Smoothies are one of the easiest and healthiest snack recipes out there. Even if you are getting late, grabbing a smoothie isn’t a tough task. They give you your nutrients and energy without compromising on the taste.
Fruit smoothies are popular among not only kids but adults as well. Some popular choices include berries and bananas. That being said, the fruits aren’t going to be in season all year round, so getting them in bulk and freezing them or buying them frozen makes a lot of sense overall.
Let’s talk about three fruits that you should definitely try to buy in bulk and freeze them for your smoothies or for anything else, really.
Berries are one of the common ingredients used to make smoothies. Everyone loves one or the other berry. It is one of the safe choices for an ingredient. It doesn’t matter which berry you like – strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry – it is bound to make you smile.
Berries are one of those fruits that are often frozen because it makes always having them at hand very convenient. You can buy them in bulk whenever they are in season and are cheaper and freeze them. You can even buy them frozen, that’s even better.
Frozen berries are cheaper and taste better. You can eat them as is, but they taste better in the form of smoothies and juices. You can even add them to your oats and porridge.
Like berries, grapes are completely fine to freeze, too. You can eat frozen grapes as a whole, or you can turn it into a smoothie. Grapes smoothie gives you a great taste and fine texture to match.
You can also add them to your drinks instead of ice cubes to cool them. They will add flavor to your drink, cool it, and you can even eat them once you are done with your drink. It won’t even make your drink go watery, so it is a win-win.
Bananas, like berries, are another one of the most popular ingredient options for smoothies and are also a safe bet. You can freeze them whole with the skin on. Defrosted banana can be used for smoothies or for adding to your oats and porridge. It can also be used to bake banana bread.
Many people get even creative and use bananas as healthy alternatives to ice cream. All you have to do is cut a banana in half so that it is easier to handle. Stick a popsicle stick in the flat end (where you cut it in half). Dip the banana in melted dark chocolate. Freeze it, and you are done. A healthy snack’s at your disposal.
Fruits are healthy and tasty, and smoothies are healthy and delicious – sounds perfect, right? Make sure that you always have your favorite ingredients to make your smoothies. Buy fruits, especially the ones I mentioned, in bulk when they are in season and are discounted. This way, you can freeze them and have them available whenever you need them.
