5 Make-Ahead Smoothie Packs for Breakfast in a Flash
Smoothies are a great, satisfying breakfast option. And while they aren’t difficult to make, prepping and measuring the ingredients every morning can be cumbersome and time-consuming. If you’re an active smoothie drinker (or are looking to become one), I highly recommend mastering the art of the freezer pack. Prep all your ingredients in advance, throw them into a zip-top baggie, and stash it in the freezer until you’re ready to blend. When you’re in need of a quick weekday breakfast, simply dump everything into a blender, add some liquid, and blend it up. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
This snapshot will guide you through prepping and assembling five different freezer-friendly smoothie packs. Make one of each or a bunch of just one flavor — it’s up to you!
5 Snapshot Recipes for Freezer Smoothie Packs
- How to use them: These smoothie packs can be stashed in the freezer for up to three months before blending. When ready to use, just dump the prepped ingredients into the blender. If the frozen fruit has stuck together, lightly hit it against the counter while still in the bag to break it up. Add liquid and blend.The below recipes call for either almond or coconut milk, but use any milk of your choosing.
- Serving size: Each recipe makes enough for one smoothie. If you want to prep a week’s worth of smoothies at once, just scale up the recipe and make multiple bags.
