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)
- 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.
- 2 cups of fruit or veggies
- 2/3 cup of orange juice
- 4 TB of yogurt
- 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.
