Make Ahead Five-Ingredient Green Smoothie Prep

Make Ahead Five-Ingredient Green Smoothie Prep

Smoothie meal prepping is a great way to save time and have enough smoothies on hand for a week or even a month. There are many ways to speed up the process, yet two of the best ways we have found are Ziploc bags and mason jars. Both ways work well and speed up the process immensely. So gather some bags, mason jars or other freezer safe containers and let’s get prepping!

The ingredients of Green Power Smoothie? Pear, kale, banana, almond butter, and plain, unsweetened soy milk.

Just chop the kale, pear, and banana into bite-sized pieces first.

Put all the ingredients except the soy milk, then freeze them in single portion in an air-sealed cup, container, or bag with a tablespoon of almond butter.

If using a mason jar, start with fruits and then add leafy greens last so they are towards the top. This helps get them out easier when frozen.

    When you want to grab a green smoothie along the week?

    Just fill the cup of frozen ingredients all the way to the top with about a cup of soy milk.

        10 Most Entertaining Things To Do During A Long Journey

        10 Most Entertaining Things To Do During A Long Journey

        There are many more fun and eventful things to do to pass away time during a long flight or train journey. Apart from sleeping and continuously playing games on mobile, you can utilize this quality time in more creative ways.

        Should we take a look at all those amazing and curious ways to kill time during the long journey? Let’s go.

        1. Become the Next Big Thing in the Writing World

        Yes!! It’s time to become an Author. When I watch a romantic movie or read some fictional story, I feel like writing something of my own. If you feel the same, then there is no better time than a long journey, especially when you are traveling alone. Don’t forget that JK Rowling got the idea of Harry Potter while she was traveling on a train.

        2. Become a Philosopher

        Enough of reading and listening to various thoughts and quotations of other people. We all have experienced life and learned a lot, and it’s time to put your ideas into words.

        Or you can try to determine the meaning of life, what you have experienced and things you have learned from it. Remember, every success or failure and try to find the philosophical reason behind it. It will help your mind to calm down.

        3. Card Games? Invent a New One

        I have no issues with claiming that Card Games has always been the most preferred way to pass the time during an extended journey. But don’t stop there, you have enough time to tweak some rules, do some experiment and invent your own card game. Call it anything you want, make sure that new game is entertaining enough to attract more players.

        4. Go into the Fantasy World

        Most of the time I put myself into Hogwarts, next moment I am fighting for the wizard world. You can do that too, and it’s not that tough. Going into a fantasy world is the most exciting thing you can do while traveling alone.

        5. Day Dream

        Day Dreaming is sometimes helpful and helps your brain do some exercise. You can be at your creative best. I have found realistic solutions of toughest problems while day dreaming. You can be more open minded and understanding at this time.

        Daydream about being a singer or actor or richest person in the world. It gives you the motivation to do well and achieve your goals.

        6. Time to Plan your Dream Project

        This one is my favorite. You get enough time to work on your plans or dream projects. Travelling is the best time to brainstorm on your next product, which can be very efficient. Think about all pros and cons, praise yourself, criticize yourself and come up with best possible solutions because no one is there to judge you or your work at this moment.

        7. Movie Marathon

        Not only weekends, but a long journey is also an excellent time to start a film marathon. Create a list and watch movies online. Tune into any of the popular video streaming sites or app and watch your favorite TV Series and movies.

        8. Breakdown your Goals into Realistic Steps

        While you are traveling, you can set realistic and possible steps to achieve your aim. Spend your time in breaking down your goals and plan to achieve each small one in a given period. You can set your daily routine, work on your work-life balance and plan for a more systematic approach in day to day life. Don’t forget that walking through small steps is the key to reaching on top.

        9. Read a Book

        Reading will never go out of fashion. Always carry a book with you. It is the most amazing thing to spend some time with, especially when you are alone and have lots of free time. Fiction or non-fiction, stories of any kind will always entertain you and enlighten you with new life lessons.

        10. Eavesdrop: Its Actually Entertaining

        The most entertaining thing to do during the long flight or train journey. You get to listen to amazing and exciting stories of the ordinary public, which sometimes are more interesting than Soap operas. I, once eavesdropped on a couple’s fight and seriously the reason was hilarious.

        I got entertained like never before.

        The Bottom Line

        Have some fun, do some exciting things, don’t waste your time in sleeping and playing the same game again and again.
