smoothie time

Since the weather is still undecided on if it's going to be spring or not, I decided that regardless of what it was like outside, it was still time to bust out my blender and frozen fruit to whip up some smoothies for after my workouts.  (I usually only have these when it's warm outside, you see)

These smoothies are seriously my favorite and they taste like candy AND, they're good for you.  Double bonus.

Sometimes it's hard for me to eat all of the fruit I buy before it starts going bad, so instead of tossing it out, I cut it up and stick it in the freezer so that I can make fruit smoothies with them later on.

Last night I whipped up a batch that had frozen strawberries, blackberries, pineapple, and banana's in it.  I also add a little OJ and a carton of non-fat yogurt.  They're soooooo gooooood. 

I would give you a more accurate recipe but I don't have one.  Just toss some stuff in the blender, hit pulse a few times and you're good to go. 

I store mine in the fridge for a few days or you can put them in the freezer so that they last a little longer.  I usually finish the pitcher in no time, so I don't have a problem with these things going bad!

You could also add a little protein powder to yours too to help your muscles and stuff.  I have some but sometimes I think it tastes gross.  You be the judge.


  1. I love smoothies. Hadn't thought about freezing fruit before it goes bad though...genius.

  2. ohh my goodness that sounds amazing.
    I recently tried a smoothie involving avacado, kiwi, and spinich, and it was delish.....surprisingly!
    Hope you are having a lovely weekend!
