Smoothies are, by nature, a quick and easy breakfast that is both nourishing and convenient to eat on the go. However, there is a method to make things even simpler. The key to a smart smoothie habit isn’t just the ingredients you put in the blender; it’s also knowing how to get a head start on your favorite breakfast drink by pre-making smoothie kits. This is how to make smoothies a part of your everyday routine…
How to Make Smoothies an Easy Part of Your Routine
You’re probably excited about the health benefits of smoothies by this point. You’re also probably leading a busy life. It could be difficult to fit smoothie-making time into your already hectic schedule. Don’t be concerned.
The following hints and hacks will assist you in incorporating tasty and nutritious smoothies into your everyday routine so that you don’t miss out on any of the health benefits they provide.
- Make several smoothies at a time. Preparing 48 or 64 or more ounces of smoothies once and then storing in your refrigerator or freezer in individual containers makes for time-saving “grab and go” health.
- A 32-ounce smoothie makes a filling, healthy full meal replacement.
- When buying a blender, make sure the jar is easy to clean. Ensuring that your blender jar is dishwasher safe makes cleanup easy.
- Plan one day each week for shopping for produce. When you get back home, dice, slice and chop your produce into small, blender-friendly pieces and store in separate transparent containers so you can tell what vegetables and fruits are what with a quick glance.
- Make 32 ounces of smoothies for a couple of snacks during the day. At mid-morning and mid-afternoon, when you are tempted to reach for a sugary sweet for an energy boost, drink a 16-ounce smoothie instead.
- Get the family involved. When everyone in your home begins seeing the health benefits green smoothies provide, they will want to make them a part of your daily routine.
- Add some type of protein powder to your smoothies. This ensures you have plenty of protein-packed energy each day, since some vegetables and fruits don’t provide high levels of protein.
- Swap your morning coffee for a smoothie.
- Do your prep work the night before. While making dinner, why not chop, peel and dice your fruits and veggies and place them in the fridge for the next morning or the following day?
