I hope everyone is staying warm and healthy! It’s even freezing here in Texas and this gal is super ready for spring!
If you follow me on social media, you know I love a good smoothie. In fact, I make one every morning for my teaching partner and I. I keep this handy blender in my classroom and love having this daily dose of fruits and veggies readily available.
I prefer to use everything raw and fresh because I believe you get the most nutritional value from them that way. However, if you need something quicker and easier, I highly recommend freezing individual servings. I will tell you more about that option below.
- Kale (you can’t taste it and it is LOADED with nutrients)
- Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- Other options: Kiwi, Blackberries, Protein Powder, other supplement powders, Coconut Water (especially if you’re doing the frozen option)
If I am making my smoothie using unfrozen, fresh ingredients, I like to include a little bit of ice to make sure it is nice and cold.
Place muffin liners in a muffin tin and fill with vanilla greek yogurt and freeze overnight. Once frozen, I take them out of the muffin tin and paper and put into a baggie with my desired mixture of fruit. I always add the kale fresh, otherwise it is wilted and the taste is altered. It’s good to get the frozen mixture out a few minutes before blending so that it is softer and easier to blend.
This fills me up and gets my daily dose of fruits and veggies first thing in the morning. Plus, SO DELICIOUS! 🙂
What do you like in your smoothie? Any supplements I need to try?
Be the good.
