Summer Smoothie Prep!

Summer Smoothie Prep!

Summer time = Smoothie time!

I don’t know about you, but I am a big member of the smoothie bandwagon. As soon as the weather warms up in the spring, I am searching for new smoothie concoctions. But when you are turning a smoothie into a meal, it takes time. And when the clock is ticking at 6:30 am to get out the door, chopping up fresh fruit and washing greens isn’t always high on the priority list. Coffee is 😉

Last summer I found a great post on Pinterest about smoothie prep and it saved me tons of time, so I thought I’d share it, and all my summer favourite smoothie recipes with you all!

I prepare all my fruits and vegetables into Ziplock baggies, and write on the front of the bag all the extra add in’s required. So every morning I just need to dump my bag into my Vitamix, add my seeds and liquids, and we are good to go!

I have taken some of my favourite well known smoothie recipes and added some oils, seeds and avocado to give them a boost.
