Make-Ahead Smoothie

23 06 2011

Picked up a great tip from Martha with this make-ahead smoothie idea! You can whip up a batch of this the night or few nights before you want to have it, then store it in a zip-lock bag in the freezer. The night before you want it, transfer the bag to the refrigerator and it should be perfect for you in the morning…genius!  Snip off a corner of the bag and pour it in a glass or to-go cup for your way to work.

While Martha had the tip and the ratio of ingredients, I made my own recipe (you can play with different fruit too)!

The following serves 2:

  • 1 mango, diced (about 10 oz or so total)
  • 1/2 cup skim milk – you could also use Almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of ice
  • Blend until smooth
  • My extra tip: I felt this still needed a little something, so I added two medium strawberries, diced – and it gave this just the little extra tang it needed!
