I was looking for something that was a little bit healthier and yet portable for our breakfast meals during the week. It’s important that breakfast can be eaten in the car and on the go because let’s face it, many times my car’s dash board is my breakfast table. So I jumped on the smoothie train and put together these smoothie packs that I threw in the freezer until I am ready to use one. It’s so easy to learn how to make break smoothies!
And let me say that these baggy rack holders that I bought on Amazon a few years ago have been a game changer when it comes to meal prepping. I absolutely love them!
How to Make Breakfast Smoothies
I started by filling 4 sandwich sized baggies with a small handful of fresh spinach. Then I added whatever fruit I had on hand, frozen blueberries, raspberries and half a banana. I topped off each bag with a big tablespoon of peanut butter. I labeled each bag and stuck them all in the freezer.
When I am in the mood for a smoothie, I pull one out, throw it in a blender with a handful of ice and about a cup or so of almond milk. You can add in more milk if it’s too thick. Like I said it has to be able to be consumed as I am driving to work, so it can’t be too thick for a straw.
Try making your own breakfast smoothie and let me know how you liked it. Next time I will plan out my fruit pairings a little bit better. But it is a good way to get rid of fruit that is on its last leg and either has to be eaten or thrown in the trash.
Tell me in a comment below, what do you like to put in your breakfast smoothies? I would love for you to share your best smoothie recipes.
