The most mind-blowing smoothie hack ever : DIY Smoothie Packs


Prep in the name of love. We mean it. Frozen smoothie packs will change your life. When you need to rush out the door faster than you can sing the entire length of Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On, these smoothie packs will be a lifesaver. The last thing you want to do in the morning is to chop and peel oddly-shaped citrus fruits while you're half asleep. That's a health hazard. Reserve one day for smoothie prep: you'll have delicious and nutritious drinks for the rest of the week.

How to make DIY Smoothie Packs

Make sure that you mostly freeze produce in these bags. You'll be adding liquid, powders, nuts, and nut butters on the day that you decide to make the smoothies.

  1. Label freezer-safe plastic bags or Tupperware containers with smoothie ingredients and days of the week. Use permanent marker and masking tape to create simple labels.
  2. Chop ingredients up and portion them into your labelled bags.
  3. Store bags in freezer and blend on designated days of the week. If you need to add powders, seeds, water, or milk, add those in after you take the ingredients out of the freezer.
