Summer Smoothies Made Easy

 

Being the busy people that we are today, it is helpful when healthy snacks and meals are fast and easy to make. This summer I have decided to help myself out by making smoothies more easily accessible. Smoothies can often create a big mess and can be time consuming because they require many different fruits and juices, and sometimes vegetables and powders. Making a big batch of your favorite smoothie and freezing it can make this process easy when you are on the move. This can be a huge time saver!

Summer Smoothies

Here are the steps to make-ahead summer smoothies:

  1. Make your favorite smoothie! Strawberry & banana with orange juice. Kale, chia seeds, banana & almond milk. Mango & pineapple with rice milk. Any type you like. In my experience, though, smoothies are best when you limit ingredients to 3 or 4, and are best for freezing if they do not have ice in them.
  2. Pour your smoothies into 6 wide-mouth pint Mason jars. Leave some room at the top (one to two inches). When the smoothies freeze, they will expand.
  3. Freeze your smoothies!
  4. Enjoy one of your frozen smoothies whenever you want a fast and easy meal or snack. Just remember to give it time to thaw out!
