Healthy Green Smoothie Packets For Your Freezer

These easy and healthy Make Ahead Green Smoothie Packs will simplify your morning–and they’re packaged in reusable bags for less waste.

I’d seen these make ahead smoothie packs all over Pinterest. When I finally made them, I realized they solved two of my pressing smoothie problems:

  1. Pre-washed spinach that goes bad before I can use it all. The small bags are too small, the big boxes are too big.
  2. Morning laziness. Throwing some fruit and spinach into the blender doesn’t seem like much effort. But, well, you know how it goes.

What do you put in green smoothie packs?

Green smoothie freezer packs are totally customizable. Spinach is my favorite leafy green to use because it’s mild tasting. You could also use kale, but start with a smaller amount since it has a stronger (and sometimes bitter) flavor.

Beyond that, it’s up to you. You can use fresh or frozen fruit in whatever combination you like. Some ideas:

  • Mixed Berry: strawberry, blueberry, raspberry
  • Tropical: pineapple and mango
  • Fresh or frozen cherries
  • Oranges
  • Peaches
