Healthy Fruit Smoothie Freezer Packs

Healthy Fruit Smoothie Freezer Packs

Smoothie Recipe

Not many recipes can top a sweet, refreshing smoothie for breakfast. It’s amazingly nutritious because you can throw anything from kale and beans to almond butter and chia seeds in there, it offers all the fiber, protein, and healthy fats you need to give you energy and help you lose weight, and it’s lightning-fast to make. So how do you make one of the quickest breakfasts in even less time? You make these healthy fruit smoothie freezer packs . 

Smoothie Prep

All you need is 20 minutes of prep time, and instead of your smoothie taking fifteen to twenty minutes to pull together each morning, just grab one of these healthy fruit smoothie freezer packs and you’ll be done in about 60 seconds. Not only that, it allows you to use ingredients that may take a little more time to prep like melon, avocado, apples, and pears that you can’t find in the freezer section. And you’ll save money by buying greens and fruit in bulk — and they’ll actually get used instead of going bad in your fridge. Frozen fruit smoothie packs are also a great way to use up fruit that’s almost too ripe to eat.

These frozen smoothie packs are made with just six ingredients: kale, bananas, pineapples, strawberries, mango, and avocado. They add up to 243 calories, which allows you to customize your smoothie by adding any extra ingredients such as protein powder or coconut water. Of course, you don’t have to stick to these ingredients. Another one of my favorite smoothie recipes is here. Hopefully this will inspire you to make your own creative combinations.

INGREDIENTS

10 cups spinach or baby kale

2 1/2 bananas

2 1/2 cups pineapples

2 1/2 cups strawberries

2 1/2 cups mango

1 1/4 ripe avocados

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut up all ingredients
  2. Grab five freezer-safe sealable plastic bags and divide the ingredients between them. Add: 2 cups of greens, 1/2 a banana (sliced), 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup mango, and 1/4 avocado.
  3. Close them up and feel free to write any notes on the bag such as the date or ingredients you want to add later, then place them in the freezer.
  4. When you’re ready to make your smoothie, empty the contents of the freezer pack into your blender, add the extra ingredients like water, fruit juice, coconut water, almond or soy milk, protein powder, flax seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, beans, tofu, or whatever you please. Blend it up and enjoy!

Let me insert that smoothies are a great aid in weight loss, especially now that Spring is here. (Gotta get bikini-ready!!!) While there absolutely are health benefits in frozen smoothies including fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, sometimes they contain lots of sugar (from fruit) that isn’t good for you. So pace yourselves, Babes!!!

    That is such an awesome idea! I’m a smoothie fiend, and making these packs ahead of time is an excellent way to save some major time when I’m rushed on a weekday.

    I am always looking for a way to streamline my mornings. This usually involves drinking my breakfast, lol. Smoothie packs are super easy to throw together and just make everything so convenient!

    It is such a pain to make a smoothie every morning. I sadly admit that I just grab something sugary instead. Preparing frozen portion sizes ahead of time is the perfect solution.

    This is such a brilliant idea. My daughter has just started her second year of uni. She hates eating solid foods so early in the morning because it makes her feel unwell, so she always makes a smoothie. And every morning, I hear her grumbling under her breath about chopping up all the fruits and pulling the berries out of the freezer. I’ll suggest she tries this next week.

      Yeah, it definitely sucks having to do this in the morning especially when you’re short on time!

    Why have I never thought to do this before? It’s pretty genius. I’m going to try it this week.

    I love smoothies, but I’m finding I really have no time to make them the day of. This is a genius idea!

    This is such a fab idea! I love smoothies but don’t always have the time to stand there and chop and prep the fruit. I’ll definitely be making some of these and popping them in the freezer.

    This is a really great idea; especially for busy mornings! I’ll have to prep these this weekend!

    I love this idea so much! I will have to make these for my kids; this would make such a better snack for after school than what they currently eat!

    This sounds like a great idea for a quick and healthy breakfast. I would definitely try it out.

    This is such a great idea! I’ll definitely have to do this once I’m home for a while. Definitely need to get my health back in check
