Ingredients

  • 40 oz package of spinach
  • 6-7 Bananas
  • 4 lb. bag Frozen Pineapple chunks
  • 1 can Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
  • Optional: Pinch of fresh Parsley pinch of fresh Cilantro

Instructions

  • Grab a Huge Handful of Spinach and toss it into the bottom of a quart-sized bag.
  • Add in 1/2 ripe banana peeled, 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate and 1 cup frozen pineapple.
  • Add in your optional parsley and cilantro or any other add-ins you like. Some folks like flax or chia seeds, aloe vera or even protein powders.
  • Squeeze as much air as possible out of bags and seal. Label and freeze - I like to layer them on a cookie sheet so they stay flat as they freeze. You should be able to make 13 bags. 
  • To later make your make-ahead green smoothie just take out one of your pre-frozen bags. Then pour ingredients into the blender - I will squeeze the bags on both sides and all the ingredients slip out nicely. Add in about 1 - 2 cups of cold water and blend away. Start with less water and get it to the consistency you like your smoothie.
  • Serving size? It makes about a quart sized mason jar full. So if you drink that much it serves one. Or if you just want a nice 8 oz. glass you can get a little over 2 cups full. So this works for me and my husbands' breakfast in the morning.
