A busy lifestyle can be streamlined with make-ahead frozen smoothie packs in a variety of whole-food combinations. Just wash, chop, measure, and bag smoothie ingredients together and place them in the fridge or freezer. Then just add them with liquid or ice to your Vitamix container and blend for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack.

For easy grab-and-go assembly, place several smoothie packs on the same shelf of your freezer. If desired, place your chosen recipe next to your Vitamix machine, along with travel mugs and napkins. This strategy is particularly helpful for caregivers and older children, who may arrive home before adult family members, hungry at the end of their school day or athletic practice.
