    Default Ready-to-go smoothies

    Some people use up leftover veggies by keeping a container in the

    freezer, and making soup from them. I don't make soup, but I've applied

    this concept to have ready-to-go smoothies. There always seems to be a

    couple bananas, or a few strawberries that don't get eaten before they

    start to go bad. I just pop them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer, and

    have a fruit mix ready to go whenever I want a smoothie. I usually add

    plain yogurt, maybe some milk and flax seed. My 2 1/2-year-old loves

    smoothies, and it's very healthy. The only frustrating part is that I

    can only find plain yogurt in large containers, which we don't use up.

    Freezing it wouldn't be helpful, because all the fruit is frozen and I

    need something with a thinner consistency to add to the mix. Any other

    ideas?

    Freeze the yogurt in a flat layer, possibly a resealable bag. It

    takes only a few seconds in the microwave to thaw this yogurt layer

    enough to use in a smoothie.

    Hey Anne! Just freeze little yogurt cubes in your ice trays. Then, pop them in

    their own

    baggie or mixed in with your frozen fruits! And hi neighbor! I am in Arkansas,

    too! It's hot!

    Ice sounds good, right now!

    I actually freeze mine flat, in a bag. I don't want to bother with

    ice cube trays in my freezer. Plus, it seems to work fine for me.
