Easy Freezer Smoothie Packs for New Moms | Mother Rising

One of the things my kids and I enjoy drinking during the summer are smoothies and these freezer smoothie packs make it EASY. I like easy. Also, I got a root canal done today so having these freezer smoothie packs on hand were very helpful with my temporary liquid diet. But enough about me.

Easy Freezer Smoothie Packs for New Moms

Whether you’re about to go into labor, or looking for something tasty (and easy) for those first few weeks postpartum, these freezer smoothie packs are for you! The best thing about these freezer smoothie packs is that you can make as many as you want ahead of time and then reap the rewards when life gets a little bit more challenging and extra time is scarce (i.e. mother and fatherhood).

Remember, it’s important to value taking care of yourself – body, mind, and spirit, just as much as you value caring for your little one(s). Place your oxygen mask on yourself before assisting those around you!

If you like this recipe, make sure to try my other smoothies too!

Grocery List: Easy Freezer Smoothie Packs

Whenever possible, I try to pack as many pregnancy superfoods into my recipes as possible. This particular freezer smoothie pack grocery list contains bananas, pineapple, spinach, and chia seeds which are pregnancy superfoods. Awesome!

Grocery List to Assemble 7 Freezer Smoothie Packs (1 week of smoothies!)

NOTE:  Everyone always asks what kind of cup and straw I use so that’s why they’re on the grocery list. Of course, feel free to use whatever kind of cup and straw you have on hand. Or hey, I suppose you could just drink your smoothie out of the blender. Whatever works. 😉

Yield: 7 Smoothies

Whether you’re about to go into labor, or looking for something tasty (and easy) for those first few weeks postpartum, these freezer smoothie packs are for you! The best thing about these freezer smoothie packs is that you can make as many as you want ahead of time and then reap the rewards when life gets a little bit more challenging and extra time is scarce (i.e. mother and fatherhood).

Prep Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 7 bananas
  • 1 pint of blueberries
  • 16 ounces of frozen pineapple chunks
  • 16 ounces of organic spinach
  • chia seeds
  • quart freezer ziploc bags

Instructions

Each smoothie pack should contain 1 Sliced Banana, 1 TBS Chia Seeds, 1/4 c Blueberries, 1/2 c Frozen Pineapple, 1 c Packed Fresh Spinach

  1. First, pull out 7 quart sized freezer ziploc bags. Open them up and roll down the top a couple of inches so that the bags stay open during assembly.
  2. Next, slice all seven bananas, but keep each banana separate from each other so assembly will be quick.
  3. After that, place ingredients in freezer bags placing the spinach in last so it’s on top.
  4. Finally, while closing each bag squeeze as much air as possible (this reduces freezer burn).
  5. Store each smoothie pack in the freezer until ready to make.

Notes

When first blending your freezer smoothie, before you do anything, pour one cup of water into the blender.

The spinach is on top of each bag so that you can blend it with the water first, before adding anything else.

If you do it this way, even if you have a less powerful blender than I, everything will blend well. You can do it!

You can substitute spinach with kale – both are wonderful!

Once you’ve blended the water with the greens and it’s a soup-like texture, then it’s time to add the other ingredients.

Make sure to slice the bananas. Keeping them whole is difficult for any blender.

If you have a bunch of kids you could double the contents in each bag, in hopes that you’ll get some too. (Remember, if you double the recipe you’ll need to double the amount of water in the blender.)

If you want a smoothie with less sugar, substitute the pineapple and/or banana with berries. Berries are MUCH lower in sugar than bananas and pineapple (which are HIGH in sugar).

If you want your smoothie to be a bright vibrant green leave out the blueberries. If you have picky kids, this may be necessary. (My kids were a little weirded out by this murky green smoothie I put before them, but they quickly got over it and pounded theirs.)
