If there’s something we can do to save a few precious moments in the morning, we’ll do it! It’s taken a few years of perfecting, but we’ve discovered a couple of ways to save some precious time, sustainably, in the mornings and we wanted to share these with you (you’re welcome!).
Our Silicone Fresh Food Pouches are a lifesaver. One of our favourite ways to use them is to prepare produce for our morning smoothies. On a Sunday, we’ll grab 5 pouches and portion out our fresh ingredients into them ready for Monday through to Friday.
They are a straight swap for a zip lock bag, they’re airtight and leak proof so you can use them to store just about anything!
Instead of taking 10 minutes to find, chop, scoop and add all your ingredients to a blender in the morning, all you need to do now is reach for a pouch, tip everything in, add some water or milk and blend - it’s as simple as that! We’ll then add our smoothie to our Glass Smoothie Cups (which fit perfectly in the car holder) and off we go.
Do you ever find yourself with leftover ingredients that are just about to go off and want to prevent them from ending up in the compost or landfill? Who are we kidding, of course you do! This is another game changing hack to get maximum flavour into your smoothies, with minimum time.
We’ve recently become best friends with our ice cube trays - they’re amazing for prolonging fresh produce. We’ll mix together leftover ingredients like ginger, lime and mint with a splash of water and freeze it in trays ready to be added to a smoothie. This preserves the ingredients and gives a big burst of flavour to a morning smoothie!
Here’s one of our favourite smoothie recipes that we’ve been adding these frozen cubes to:
Green Immune Boosting Smoothie Recipe
- 1 Banana
- Handful of Spinach
- Half an apple
- 1 frozen ice cube of ginger, lime and mint
Add all ingredients to a blender with your chosen amount of coconut water - depending on what consistency you like! Blend until smooth. Add to your Glass Smoothie Cup and enjoy on the go!
