I have decided to try something new, pun intended, and right now, I'm trying to find a way to decrease the amount of time that I am spending putting together my green smoothie each morning. I am open for suggestions.
I am starting with a suggestion that I read in a blog about someone that freezes their smoothies. I prepared 4 smoothies on Saturday. Two were mixed antioxidant fruit green smoothies and two were cherry green smoothies. The first thing that I figured out is that it generally takes longer for my frozen smoothies to thaw. I have found that it has been taking about 2 days for them to thaw completely. Things I noticed about the one I had this morning are that it was not as flavorful as the fresh ones. It also had clumps in it. I decided to run it through the blender again and added a couple of chocolate chips and a little more ginger. It was still not as flavorful, but it was tolerable. I will try a different way next week. I've seen different ways to speed the process on various different blogs. While I may not try them all, I'm definitely going to find something that will speed the process for me in the mornings. It may be as simple as I need to prepare it the night before.
