Take a look and the recipes below, gather your ingredients, and make smoothie packs for the week! Measuring out ingredients and putting them in a plastic bag to store in the freezer makes it easy to just dump it into the blender when you’re ready for a smoothie! This way you will have a smoothie pre-made and ready to go during the week. What a great idea from BuzzFeed.
