In a modern landscape where people are expected to always be on-the-go, sitting down to enjoy a warm and hearty meal seems almost impossible. With piling deadlines and long commute hours, the prospect of eating healthy seems even more elusive. You likely leave home in the morning to simply grab coffee and bagel at the nearest cafe, which isn’t an ideal way of living healthier.
Thankfully, meal preps are slowly gaining traction. They’re designed specifically to help people address their nutritional needs, particularly when it comes to eating better and healthier. Meal preps can be prepared almost a week ahead of time, and can be reheated whenever necessary.
Although thriving, most people now wonder—can smoothies be prepared the same way? The short answer is yes—and it doesn’t have to be messy. Here are three tried and tested methods for you to try:
Those mason jars can do more than just house your cooking ingredients—they’re the perfect smoothie containers! Make your smoothie however you wish, and simply pour it into a mason jar. Make sure to close the lid tightly, depositing it in your fridge for 2 to 3 hours. You can also freeze it for up to three months, but keep a close eye on it!
As soon as you’re ready to drink your smoothie, let it thaw for a few hours at room temperature. Make sure to give it a good shake before drinking, or opt to carry it around on-the-go!
If you don’t want to store an already made smoothie, you can opt for the freezer pack method. Here, you only need to replace all your smoothie ingredients in an airtight bag, all without the liquid. You can add anything, anywhere from your favorite fruits up, leafy greens, and even tasty add-ons! You can place this bad in the freezer for up to 3 months.
If you’re ready to drink it, you simply have to deposit your ingredients to the blender, making sure to add water or other liquid of choice. Depending on the time you have, you may need to thaw it out before blending. Whatever the case, you’ll have great tasting smoothies—even if it’s been stored for months!
If you don’t have much space for mason jars and airtight bags, you can still meal prep your smoothies by using an item already known to your freezer—your ice cube trays! You can pre-blend your smoothie, and then carefully pour them onto the tray for freezing.
You can quickly have a smoothie in the morning, just make sure to thaw it out before leaving in the morning. You’ll be able to consume your breakfast on the way to work, without the hassle of preparing your ingredients, chopping up fruits, and scrambling around for the cacao powder.
Whether you’re looking to overhaul your current breakfast menu or simply wish to add more nutrition into your hectic schedule, choosing to prep your smoothies ahead make for a wonderful meal. It’s one of the easiest ways to create a consistently healthy morning habit, one that only requires a bit of your time. Blend ahead, or slice and store—the choice is yours.
