Healthy Freezer-Pack Smoothie

Pre-mixing the fruit and then freezing it makes preparing this healthy smoothie a breeze.

Pinterest is probably the most time consuming website I frequent. I have a Facebook, I tweet most days, but Pinterest is my guilty pleasure. I have been known to spend entire afternoons browsing the endless categories found there. Some days I swoon over black and white photos of Cary Grant or lust after those cute wedges I must have for summer. Other days my time spent pinning is in the form of DIY crafts, helpful organization tips, and of course, recipes.

This past week while perusing Pinterest, and stumbled on a recipe for smoothie packs. I was intrigued, so I clicked the link. Not only did I love every ingredient listed, this recipe would also save me time during my haphazard workweek routine. This could very well be the perfect combination of deliciousness and organization. I had to try it out.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 16 ounce bags of strawberries, raspberries, and peaches
  • 4 bananas
  • 8 Freezer bags

Divide ingredients into 8 equal parts, place in separate freezer bags, and store in freezer. Simple, right?

When the time comes to turn one of these packs into a smoothie, here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 frozen smoothie pack
  • 1 cup light vanilla soy milk (I used organic nonfat milk instead)
  • 1 handful baby spinach (or leafy green of your choice. Kale is a great alternative.)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Toss all of that into a blender, mix until smooth, and enjoy!
