The remarkable thing about smoothies and the main reason they have become so popular is that they provide an effortless and convenient way to get lots of additional nutrition in your diet. But unfortunately, eating healthy is not always easy. Furthermore, many of us do not have time to prepare homemade meals. Additionally, it can even be quite expensive trying to eat fresh food.

But then, making smoothies is not always an easy process. Sometimes it can even seem like a lot of effort. This article aims to help you make it even more straightforward to make smoothies. The intent is that you can stick with this healthy habit and not turn back to unhealthy fizzy drinks any time shortly.

Consider Using Canned Fruits

Preparing some of the fruits and vegetables you want to put into your smoothie can take a lot of time and effort. For example, preparing green apples might involve peeling, cutting open, and removing the pits inside. This method might take longer, especially if you are in a hurry in the morning.

You can avoid this by using canned fruit. Canned fruit is already peeled and pitted and ready to be used. Soft canned fruits, such as peaches, are ready to be poured into the blender.

Here is something to keep in mind as you use canned fruits; some contain a lot of added sugar, syrup and preservatives. Therefore, consider draining off the juice they may hold to reduce the amount of sugar added to them. This way, you would still be able to keep the intended flavor of your smoothie.

The thinking above can also be applied to purees.

Pre and Pick Up

In the mornings, if you are really in a hurry, you will not want to toil over the cutting board, no matter how quick it is to create your smoothie. The solution is to prepare your smoothie ahead of time and simply grab it when you are about to leave. This solution is called prep and pick up, and you can do it by decanting your smoothies into containers and dropping them into the fridge. Easy!

Buy in Bulk and Freeze

Another challenge is that fruit can be expensive. It is not costly per unit, but because your fruit is constantly going off, you might find you need to keep replacing it, which can be wasteful.

I prefer to freeze certain fruits like blueberries, strawberries and bananas. Doing so will also give you the added bonus of creating nice and cool smoothies. Another tip is to buy in bulk and to order online. When you do this, you can set up a standing order that will enable you to receive a regular choice of ingredients at your door, and you don’t need to worry about constantly restocking your bowl of fruits.

Another option is to sun dry your ingredients instead of freezing them. When dried, your fruits will tend to taste sweeter, and they will last a bit longer. Just ensure that you blend them for a longer time, as they might be harder than ordinary fruits.
