Fresh Green Smoothie Frozen Cubes

 

Green smoothies are one of my favorite breakfasts but it is sometimes difficult to get fresh greens here in my small town in the midwest. So to extend the life of the fresh greens I am able to acquire, I started pre-blending and freezing them into little green cubes. 

 

This recipe is so easy, it really can’t even be called a recipe! 

 

Take your choice of greens, whatever you have on hand, and blend it together with a little water. You want the mixture to be on the thicker side so use a minimal amount of liquid. After blending, pour into ice cube trays and let freeze for about 6 hours. Then transfer to another storage container and you have fresh greens for your smoothies no matter what the weather is outside!! 

 

These greens are a sure fire way to boost your nutrition in the winter months especially. 

 

Having these on hand is also a way to make your morning routine a little easier (and healthier) by having it prepped and ready to go. 

 

When you’re ready to make a smoothie, simply combine 2 or 3 cubes (depending on the size of your ice cube tray) with a frozen banana and other fruits, veggies, and add-ins of your choice. Blend and you have breakfast covered!

Tips for the Best Green Smoothie Cubes

 

Don’t wait to the last minute to blend and freeze them as you want the smoothie cubes to be as nutritionally dense as possible. As soon as you purchase the greens, blend them and freeze them. This way you will have a rotation of greens always ready to go! 

 

Mix greens together! Don’t be afraid to mix up what greens you place together. This particular round, I used kale and spinach. Other combos to try are: chard and spinach, arugula with romaine and kale, or romaine with cucumber and spinach! 

 

Swap the liquid for extra nutrition. Water is the easiest thing to freeze with in this recipe but it is far from the only thing you can use! Here are some other ideas to bring your freezer smoothie cubes together: 

 

  • Juice
  • Coconut water / milk (only use if not allergic to tree nuts!) 
  • Blended protein beverages
  • Milk of your choice
