2 small (202g) bananas (sliced)

2 cups (330g) fresh or frozen mango

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

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.
