13 Ingredients for A Well Stocked Smoothie Pantry

If you're trying to get in the habit of having morning smoothies, the best thing you can do to help yourself is to have a well stocked smoothie pantry. Take your Smoothie Project PDF to the grocery or farmer's market with you as a helpful shopping list to start stocking your kitchen. Here are some of my favorites and tips for storing them. 


Keep all your favorite frozen fruits on hand in your freezer, then once a week hit up the farmer's market for in-season fresh varieties. Stasher Bags are great for storing items air tight!

Frozen Bananas -we get a big bunch (or two) of bananas, chop them up, and freeze them. Here's a video to help! 

Frozen Berries, Pineapple and Mango are always at the grocery and are cost effective. 


Just like fruit, keep some favorites frozen so they're always on hand, and then get your fresh varieties each week at the Farmer's Market. 

Frozen Riced Cauliflower -really popular right now, so all the markets are keeping it in stock. It adds a nice creaminess to your smoothie, but doesn't affect the flavor. 

Spinach and Kale -I prefer to buy these fresh at the market, but you can stash some in baggies in your freezer. 


Milk -cow's, nut, hemp, etc 


Yogurt -I like to keep plain greek yogurt on hand because it is higher in protein and lower in sugar. Flavored varieties are great, too, if that's what gets your family on the smoothie train. 


Nuts and Seeds -store these in the freezer to maximize freshness.

Nut Butters -peanut, almond, cashew, sunflower, or your favorite blend 

Protein Powder -you can find endless flavors and ingredients. Plant based, milk based, specifically for kids, fortified with other nutrients. Visit your local health food store and pick up some sample packets to help find your favorite. Vital Proteins is a favorite in this house. 


Bee Pollen -high in protein, vitamins, and help builds immunity to local allergens. 

Cocoa Powder -loaded with antioxidants, and it's chocolate! What's not to love?

Sweeteners -honey, maple syrup, and dates can all be stored long term at room temperature. 

This post is all about the pantry, but I would be remiss if I didn't also mention my favorite high powered blender and glass straws. What are your favorite smoothie ingredients to keep on hand? I would love to know in the comments below!

    Thank you for this post! I'm about to order some bee pollen and glass straws. My kids (ages 4,3,2, and 9 months) are really into smoothies right now. They're also more willing to try new ingredients when they get to throw things in the blender and the result is something yummy. Thanks for the ideas and inspiration!
