Easy Make Ahead Freezer Smoothies

School started today!  Holy cow!  Where did the summer go?  I say this every year, but this summer really did fly by.  So much good stuff, great memories, fun times!  Now it’s back to business as usual.  Back to schedules, homework, sports,  a regular bedtime, and most importantly eating regular healthy meals!

Breakfast.  Although, make ahead smoothies can be the perfect after school snacks as well; my Ainslie loves to quick whip up a smoothie after she gets home from volleyball practice.  Freezer smoothies makes it so much easier for my kids to make themselves a quick healthy breakfast or after school treat!

 

 

Easy Make Ahead Freezer Smoothies great for quick back to school snack or breakfast!We love smoothies, but I have to admit, I do not love making them.  I am not a morning person, so the less I have to think in the morning the better, by having all the ingredients bagged up and in the freezer ahead of time,  the only decision I need to make is which flavor smoothie I want!  I just need to open my freezer grab a bag, add some milk, blend, and Voila!

Mango Ginger Power Smoothie

The recipe below is a basic guideline for the typical smoothie that we make in our home, I’m sure there are so many more combinations that you could come up with and keep on hand in your freezer for a quick vitamin and protein packed breakfast!  Honestly the sky is the limit with this one!

Easy Make Ahead Freezer Smoothies great for quick back to school snack or breakfast!As I sit here and reflect on the past few weeks, sending Noah off to college and preparing for the regular school year to start again for the younger three, Ken turning 50…me getting closer to 50, many things come to mind.  Mostly how thankful I am.  Thankful for our health, safety, freedoms, family, friends, church, food in our bellies, eyes to see, ears to hear, arms to hug, people to hug, all the resources available to my family.  All of my basic needs are met everyday, most of the world cannot say this.  I’m the minority.   There are so many people who work behind the scenes, of my life, to make my easy life happen.  I pray that as I go through each day I wouldn’t take one person for granted; grocery clerks, public servants, my pastor, physicians, mail deliverers, teachers, mechanics/handymen, technicians, scientists, and farmers.  Let us not forget our farmers and the many farm families that work so hard everyday to bring healthy foods and dairy products to our tables.  Dang imagine if every farmer was yanked from the earth??!! We’d be in a heap of trouble…and super hangry.

I’m pretty confident that won’t happen…another thing to be thankful for!

What are you thankful for today?

I’m also thankful for you!

    What a great idea. I know if I spent a bit of time in prep work, I’d have a smoothie more often.

      It’s true, it takes me less than 20 minutes to bag up 15-20 smoothies and then we are good for a couple weeks! I hope you are well! Thanks for being such a faithful reader. XO, Sheila
