How was your St. Patrick’s Day?
The BF made corned beef and cabbage in the crock pot all day, I made a turkey shepherd’s pie and my parents came over for dinner. I also enjoyed a Guinness and a mini salted caramel cupcake while we listened to Irish music on Pandora. It was a fun night!
Today I wanted to share how I make smoothie packs. This is something I recently started doing, and it’s a huge time saver!
I had a big bag of kale that was starting to go bad. Usually when this happens, I make a batch of green juice. But I didn’t have the other fruits and veggies I usually put in green juice. So I had the bright idea to freeze the kale!
I took all the frozen fruit from my freezer and started putting a bit of each into plastic sandwich bags, along with a handful of kale.
You can just use whatever frozen fruit you have. I happened to have frozen blueberries, strawberries, peaches, raspberries, blackberries and cranberries. I highly recommend staying stocked up on frozen fruit. It’s perfect for throwing into smoothies or making a yummy pancake topping with.
If you’re a little organizer like me, you can write what is in each smoothie pack with a Sharpie on the outside of each plastic bag.
All of mine just had a bit of everything in them. I didn’t measure anything, I just threw a handful of each fruit into each pack. You could be more strategic about it and create your favorite fruit/veggie combinations.
Let me know if you try this (or do it already)! What are your fave smoothie combinations?
