Frozen Pre-made Smoothie Packs

If the easy make smoothie trend is hitting you then today I’m going to share with you a little secret, a healthy life hack if you will. Something you can use for those days when there just isn’t enough time. I mean, we all want to be healthy but when days get flustered and busy, it’s easy to pick up a chocolate… or two… or three! But it doesn’t have to be that way. 2017 is all about being organized: organized at home… at work…. on the outside and especially on the inside. That’s why these frozen pre-made smoothie packs are going to change your life and save you tons of time.

 

Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Buy a range of fruit, vegetables and smoothie add-ins that you love as well as some zip-lock freezer bags.

  2. Sit down, chop up your fruit and vegetables as you usually would when making a smoothie.

  3. Think of some great fruit combinations. Lucky for you, I’ve listed 5 easy combinations below.

  4. Add your fruit combo’s to a well labelled zip-lock bag.

  5. Squeeze over some lemon or lime to help maintain freshness.

  6. Seal your bags and lay them flat, in the freezer.

  7. Every morning, pull out a frozen pre-made smoothie bag, knock it on the table a few times to loosen the pieces of fruit.

  8. Add some liquid (milk, yogurt or water) to the base of the blender followed by the fruit from your smoothie pack.

  9. Sprinkle in some smoothie add-ins (almond milk, seeds, yogurts).

  10. Blitz and enjoy while on-the-go!
