Smoothie Bags for the Freezer

Summertime is here, and the heat is kicking in way earlier than usual … we’ve already had a few 100 degree days that broke previous records from over 80 years ago! I’m also starting to get more in to the meal prep program and reducing my actual hands on time for stuff during the work week …

Which leads me to … frozen yogurt to the rescue! No, not the kind that resembles ice cream, that is NOT what I’m talking about.

What I AM talking about is frozen yogurt CUBES for smoothies and such.

Uh huh.

Makes life so much easier.

And then, to make things even better, you just cut up your fruit and add them to little bags too …

And just like that, you have Smoothie Bags. Awesome! Feel free to use recycled ziploc bags. (don’t worry, raw chicken NEVER saw this bag … it was an overestimation of how many bags I needed for freezing)

So…it’s not a big deal to do … but you do have to make an effort …

Take your yogurt (personally, I’ve started going with PLAIN yogurt) and dish it into the ice cube trays.

Smooth out the top if you are OCD, or just leave as I do.

Freeze. Once frozen, pop them out of the trays into ziploc bags and toss in the freezer.

When ready to use in a smoothie, toss a few cubes (I use 3 to 1 cup milk/juice) and add the frozen fruit along with the milk. No need to add ice! NOTE: Be sure to PEEL the bananas before you freeze … I also cut mine in to 4 to 5 pieces to give my blender a little break …

Whip it up and seriously enjoy. I love easy tips like this.  With summertime here, this is PERFECT.


Looking forward
