Blender Babes has plenty of delicious smoothie recipes for your enjoyment. Our smoothies are a perfect mix of healthy ingredients that will detox your body and keep your skin from aging prematurely in our morning routines. But we understand it is not always possible to blend a fresh smoothie before starting a busy day!
Our community has often questioned what are the best methods to store a healthy smoothie or juice for later so we have formulated an easy 3 step method to be able to enjoy your morning smoothie everyday!
NOTE: Smoothies keep longer than juice (from a juice extractor) which only keeps for about 12 hours before nutrition quickly dissipates. A smoothie keeps (well) for about 24 hours while refrigerated before it starts to get… ICKY (and starts to lose nutrition). But as with any natural ingredients use your eyes and nose, if it looks dark brown or smells off don’t drink it. Better safe than sorry!
How to Save your Healthy Smoothie Recipes (& Juice) for Later in Just 3 Easy Steps!
Make a double batch of your favorite juice or smoothie recipe the day before to save you time the next morning!
One now & one for later!
This is what our community does during our FREE 7 Day Superfood Smoothie Challenge! Try it to kickstart health any time of year.
Pour the leftover smoothie or juice batch in a glass container with an airtight lid.
The ever popular mason jars are specially used to preserve food, the 24-32oz ones are our favorites!
To Freeze: You want to leave about an inch of room from the top.
To Refrigerate: You want the container to be filled completely to avoid oxidation of the nutrients becoming less nutritious in the process.
Fill it to the very top, Babes! 🙂
If you don’t have enough leftovers to fill the jar, use plastic wrap and push it down until you make contact with the top of the juice, this will help seal it so no air will touch the contents.
Seal the glass container tightly (put some muscle into it!) and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours or store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
If storing in the freezer, take it out the night before (or 8 hours before) you plan to drink it, to thaw.
Blender Babes Tip 1:
The Vitamin C in LEMON JUICE will help prevent the oxidation of your smoothie recipe so don’t be afraid to add a teaspoon or two to your batch.
