Use these make ahead breakfast smoothie ice cube concentrates for a healthy, easy make ahead breakfast! Make ahead your smoothies for the week, and store them in ice cube trays. Each of the 6 recipes below makes enough smoothie concentrate for 8 single smoothies.
To your blender or processor, add the ingredients for the flavor smoothie you plan to make except the liquid.
Blend the mixture roughly and add half the liquid called for in the recipe. If half is enough to create a pourable mixture, then stop blending/processing and move to STEP 2.
If the mixture won't blend well without more liquid, add the remaining liquid into the container and blend again. You can even add a bit more of that same liquid if the mixture needs it to blend creamy.
Your GOAL: roughly 2 cups of mixture of a creamy, pourable texture.
Into your blender put 4-6 bricks, 1/2 to 1 cup of milk or coconut water or plant milk, and blend. As before, start with 1/2 cup of the liquid, and add the rest only if needed to create a smooth pourable texture.
REGARDING liquid choice in the final smoothie:
--coconut water will sweeten it,
--plain water will make it more bland, and
--milk will make it more creamy.
If your blender can't blend ice cubes easily, pop this mixture (with only 1/2 cupc liquid) into a glass the night before and keep in the refrigerate to blend up in the morning.
Smoothie cubes will retain nutritional value frozen for at least one month.
