The key to a great smoothie is freezing fruit beforehand. Buying frozen fruit is one easy way to keep your freezer stocked. Another way is to freeze any fruit you haven’t eaten, that is about to go bad. Keep a large container, or a freezer bag, in the freezer and keep adding fruits as they are about to go off. Even greens that are about to go bad can be frozen for later use. 

Do the prep work for yourself – peel bananas, cut apples, slice mangoes, cut the skin off pineapples – before they are to be frozen. This way it’s accessible to dump some of the bag into the blender on busy mornings. This is also a fun way to try new fruit combinations, as you’ll end up with different, random fruits in your freezer throughout the season. 

On the mornings you find yourself prepared, here are some yummy smoothie ideas:
