Last week in a cold induced fog I accidently put the kale back in the freezer instead of the fridge when I was making my green smoothie. I found it the next morning and decided to see how frozen kale tasted in my smoothie. I couldn't tell a difference. Since freezing the kale didn't seem to impact the flavor or texture of the smoothie, I decided to make some freezer packs. So all I have to do is dump it in the blender add some liquid and that's it.
Here's what I did.
I used my blender as a measuring tool. I put the kale in lightly packed to the 4 cup mark. Then I placed the kale into a freezer bag. You can use any greens though.
Along with a banana cut into pieces. Frozen bananas taste awesome in smoothies.
Plus a handful of frozen fruit.
I should be able to reuse the bags several times.
Then when you are ready to make the smoothie, dump the frozen fuit and veggies into the blender.
Add 2-2.5 cups of liquid. I usually do 1 cup of almond milk and 1-1.5 cups of water.
Blend it all up.
It took me about 10 minutes to put together the packs. Now I have smoothies ready for the rest of the week.
