DIY Smoothie Packs
Giveaways Feb. 20-24th, 2012!If you're here from Pinterest, Welcome! I hope you'll take a look around and follow along! Thanks for stopping by! The inspiration for this came via pinterest, my newest obsession. I somehow managed to hold off on joining for quite some time and then finally caved a few weeks ago. I love smoothies, but with them going for $5+ a pop, it's not something I will allow myself to buy often. Here are my ingredients ready for prep. I bought pre-frozen strawberries and blueberries because it was a better deal than buying fresh and freezing myself. I chose weight watchers vanilla yogurt because, again, it was the best deal. First I measured 1tbsp scoops of yogurt into a mini muffin tin. Next I got to chopping my fresh fruit! And then arranged them on a silpat mat and popped it in my freezer! A few hours later when everything was frozen, I laid everything out to prepare to bag my individual "smoothie mixes". After they are all bagged up, pop them in the freezer!
