smoothie ingredients in mason jars

Ingredients:

For jars:

  • 2 small (202g) bananas (sliced)

  • 2 cups (325g) fresh or frozen mixed berries

  • 2 cups (330g) fresh or frozen mango

  • 3 cups (90g) baby spinach

To blend:

  • 3 cups (720g) unsweetened almond milk

  • 6 scoops (192g) “Vega Sport” performance vanilla protein powder

Instructions:

  1. Set out 6 Mason jars. In the bottom of each jar layer ⅓ cup mango, ⅓ cup mixed berries, ⅓ of a sliced banana (about ⅓ cup), and ½ cup baby spinach. Pack the ingredients lightly in the jars so it comes out easily later!

  2. Tightly close each jar and place in the freezer for up to 1 month. When ready to blend, add the contents of the jar to the blender along with ½ cup almond milk and 1 scoop of protein powder.

  3. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding extra ice if desired.

  1. You can also use regular fat-free milk and whey protein (such as “Optimum Nutrition” vanilla whey protein) in these smoothies. Macros: 31.5g carbs / 30.5g protein / 1.5g fat / 248 calories.

  2. You can also make smoothie packs using freezer safe zip-top plastic bags instead of glass jars. Divide the fruit and spinach between the bags, freeze, and blend as instructed.

  3. Optional toppings: hemp seeds, chia seeds, nut butter, granola (macros not included.)
