I saw this idea on Pinterest and new I had to give it a try. I’ve seen those pre-made smoothie mixes in the store, but never considered buying one. Still, the idea of having a mix ready to go is appealing, especially so the kids could make their own, easily. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before.
The secret to making your own mixes is freezing your yogurt in ice cube trays first.
Once you’ve done that, you can just pop a few cubes in a baggie with some frozen fruit and you’re good to go. I bagged some up this morning. I happened to have a couple of bananas that were going bad yesterday so I sliced them onto a cookie sheet and froze them last night. My supplies:

All ready for the freezer:
Just add some milk and bend. Ummm….I don’t really measure. Just some fruit, yogurt and milk. (And I add a scoop of protein powder to mine.) They laways turn out fine. If you like yours sweeter you can add some honey or Splenda. And now to enjoy the fruits of my labor. YUM!
