Simple Smoothie Mix
Thanks to a BOGO sale and some hefty coupons I decided to buy some new frozen smoothie mixes made by a yogurt company. They are expensive and normally would not have been within my budget.
What a surprise when I took the bag out of the freezer and opened it up. It contained frozen pieces of bananas, strawberries and yogurt. Period, that's it.
So, here's the plan: On a sheet pan, lined with parchment paper, place slices of banana, halved strawberries and teaspoonfuls of yogurt. Place in freezer until hard. Remove pieces from pan, place in zip lock freezer bag and store in freezer.
To make smoothie for one: Mix one cup of milk and several pieces of mix in blender. Keep adding frozen chunks until you get the consistency you like. I made a presentable soft ice cream with this method.
So easy, so simple and so frugal.
