they’re as cold as ice

anyone who makes smoothies and shakes on a regular basis knows that you need to consume it shortly after preparation’ otherwise you will witness a very unpleasant transformation occurring from yummy bright-colored food-into gray matter of some kind.

this is why you cannot make your shakes ahead for the week.

or can you?

I love my morning smoothies, do not have a blender at work, and since I spend some time at lunch time cutting my salads at work i happen to think fussing over breakfast as well  is a bit too much.

I decided to try to make my smoothies ahead and freeze them .

this is my process:

FROZEN BANANAS

freeze ripe bananas-even the really soft ones are fine for freezing though you need to understand that when you take them out of the freezer- no thawing is supposed to be involved , or else they will not resemble the bananas you used to know. they will be a mushy mess-so just use immediately as you take out of the freezer.

*I keep my freezer  bananas cut to halves , and before putting them in a zip-lock bag I lay them on parchment paper in the freezer for a few hours that way they don’t cling desperately to each other .

to 4  frozen  bananas I add a cup of  soy milk,  3 handfuls of spinach,  a handful or 2 of blueberries/chocolate powder depending what i feel like at that moment,  1 tbsp chia seeds, a handful of oatmeal , 2-3 medjhool dates and a cup or 2 of vega-one.

you can definitely make these smoothies without the vega one, and this not an add for them*(just reminding my disclaimer click the link to read it again-discla).

I blend everything in my vitamix , if more liquid is necessary then i add cold water, and then i pour the blender’s content to 5 disposable coffee cups that have lids to match and off they go to the freezer-each work day i pack one of these n my cooler and after a an hour at work they are good to eat. i add 1-2 tbsp of grounded flax seeds -and voila.

enjoy! cooliflower.
