Six Smoothie Pack Recipes

Smoothies are like a gateway to eating healthier. They are one of the easiest ways to pack in nutritious foods into your diet. You can use a variety of ingredients to suit your personal tastes and health goals. From vegetables that you’ll barely notice, frozen fruits that provide sweetness and antioxidants, avocado for healthy fats, yogurt and even rolled oats! The options are truly endless for what you can make for healthy smoothies. This is why I love smoothie packs so much. They’re an easy way to prep ingredients for a week’s worth of delicious smoothies.

What Is A Smoothie Pack?

Smoothie packs are the ingredients you’ll need to make 1-2 servings of a smoothie all put together. If you’ve ever found yourself struggling in the morning with time or motivation to put a smoothie together, then this is a method you must try!

You can batch prep a bunch of smoothie packs, pop them in the freezer and have smoothies for the entire week or even month! It just depends on how many you want to make.

When you’re getting started with smoothie packs, I recommend making a max of 5. This will help you get the hang of it first. Make sure to label the flavor on the front of the bag, along with any extra ingredients that are needed. For example, I do not recommen adding the milk until you’re ready to blend. All of the recipes below require 1/2 cup milk (or water).

Need A Better Blender?

Having a good quality blender makes all the difference. If you don’t have one yet, check out this sale price on Vitamix blenders. You can save $100 and you get to choose from six beautiful colors.

Vitamix has been the leader in high-quality blenders for a long time. They have a 5-year full machine warranty, and if you need recipes and ideas the Vitamix also comes with two cookbooks for even more ideas!! See The Vitamix Blenders Here.

Smoothie Pack Ingredients

Smoothies are like a secret weapon to eating heathier. You can add some incredible ingredients for added nutrition and energy. For a healthier smoothie, focus on loading up with natural ingredients and minimal sugar. If you’re making smoothies for the morning, I recommend using less fruit and more vegetables to help keep your blood sugar balanced longer. There are loads of vegetables that have very little taste in a smoothie. For example, spinach, zucchini and cauliflower. You can still have fruit in a morning smoothie, but I recommend you use less. Save the fruit smoothies as a treat for mid-afternoon.

Here are some of my favorite things to add to smoothies for an energy boost:

  • GREENS – Spinach, kale, and lettuce are a great way to add greens to your smoothie. I’ve tried them all – spinach is the easiest to use and has a neutral taste. I recommend starting there. Next, try kale! Make sure to remove the stem of kale before adding it to the blender. Try lettuce last – you can definitely taste it in the smoothie, but you might end up liking it (I actually love it). You can alternate between these three greens to give my body more variety in nutrients.
  • AVOCADO – Adding ripe avocado to a smoothie will result in a creamy consistency. They’re a great source of healthy fats which provide longer lasting energy.
  • SEEDS – There are so many superfood seeds that can easily be added to smoothies. You can add hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds. They’re all high in protein and healthy fats. I tend to buy all three from Costco to use in my smoothies. I store each bag in my freezer to preserve freshness.
  • PROTEIN POWDER – I’m a big fan of Iron Vegan Sprouted Protein Powder. It contains 17 grams of plant protein from brown rice, amaranth, quinoa, millet and pumpkin seeds. Other protein powders have left me feeling bloated before, which is why I prefer a sprouted plant-based protein powder. I’m sure there are other brands available, but this is the one that I personally love and use every day.
  • NUT BUTTER – Adding 1 Tbsp of nut butter or seed butter to your smoothies will add more healthy fats. Choose a nut butter with little additives and no added sugar.
  • FROZEN FRUIT – Sliced bananas, mixed berries and tropical fruit like mango and pineapple are all delicious in a smoothie. But to avoid the dreaded sugar crash (especially in the morning), keep the fruit to 1/2 cup or less per serving.

Secrets To The Best Healthy Smoothies

  • ADD A CREAMY INGREDIENT – My favorite thing to add to a smoothie is 1/2 of an avocado. It adds the perfect creamy consistency that I can’t get enough of. I just love it.
  • FREEZE YOUR BANANAS – This trick will take your smoothie from a 7 to a 10. Luckily all of the smoothie packs below include frozen banana in them. This will make your smoothie extra cold and creamy. It’s totally delicious.
  • TRY ZUCCHINI OR CAULIFLOWER – No really! Both have no added taste in your smoothie but will provide added nutrition. My favorite morning green smoothie included 1 whole zucchini. There’s no need to cook the zucchini or cauliflower as both can be added to the blender raw. Start with 1/2 of a zucchini (chopped in half), or one cup of cauliflower florets.
  • ADD PROTEIN – Protein will provide a long-lasting energy. You can use protein powder, hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, seed butter or greek yogurt – all are great protein sources. I tend to use protein powder in my own smoothies – this is my favorite brand (I use the unflavored, but vanilla and chocolate are sweetened with stevia and taste great).
