So I've been making the smoothies every day, but doing some weekend food prep to make it easier. Now I also drink a little bit of the leftover every day but it's a small enough amount that I can just consider it an allowed treat. plus it's a nice little boost of energy that I usually get before exercising.
Here's what I do on the weekend. I buy 7 10-oz bags of frozen berries or an equivalent amount of fresh fruit or a mixture. In most seasons, I go with frozen but in the spring and summer, the fresh berries and grapes are great additions. I try to include a mixture of berries with some sweet fruit like frozen sweet cherries, grapes, bananas. Here's all the fruit in a giant bowl:
I feeze that into a large freezer bag.
Each night when I make housemate's fresh squeezed orange juice, I also squeeze 4 oz into this measuring cup, to which I add another 4 oz of grape juice:
Now each morning, assembly goes quick. Here are all the ingredients: 2 cups of the frozen fruit, seed mixture (in the container with the blue lid), supplements at bottom right, juice, and spinach:
here's the juice, seed mixture, and supplements in the blender pitcher
Add in the spinach
I blend this up first, then add the frozen fruit and blend until smooth. Here is the final product, served with today's newspaper:
