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 cup pineapple
1 cup strawberries
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.
