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).
I sent this photo to a friend and she replied "that's just white chocolate with green food coloring, isn't it?" 😂 pic.twitter.com/gpX0P5vcpA— Be (@lovefrombe) 10 de septiembre de 2016
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
- 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.
Question of the day
Do you have any favorite healthy (or healthy-ish) recipes?
