Get your fruits and veggies!

Thought I would share a quick post about an easy way to get fruits and veggies in your diet.  I purchased a Vitamix a couple of years back.  It was a bigger purchase, I got mine at Costco when they had a promotion.  Smoothies are a great way to get fruits and veggies and they are quick and easy.

I have found that there are times when my produce will go bad cause I haven't been diligent at getting those smoothies made.  A friend posted on FB about doing up freezer packets for your smoothies, so you just have to grab a bag from the freezer, add your liquid and you are good to go!

Yesterday I made a trip to Costco and purchased a big bag of spinach, mango, blueberries, some fresh strawberries, bananas and came home to prep the grab n go freezer bags.

I should have taken a picture before they froze, the color looks so pretty.  I even added a tablespoon of yogurt right in, even thought I would try freezing a spoon of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon right into the frozen mix.  Had one this morning for breakfast and it was easy peasy!






Have a great week end and bottoms up on those fruits and veggies!

I have a Vita mix, don't use it like I should simply because it makes such a mess getting all those veggies, and fruits together! This is a great Idea, one I am going to use, thanks for sharing. Enjoy your weekend!

Great idea! I don't have a vitamix but a blender should work I imagine.

What kind of liquid do you use?

I've heard of these Vitamix machines. I only have a blender to make smoothies and it's fine for the few that I do make. It's a nice way to get your fruit and veggies in the diet in winter. Enjoy!

Sounds like a splendid idea for juices and veggie broths...

Great idea! My Bosch blender isn't quite a Vitamix, but does a pretty good job.

Great idea! I purchase from Costco also and sometimes things do go bad before we've used it all...thanks for sharing!
Blessings,
Cindy
