Both wholesome and delicious, smoothies are a great choice for breakfast—not only because they pack a nutritional punch that’s essential to starting your day, but because they’re so easy to take with you on the go. For even more convenience, use your Vitamix blender to create large batches of smoothies ahead of time, and freeze individual servings for a week’s worth of healthy breakfasts.
Use Your Vitamix Blender and Store in Freezer-Safe Container
Simply blend the ingredients of your favorite healthy smoothie recipes and pour into a small, freezer-safe container or jar. If you plan on using a mason jar or glass container, make sure to leave a couple inches at the top so the mixture has room to expand without breaking the glass.
Thaw Your Smoothie Serving Overnight
When you’d like to enjoy a smoothie for your morning meal, thaw an individual serving in the refrigerator overnight. By the time you wake up and you’re ready to head out the door, your smoothie will be the perfect consistency for sipping. If you forget to place a smoothie in the fridge the night before, remove one from the freezer in the morning and allow it to thaw as you get ready for the day or start your commute.
