Smoothie Mix

Do you and your family love making smoothies? For me they can be a quick breakfast on the go. For many people they also are a great way to get those veggies into their picky eaters.

My favorite way to make smoothies is to make the smoothie base into ice cubes and then pop a few frozen cubes along with some milk, and for me I throw in a scoop of protein powder and hit the blender and in a matter of minutes I am out the door.

Truthfully, I never use a recipe. I usually just throw in the blender whatever I have on hand like this mix below: Strawberries (some fresh some frozen), blueberries, spinach, pumpkin puree, strawberry yogurt, a little milk I needed to use up, and  I had about 1 scoop left of banana protein powder, so in it went.  If you would like some exact recipes to follow I'll share a few of my favorite links at the bottom of the post.

Puree your mix till well blended.
Pour into ice cube trays and freeze till solid, then pop out cubes and store in a freezer safe container or bag.

Now your ready to pop a few of these cubes into your blender or bullet blender, with some added milk and or yogurt, protein powder your a  moment away from a quick on the go smoothie.

Ok as promised here are a few links to some great smoothie recipes:
