We finally have more daylight back & Spring is just around the corner! With the changing of the seasons I wanted to share four of my favorite pre-made smoothie bag ideas to satisfy your taste buds and streamline the process with pre-portioned vegetables and fruit! These smoothie bags are all nutrient dense and a real game changer if you’re short on time in the mornings or just want a simple, quick, and healthy breakfast. Not only is this method a huge timesaver, but will also save you money & will help you effortlessly maintain your healthy eating habits. You can store these smoothie bags in the freezer which will also help prevent your produce from rotting quickly. Pro Tip: If you have browning bananas, this is a great way to salvage them and not let them go to waste!
All of these recipes can be customized to your liking too! Some of my favorite things to add to the blender are chocolate or vanilla protein powder, greek yogurt, kefir, unsweetened nut milk, water, coconut water, and ice, if needed. When you’re ready to enjoy your smoothie, simply empty the bag into your blender, add milk, yogurt, etc. and pour into a cup!
