Smoothies in a Jar

Recently I’ve been reading a lot about meal prepping, and mason jar meals and I must admit; I absolutely love the idea. Then I saw a video about mason jar smoothies and was instantly sold. However I made a few tweaks to mine as I am a firm believer that if you add milk to your smoothie it is no longer a smoothie, but a milkshake. If you are interested in how I prepped and made my smoothies please continue reading.

Ingredients(What I used, but you can use different things)

  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Kale
  • Honey
  • Orange Juice
  • Plain Yogurt

I made a few different smoothie combos to keep things interesting. With the exception of the pineapple(which I bought canned) I bought all the fruits fresh from the grocery store. I bought pint sized mason jars, which means each smoothie has approximately 2 cups of fruits,veggies.

Different Smoothie Combos:

  • Blueberry, Strawberry, Raspberry
  • Banana, Kale, Strawberry
  • Raspberry, Kale, Strawberry, Blueberry
  • Pineapple, Kiwi, Banana
  • Kale, Blueberry, Banana

I don’t measure out anything I put into my smoothies, but I was able to make an approximation to the amounts.

  1. 2 cups of fruit or veggies
  2. 2/3 cup of orange juice
  3. 4 TB of yogurt
  4. Honey to taste

With the orange juice I start with a smaller amount, however if your blender is having difficulties blending everything add more juice.
