If you have read any of the articles on Days to Fitness, you’ll already know how much I love smoothies. Smoothies have helped me lose fat, and I drink them in place of meals when I’m in a rush. They are also a great source of nutrients.
A lot of smoothie recipes call for fresh fruits and vegetables, and that can be a problem. Unless you use your fresh food purchases within a few days, they can become overripe and even go off. Not only does this leave you with no useable ingredients, it’s also a waste of money.
The solution for this problem is buying frozen fruits and vegetables. That way, you can just use what you need and store the rest – no mess, no waste, no fuss!
Make sure your blender is powerful enough to deal with frozen ingredients. Check out my blender buying guides.
