Make-ahead smoothies are a healthy way to start your busy morning. I love smoothies, but I found it was taking too much time each morning to get all the ingredients out, make the smoothie, then put everything away.
Most of my go-to meals I use formulas instead of recipes. The general formula allows flexibility to change things up without thinking it very hard. They allow me to work with what I have. And if you give a person a recipe the can cook for a day, give them a formula, they can cook for a lifetime.
Like everyone, my mornings are a bit hectic. I must get my kids ready, and lunches packed for daycare, pack food for my husband and me, get my car packed for my job, and feed the goats. I try to get as prepared as I can the night before, but I’m always looking for ways to simplify.
Batch “cooking” smoothies is a great time saver. Making them ahead of time is just more efficient. Most smoothie ingredients can go straight from the freezer to the blender which is a huge advantage. Smoothies are also highly customizable, which is also great.

I like that I can store, blend, and drink all in the same jar. This saves time and dishes. If you have a different blender you can store your make-ahead smoothies in the container you plan to drink it out of.
This smoothie will save you time, and make it easy to start your day off with a healthy breakfast.
