🍲 Meal Prepping
Create serving-size packs of prepared fruit and place them into freezer-safe bags or containers and freeze.
When ready to make the smoothie remove a bag from the freezer, place the frozen ingredients into a blender with ½ cup of yogurt, and blend until smooth. Because of the frozen fruit, the smoothie will be extra thick.
If you don't like your smoothies thick, let them stand for 5 - 10 minutes to defrost. Or, blend in some water or more yogurt to get the consistency you like.
- Smoothies are best consumed soon after making, but they can be stored in the fridge for one to two days.
- Some fruits like apples and bananas tend to oxidize when left for some time and can turn the drink a brownish color.
- The taste may also change slightly depending on how long it's been in the fridge.
- Smoothies or smoothie fruit packs can be frozen for up to three months.
To freeze prepared smoothies - make the smoothies and pour them into individual freezer-safe containers or bottles with lids. Leave about 5 cm (1 inch) clear from the top, which will allow for expansion.
