Tips for Prepping Your Smoothie Bowls

Making smoothie bowls is rewarding and nutritious, not to mention fun, but it can be a
little time consuming. If you want to enjoy a smoothie bowl for breakfast without
spending an hour in the kitchen, prepping it beforehand is your best option. Here are
some tips for accomplishing that.

Use Frozen Fruit

If you want to prep your smoothie bowls ahead of time, the main thing you are going to
do is prep your fruits and vegetables to be included. One way to do this and not worry
about spoilage is to freeze all of the fruit you intend to use. Most fruits can be frozen for
a good amount of time, so even if you prep your fruit for tomorrow, and don’t make your
smoothie for a week, it should still be good. Preferably, you will separate the fruits
based on the smoothie you intend to use in them, by slicing and chopping before you
freeze them. This will make it a lot easier for you.

Create Smoothie Packs

Once you have prepped all your fruit and prepared to freeze it, you can decide if you
want to put together smoothie packs. These include freezer bags where each one is a
different smoothie recipe. This is a good option when you already know what types of
smoothie recipes you intend to make for your smoothie bowls. If you are making a
strawberry banana smoothie, a frozen banana and sliced frozen strawberries go into
one bag. That way, when the morning comes, you empty the contents into the blender,
add your other ingredients, and you’re good to go. You can even write on the bag what
other ingredients to grab.

What You Can Prep

As you know, you can easily prep the fruit and freeze it beforehand. IF you are going to
make smoothie bowls with vegetables, like spinach or kale, put them into individual
servings and either put them in the refrigerator or freezer. These do tend to taste better
when in the refrigerator, left in a crisper drawer. Another thing you can prep are the
added toppings and additional ingredients. Just put them in a bag that is left out, where
you can pour it into the smoothie after you have added the frozen fruit and any dairy you
intend to use.

Prepping your smoothie bowls saves time and energy, and really encourages you to
make them more often.
