This smoothie from Fit Foodie Finds features strawberries and spinach, which are at their seasonal best in the spring. Unsweetened almond milk serves as a low-sugar alternative to juices. Plus, the recipe is designed to be meal-prepped and separated into four freezer bags to grab, blend and go in the morning.
For the bag
- 2 cups (480 ml) bananas, sliced
- 2 cups (480 ml) strawberries, whole
- 4 cups (960 ml) spinach
- 4 teaspoons (20 ml) chia seeds
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- 1/2–1 cup (120–240 ml) unsweetened almond milk
First, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, evenly spread out 2 cups of sliced bananas, 2 cups of whole strawberries. Place in the freezer for about 2 hours or until completely frozen.
Next, take 4 quart-size freezer bags and write the date and Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie on the front. Add 1 cup of frozen fruit, a handful of spinach and a teaspoon of chia seeds to each bag. Before sealing, make sure you squeeze as much air out as possible to prevent freezer burn. Seal and place in the freezer for later use.
Once you’re ready to blend, just add about 1/2–1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (depending on how thick you like your smoothies) and a scoop of your favorite protein powder.
