Green smoothie freezer packs

I am trying to be a bit healthier lately - pretty much to make up for all those ice creams I couldn't say no to in the summer  - but sometimes it's just too hard since healthy food is not always that tasty or easy to prepare. And considering how little time I've been having, it's not always my go-to option. However, these smoothies have been my life savers.


I will just make a bunch of them when I do have some time, and freeze them. And then I'm ready to have one when I get home late, and I'm too tired or in a rush because I'm about to go skating with a friend (which is something I do most nights, actually).


There is really no right or wrong way to make them, or right or wrong ingredients or quantities, so I'm just going to share with you how I usually prepare them, but you just go with whatever you like.


What I use

  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 cup fruits
  • Milk/Yogurt/water
  • Optional: a teaspoon of oats. I add this when I want it to be more filling.

What I do is I put all the fruit and spinach leaves in a ziploc bag and freeze them. I do cut the fruit in pieces to make it easier for my blender to blend everything, since the chunks may be a bit hard when they're frozen.

In the summer, I used to make them using berries, but this time I just went with pinneaple (because it was the cheapest when we went to the supermarket) and pear (because we had some lying around at home).



I like to write down on the bag what's inside and when I prepared them, so I can make sure I don't eat anything that's been there for too long. The bags are usually good for up to 6 months.

Then, whenever you want one of these smothies, throw the content of the bag in the blender and add some liquid: water, milk, yogurt... Remember: there's no wrong way to do them. I will add water if I'm really in a hurry, or yogurt if I want it to be thicker. You just go with whatever you're feeling. Or if you have a favorite kind of milk (almond, coconut... , which by the way, I'm allergic to) you could use those too.
