Smoothie Prep

I’m all about making my life easier during the week. Now, I know throwing together some fruit and veggies into a blender isn’t a lot of work for a lunch. BUT, having it all ready to go in a baggie in the freezer sure does make my life even simpler when I run home for lunch.

 

Almost every weekend I come home with some sort of produce to up my stock in my freezer. Bananas stayed well stocked as well ready to be put into a freezer bag with the rest of the ingredients for a smoothie!

Bananas heading to the freezer!

I love to buy bananas when they are overripe and on discount for 2 reasons, one they are sweeter and give the best flavor. Two, every penny counts when staying on budget!

My trusty recipe book where I adapt a lot of my recipes from. Love the Simple Green Smoothie gals!! They have a great book out! This is an adaptation of one of their recipes!

When I make my smoothie bags I don’t add in the liquid or the protein powder. But everything else goes into the bag and into the freezer!  I like to zap mine in the microwave for about 30 seconds before adding to the blender to soften things up just a bit to make it blend easier.

This is one of my go to smoothies right now. It tastes like I’m already down in Mexico on the beach that I’m (not so) patiently waiting for November for!
