Frozen Smoothie Packs

I’m a lover of a good smoothie, but most of the time the smoothies you buy at chains are filled with sugar and don’t contain half the nutrients they claim to. Plus, they can cost around $8 a smoothie and have on average 700+ calories. That’s half of my suggested daily calorie intake!

For Christmas, my in-laws bought me and Greg a Ninja blender and to say I was excited is a complete understatement. I’ve always wanted a Ninja! They can make just about anything including hummus, cookie dough, salsa, single serve shakes, and yummy smoothies.


I’m totally not a morning person so getting a quick breakfast in before I head to work is key. I have been making these frozen smoothie packs for a few months now and they are total lifesavers. Best part, they cost under $25 to make 8 smoothie packs. Yep, roughly $3 per smoothie and no unwanted calories and added sugars.I try and buy in bulk at Sam’s Club because it’s even cheaper. Plus, they have frozen fruits in bulk. Just make sure you don’t buy the kind with added sugars. Each smoothie (depending on fruits used) is only 400 calories!

The ingredients below is per single smoothie pack. You can switch up the fruits for whatever you like 🙂 For each freezer pack, I cut up the fruits into smaller pieces to make it easier to blend.

These smoothie packs can be tweaked with whatever fruits you like the most! Because the packs are frozen, you don’t even have to add ice. Have fun with the smoothie packs! What combinations did you make? I would LOVE to try!

Happy Healthy Eating!
