FREEZER BREAKFAST SMOOTHIES
1lb Frozen strawberries
1lb Frozen pineapple
6oz frozen spinach
Blend everything together in a blender or food processor. You want this to be a very thick smoothie (like smoothie bowl consistency) since you will add more liquid when you blend after frozen. Add a little bit of water as you go to keep things moving and allow it to blend smoothly.
Pour into ice cube trays. Cover and freeze.
When you’re ready to enjoy your smoothie, pop out 8-10 of the cubes (depending on size you may need more or less) and add about 1 cup of water, juice or milk. Blend into a smoothie! Enjoy!
Yields about 5 servings.
MEAL PREP STEEL CUT OATS
1 2/3 cups Steel cut oats
4 c water
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
~2/3 cup currants
Bring oats, water, cinnamon and salt to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes, and then turn off the heat.
Grab 5 jars or containers and distribute the oats into the jars. Allow to sit uncovered for about an hour.
Cover and refrigerate.
When ready to eat, microwave the oats (either in the jar or in a bowl) for 2-3 minutes until cooked through. Stir in your currants and additional cinnamon or sweetener if desired. Enjoy!
Yields 5 servings.
½ cup almonds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup sunflower seeds
1-2 cups Popcorn kernels
any additional add-ins you like (dried fruit, other nuts, etc)
