I was browsing through my friends’ feed on Instagram, and I came across this photo posted by my friend (I encourage you to follow her for inspiration on health and fitness) Lo Christine (@laughalwaysfitness):
I instantly became inspired to prep a week’s worth of smoothies for myself! It had been a while since I made myself a smoothie, so I challenged myself to prepare the ingredients ahead of time, to make it easier to complete a full week of morning smoothies! It was so easy and I felt more energized every morning after my smoothie. No sugar was added, and I didn’t even miss it!
I prepped the smoothies in 7 plastic cups, then zip-locked them and placed them in the freezer. The cups not only served as a way to store the frozen smoothie ingredients, but they held the smoothie once I had mixed it with the Almond Milk in the blender! So It was super easy to stay on track, because I didn’t have to spend extra time looking for a container in which to store the made smoothie.

If you’re looking for some good smoothie blenders here are a couple that I have tried and recommend. For a budget of $15 you can’t go wrong with a Hamilton Beach personal single serve blender with travel lid. Click the pic to see it on Amazon.
If you have a budget of $50 you can go with the Ninja Food Processor which also comes with containers of different sizes. Click the pic to see it on Amazon.
Here are the smoothie flavors I created:
Cherry Peach Spinach
Cherry Strawberry Blueberry
Blueberry Peach Spinach
I challenge you to the Smoothie a Day Challenge! Which Smoothie flavors will you create?

I love this, such a great idea to pre prep and put in ziplock bags!
I was just thinking about adding smoothies back into my breakfast routine, I think I’m going to do it! Thanks for the inspiration.
