Pre-Made Smoothie Kits {Save Time & Money}

I really much prefer smoothies for breakfast, eating something just gives me too heavy of a feeling that throws me off. But, on busy mornings, I don’t always have the time to put them together.

That is where these kits come in, they save a ton of time by having most of the fruits already together, but they also saved me money and helped me eliminate some wastefulness!

Each week I of course stock up on produce, but sometimes I don’t get to it all or some of the fruit is a little too tart to enjoy. So this last weekend, after I went shopping, I cleaned out the fridge of some fruit and veggies from last week that I really wouldn’t eat in meals this week, but they weren’t completely bad yet. That is when I thought they would be perfect for the kits! For this last week, I had a bag of spinach, some shredded carrot, plums, cantaloupe, and strawberries. I cut them all up and put them in a bowl to mix together, I can’t believe all this produce is only three days of smoothies (enough for a smoothie for me and Wade and a little one for Avery). Then I put them in vacuum bags, because I had them available, you could just use freezer bags too. But I was having fun with the vacuum sealer. Then I just sealed them, dated them and popped them in the freezer.

When it came to the morning, I threw a banana in my blender with some yogurt, superfoods, and coconut milk and broke up up the frozen kit and blended it up! It was great! Then I threw them in mommy and me mason jars ( I just used my crop-a-dile to make a hole for the straw in the lid) and we were on our way!
