My take on green smoothies.

Okay so you know green smoothies? Those annoying things you spend forever making to feel healthy in the morning? So I am going to try to give you some insight on my take on these healthy staples.

I am the lazy.

I hated the time it took to measure stuff out and blend it, and its was just a hassle to be honest. I'd spend 15-20 minutes including cleanup and it was to much time. So here is my hack. I pre-measure EVERYTHING and I have a few go-to combos.

I keep little containers in my fridge with these three juice combinations in them in them:
- 1/2 C of Pomegranate Juice + 1/2 C Orange Juice (tropical berry juice)
- 1 C Pomegranate Juice (berry juice)
- 1/2 Orange Juice + 1/2 C Coconut Juice blend (tropical juice)
   I either use the pomwonderful coconut drink or the Bia lime and coconut drink

I also pre-measure frozen fruit into snack sized ziploc baggies. I buy the Walmart Great Value brand "mixed fruit" which has strawberries, pineapple, peaches and mango. I also like to buy an off brand berry mix (like the Great Value Triple Berry Mix which is Strawberries, Raspberries and Blueberries) and a few kiwis. I usually have some of each set of fruits in little baggies and I will cut up the kiwi and put a lot of them in several of the mixed fruit bags. Kiwi has a strong flavor that is great in these smoothies!

Then all I do is choose my combo and dump. I also usually have some sort of green powder or veggie mix too. I love the It Works Orange and Berry powders. I get the "on the go" kind because they are SUPER easy to use and already measured out for me! Yay! You can pick those up here!

My favorite combinations are:
Berry Juice + Berry Fruit Mix + Berry greens!
Tropical Juice + General Mixed Fruit (with extra kiwi) + Orange Greens!
Tropical Berry Juice + General Mixed Fruit + Orange Greens!
Tropical Juice + Berry Fruit Mix + Orange Greens

I have also had some friends freeze kale in their fruit baggies. Guys I spend like 5 minutes on these and they are GREAT!
