7 Healthy Freezer Smoothie Bags

Smoothies are a fab way to get your 5-a-day, but many of us don’t venture outside of the usual frozen berry variety. The beauty of smoothies is that you can throw pretty much any fruit or vegetable into your blender and it will work.

Making smoothies at home is a great way to watch your sugar and fruit intake, which is especially important for those following a healthy lifestyle or wanting to watch what the kids eat.

For an easy life, you can buy your produce well ahead of time and freeze it in ready-made smoothie bags, so all you have to do is take them out and pour the contents into your smoothie maker. 

All you need are some large ziplock bags, which are ideal for individual portions. You can use jars or Tupperware for a greener option if you have space.

Add the fruit ingredients to the bags and freeze immediately and pour straight into your blender when you fancy a health kick. Add the liquid ingredients before you turn it on. You can even freeze the liquids or yoghurt required in ice cube trays in preparation.

An excellent money-saving tip is to buy whatever fruit is cheap or on offer from the supermarket and use it to prepare some smoothie bags that are ready when you need them.

A bunch of bananas reduced to 20p but looking a bit brown? Don’t be put off – they can be peeled, sliced and frozen without losing their taste. Mangos on offer at your local greengrocers but never used mango in your life? It will taste great in a smoothie.

Of course, you will also need a freezer and a blender – take a look at our picks of the best Blenders for 2018 here.
