Summer and smoothies go hand in hand. As a special treat in the summer, the kids and I will stop at Smoothie King on our way home from the park. It's a treat for all of us. We've tried making our own smoothies at home but it seems like we are always out of at least one ingredient when we want to make them. We like the smoothie packs from the grocery store but they are really expensive. I saw for homemade "smoothie packs" on pinterest and I took the idea and ran with it.
Since my son is the biggest smoothie lover of us all, I decided to try my smoothie packet experiment on him. I asked him to tell me his favorite kind of smoothie - chocolate, strawberry, banana. (Who knew?)
I started by freezing some yogurt into drops. If you need the directions for this, check out my blog post on frozen yogurt drops.
I bought a bag of frozen strawberries so there was no prep work there. Once everything was frozen, it was time to start experimenting with quantities of each to make the perfect smoothie.
He added some skim milk, blended it up and voila - homemade smoothie.
We are set for summer now. We have ready to blend, smoothie packs in the freezer. Bring on the heat.
