Recipe - Ready to Go Frozen Green Smoothie

I've been trying to put our Vitamix to better use, not that whipping up delicious homemade hot chocolate is necessarily a bad use.  We all love smoothies, but rarely have the time or all the ingredients on hand to make them for breakfast.  I decided to freeze a bunch of smoothie ingredient bags in the hopes that we would incorporate healthy green smoothies more often.  It's worked like a charm!  We all love this recipe and it's so easy to just throw it in the blender, adding a couple wet ingredients, and have it ready to go in a pinch.

Ready to Go Frozen Green Smoothie

1/2 banana
1 cup pineapple
1 cup strawberries
1/2 orange
2 cups spinach
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
2 teaspoons honey
1 cup water

Combine all fruits and spinach in a small freezer bag and store in freezer.  When ready to prepare, put contents of the freezer bag in a high powered blender.  Add yogurt, honey and water.  Mix on smoothie setting.
