I was able to use a lot of local produce that we picked ourselves or bought from the farmer's market.
I almost always use frozen bananas because they give the smoothies an added creaminess. I buy a lot of bananas when they are on sale. When they get brown, soft, and mushy, I throw them in a Ziplock bag and freeze them.
I also like to make green smoothies by adding veges like spinach, peas, or carrots. For the frozen smoothies, I stuck to fruit because I have a feeling they would be a dull gray color after I defrosted them. I am not sure dull gray smoothies would be attractive to my young kids!
Today, I made a triple batch of smoothies and froze them. As the school year starts, I will pull them out the night before to use for breakfast or snack!
