Green smoothies are fairly quick and easy, and since I’m having foot surgery on Thursday, I made pre-made packets of fruits and veggies I can just dump into the blender with almond milk and blend.
It took about two hours to prepare kits for a month of green smoothies. I like this idea a lot and will do it again next month.
1. Gather ingredients
Gather your fruits, vegetables, and superfoods. I have an amazing Thrifty Produce store near my home.
2. Chop into chunks
3. Pack in freezer baggies
I used gallon-size baggies to pack double portions. Here are some bags half-full with the vegetables.
Then add fruit and label.
I used quart-size baggies to pack vegetables and fruits separately (trying both to see which works better for me).
It is so much easier to eat nutritiously when it is convenient!
