You might remember one of my fellow Lilly-loving friends, Lindsey (on the left in the photo below). This picture was taken at my Lilly Pulitzer themed Stella and Dot party a few weeks ago. They are both wearing vintage Lilly! How fun!
Anyways, Lindsey is also a fresh fruit and veggie lover but often can't find time to prepare and fit them in her own diet...much like my family. On facebook the other day, she posted an ingenious way of getting all your fruits in veggies in your diet and in a VERY easy way! Smoothies!
Basically, you make pre-made frozen smoothies bags. Then in the morning, you pull one out, add some orange juice and blend....that's it! Here's how it works.
Buy all your fruits and veggies. Cut, slice and dice and then separate into bags (I made 12 bags, each bag containing two smoothies). My shopping list included:
- 1 bunch of kale, 1 bunch of spinach, 2 apples, 2 mangoes, 3 bananas
- 1 bag each of frozen raspberries, peaches, blueberries and pineapple
- grapes, carrots and a bunch of strawberries
Lindsey likes to add cucumber and celery, but I left those out of mine. It's all about your preference. I also added a clump of wheat grass to each bag (not pictured) from Lallie's wheat grass crop.
Here are pictures showing how much I added to each bag....basically a little of each but again, your preference.
