About 8 months ago I decided to buy a Vitamix on a whim and try my hand at smoothie making.  Making smoothies has been amazing for my family and I for lots of reasons.

  1. No more breakfast – we each get a smoothie every morning
  2. No more worrying about whether the kids are getting their fruits and veggies daily
  3. Boosted immunity – we went a whole winter season with a preschooler and a 1st grader with no major colds and no flu
  4. Better Vitamin D levels
  5. Less joint pain

One thing that has made smoothies fun and easy for our family is buying everything frozen.  The only fruit/veggie ingredient that I don’t keep frozen is the bananas which we always make sure to have on the counter.  You really can’t make a decent smoothie without a banana so don’t even bother.  Sweet potato makes a decent substitute but really, its that banana that will give your smoothie a creamy texture.

I keep spinach, kale and frozen sweet potato on the left.  I haven’t found a great source of frozen sweet potatoes so I boil mine, chop them and then freeze them on a cookie sheet overnight before storing in a Ziploc.  The fruits I typically have on hand are blueberries, pineapple, strawberries, coconut and sometimes mango.

In the pantry, I keep chia seeds, cacao powder, organic raw honey, some sort of a whey protein and collagen peptides.  I like to keep my honey in a squeeze bottle which is a lot neater than dealing with a sticky spoon.

Additionally, I like to have some sort of almond milk, organic unsalted almond butter, peanut butter and I refrigerate my cod liver oil.  I buy the oil, cacao, protein and collagen at Amazon.
