Smoothies are all the rage right now. Especially green smoothies or at least ones that have spinach or kale in them. A bit ago I showed you how I freeze yogurt and make yogurt cubes, ready to go for smoothie making. I’ve put my cute little green ice tray to good use and decided to freeze left over carrot juice too. Which got me thinking…… why not make my own individual frozen smoothie packs like the ones I’ve purchased at Costco for quick making smoothies? Having pre-made packs with all the ingredients right at your fingertips may save you decision of NOT making a healthy snack over choosing something unhealthy. These make smoothie making quick! Fast!
Frozen Smoothie Packs – Make Your Own!
Having frozen smoothie bags makes it so much easier for kids to make a smoothie. Less work for mom, less mess and it makes the kid feel a little more independent, not to mention that you still control what goes in their smoothie! Better nutrition! Every bit helps.
For these packs, I chose:
- Mixed Berries
- Frozen Carrot Juice
- Frozen Yogurt Cubes
Having cute baggies may help your kids think it’s extra special. I just thought they were cute! Now all my family needs to do is grab a baggie and start making their smoothie.
I use my magic bullet when making just one smoothie, but you could certainly make larger packs for serving multiple smoothies. I plopped these ingredients into my magic blender cup, added enough water to fill it half way, and blended. That’s it! No adding ice since the frozen yogurt and carrot juice gave me enough slush.
I’m thinking I need to freeze my left over green juice and add green juice cubes to my frozen smoothie packs.
Other addable options:
- toasted flax seeds
- frozen protein powder cubes – mix with water first of course
- apple juice cubes
- beet juice cubes
- chia seeds
- frozen bananas, pineapple, kiwi, mango……possibilities are endless.
- frozen canned pumpkin
Go ahead……. repin this!
