Smoothies are one of my favourite things for a quick refuel. I have them for breakfast, post-workout and for a liquid afternoon snack. Although I’m getting a taste for protein smoothies packed with oats and peanut butter, my favourites are still packed with fruit and vegetables. The one annoying thing about making smoothies though, is the time it takes to prepare each ingredient. More often than not, I freeze my fruit and, if I remember, pop it all in the blender to defrost overnight, and blend before work in the morning.
That’s where PACK’D comes in! Ready chopped and portioned, frozen smoothie kits, with additional superfood sachets, there couldn’t be an easier way to get your 5-a-day. I recently spent a week in frozen smoothie heaven, fitting each smoothie into my day. PACK’D Frozen Smoothie Kits come in three different varieties, Defence, Detox and Energy, each packed (see what I did there?) with fruit and veg ready to blend. Each kit has two bags of frozen ingredients, and two superfood sachets. Easy as that.
Here’s how I spent my week with PACK’D.
Sunday: I started my PACK’D week with a Detox smoothie, perfect for just a little hangover! Full of delicious greens including spinach, kale and pineapple, I blended with apple juice for extra sweetness. Finally I popped in the powder sachet giving final smoothie a boost with spirulina, wheatgrass, chlorella and barelygrass for extra nutrient goodness.
Monday: Having had a relaxed start to the day, I gave myself a burst of energy in the afternoon with the PACK’D Energy kit. Blended with coconut water, and undoubtedly my favourite, the berries, banana and spinach (plus added flax, maca, cacao and guarana) was a great pick-me-up before an evening ballet class.
Tuesday: Back to the green today for a post hot yoga Detox smoothie!
Wednesday: An early morning, and a chilly day, getting caught in the rain called for an immune system boost with the PACK’D Defence kit. Full of goodness, this smoothie contains papaya, mango and ginger as well as flax, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, plus baobab.
Thursday: My longest working day, and a very early morning, it’s a quick Energy smoothie for breakfast.
Friday: The final day of a long week, my last smoothie is a Defence boost to set me up for the weekend ahead.
I’m so pleased to have discovered PACK’D Frozen Smoothies. Having everything portioned out and ready to blend such a good idea, and super convenient.
