Prep these delicious smoothies for tomorrow.

Now that the weather is getting warmer and spring is in sight (*collective sigh of relief*), we're beginning to get excited about all the good stuff -- mangoes, spending weekends at the beach, swimming in the ocean without becoming a human icicle, and cold drinks.

Yes, that's right. We're quite sick of you, tea. It's time for us to dust off the bullet blenders and start the smoothie party again.

To make life easier, there are these things called freezer smoothie packs -- a simple yet genius way to prepare smoothies for the following day, week or month.

All you need is some ziploc bags, smoothie ingredients of your choice, a freezer and, you know, a blender.

---- SMOOTHIE FREEZER PACKS, they are a time saver and so convenient when you are in a rush in the morning. It takes minimum time to put them together.💚 ---- I do it when most of my fruits are super ripe, specially bananas. I bagged-them and freeze them. This way I don't let fruits go to waste, freeze and use later. ------ #smoothiepacks #freezersmoothiepacks #smoothielife #freezerismyfriend #healthyeats #healthylife #almatfit #fitnessfuel #runningfuel #fruits #greens #pinterestpic

Basically, the idea of freezer smoothie packs is to have all your dry ingredients chopped, frozen and ready to go for when you need them.

Then all you need to do is add the frozen ziploc contents to the blender, along with one cup of liquid (for example, coconut water, tap water, juice or milk), to create a quick, fuss-free smoothie.

Here's what you'll need to make five different delicious smoothies (you can then mix-and-match or make as many packs as you please).
