Tip Tuesday!!! Smoothie in a Bag

My family & I have been TRYING to be more healthy this Spring & Summer, so we've been breaking out the blender.... A LOT!!! I am actually a HUGE fan of fruit, so I'm all about that Smoothie Life.

Somedays people are in too much of a rush to take the time to make a smoothie, so a majority of the time they grab what's convenient: The Donut, The  Bagel, The PopTart, etc.

Something as simple as placing all (well most) of the ingredients into a bag the day before can benefit you greatly. Why only make one bag?? You can make a whole weeks worth of smoothies!!! Trust me. Your body will thank you for it

My Smoothie Recipe:
**About 1-2 cups of Coconut Water
**2 Spoonfuls of Plain Greek Yogurt
**1 Kale Leaf
**A handful (about 5-7) of Strawberries
**A few Blueberries (about 5-7)
**1 Banana
**A (BIG) spoonful of Peanut Butter (Almond Butter is a healthier option, but YOLO)
**1 & a half tablespoons of Chia Seeds

You don't want to put things such as water or milk into the bag with your other ingredients. It'll just be a mess.

Got any empty ice trays??

Pour the water, milk, or even the yogurt into the tray, then you'll have nice cubes that you can just throw into the blender or place inside of your bags.
