Freezer Smoothies

Hey guys!  Hope you've had a good day!  Remember when I told you about pinning healthy recipes? Well, I really love smoothies. Like, I love, love, love them.  But they always seem to be a hassle.  Getting out all the ingredients, dirtying that huge blender and making such a mess.  I dreamt of making the biggest batch of smoothies ever and having them ready within minutes of my craving, without creating all the mess.  So, I got to thinking.  We have a Food Saver and Charlie and I have been making all of Paisley's food ourselves, then storing it in the Food Saver bags.  We figured there's no reason why it shouldn't work just the same with smoothies!
I got out my fruit, milk, yogurt, and sugar and made a giant batch of smoothies.  Charlie helped me pour a cup full at a time into our Food Saver bags and seal them.  The giant batch made 7 bags and we put them right in the freezer!  The next night I took one out of the freezer that way in the morning it would be ready to go.  The next day I woke up and went straight for my smoothie....IT...WAS....PERFECT!!!  And, soooo quick!  And, the best mess!
Wanna make your own?  Here's our recipe...
A lot of fruit - We used Wal-Mart brand, bagged mixed fruit 64 oz.
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup of Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup Splenda/artificial sweetener
Blend everything and pour into bags for freezing.  It's that simple! 
 I have to admit...I am NOT a chef.  I added the ingredients slowly and sampled until I was happy with the taste.  The measurements listed above is what I ended up with.  Definitely taste test and decide what works for you!
Our giant batch made a week's worth of freezer smoothies!
This is how my smoothie looked the next morning!
Have you experimented with make ahead / freezer recipes?? I'd love to know what you've tried!  We're always looking for new ways and recipes!
Thanks for checking in! Hope you have an awesome day!
