Take Them A Smoothie Kit
 

Every night I go to bed thinking about 2 things- my morning coffee and my morning smoothie (don't judge. These aren't the only things I think about!). I am a recent smoothie convert. Breakfast used to consist of the usual cereal or toast but a smoothie is much more satisfying. It keeps me full for hours and I love getting a few servings of fruits and vegetables in before 8am.

Did you know that smoothie kits are a perfect choice to take to someone in need? Here are a few reasons why:

  • They're easy to make
  • Easy to transport
  • Super healthy
  • Can be enjoyed with one hand (especially helpful for breastfeeding moms)
  • Can be kept in the freezer and enjoyed whenever is most helpful

Whether you're taking a meal to a tired new mom, a friend who is undergoing cancer treatments, or anyone who enjoys a healthy treat, these kits deliver nutritious whole foods you can feel good about taking.

Smoothie Kit Recipes

Add the pre-measured ingredients to a freezer-friendly quart size bag, write the amount of liquid and/or yogurt to add and you're done! Mix in a blender. Each kit makes 2 servings.
