth on the inside and out).
