Smoothie Jars from Weelicious.comPin

You know I’m obsessed with smoothies first thing in the morning! They’re THE food I believe improves mood, clarity and overall health day in and day out. Even if the kids ask for pancakes, waffles, crepes or other foods for breakfast, we always have our smoothies first to make sure we’re eating the foods our bodies really need.

One question I always get, though, is how do you have time to make a different smoothie each morning? I promise it’s much easier than you think and I owe the idea all to my husband. He varies up the fruits, vegetables and milk that go into his daily smoothie, but one thing that never changes are his smoothie jars. He makes seven each Sunday with most of the ingredients on the list below so he can just grab it from the fridge, dump it in the blender and whiz it up with whatever’s fresh on the counter, in the fridge or freezer.

Sometimes we have the kids help us make them. They love learning about why each food is nutritious and using measuring spoons to plop everything in. At the end they look as gorgeous as a sand tower! You can add as many or as few as you choose depending on what’s going on in your body. The list below is truly just inspiration.

  1. I’m wanting to start trying this for my two year old, ten month old and myself. Are all of these things okay to feed to my baby?

  2. I echo Callie’s question- how many smoothies does one jar make? And- what size jar are you using?
    Thanks!

  3. Oh, this looks amazing! I can’t wait to try this recipe with my older kids. We love smoothie jars and this recipe looks delicious!

  4. My favorite smoothie is a combination of kale, spinach and pineapple. I make a full vitamix jar and then pour it into small glass jars which goes into the freezer. When I’m ready to drink it I take the lid out and place the jar in the microwave. I found that 40 seconds helps to defrost but still keep the smoothie very cold. My boss and her 3 year old son loves it!!!
