Stack Your Freezer With Smoothie Packs: 3 Recipes to Prep and Blend

In these challenging times, we'll take any hack, tip, or shortcut we can to take stress levels down a few notches. One surefire way to help reduce stress during the weekday hustle? Meal prepping. 

Meal prepping makes weekly meals and snacks fast and easy, and one of our favorites to prep ahead of time are smoothies. It's a total game changer! And what's better — you can get kids involved in making their very own smoothie packs. Nutritious and getting them focused for a few minutes in the kitchen? Priceless. 

Prep your smoothie packs by combining the produce, superfoods and powders you love in Stasher bags (we recommend a sandwich size Stasher for individual smoothies), and pop them in the freezer until you’re ready to blend with your liquid of choice. 

You can even label your smoothie packs with names and dates with a dry erase marker or ballpoint pen. They'll wash right off!
