Smoothie Prep

I recently tried Daily Harvest and loved the concept and taste (hello cacao blends that actually taste like dessert). I've been doing smoothie prep for a while now, putting ingredients into bags and freezing them at the start of each week. I like how Daily Harvest sends the ingredients in to-go cups, so I'm following suit by freezing mine in 16-ounce mason jars to limit plastic waste. During extra busy periods I plan on ordering from DH, but for cost purposes, it makes way more sense to make my own. Plus, it's fun to come up with blends! This Sunday, try putting your favorite ingredients into five mason jars, put on the lids, and stick 'em in the freezer. I've put together a few recipes that I love below. 

Mango Mint
Detoxifying and anti-bloat. It's also my go-to for green smoothie newbies

1 cup frozen or fresh mango

1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup coconut milk
