Frozen Smoothie Cubes

We love this genius idea! Preparing smoothies has never been easier.

What is the major drawback of making smoothies in the morning? The noise! To avoid waking everyone up by turning on the blender in the early morning, I thought up a genius solution: make the smoothie ahead of time and freeze it in ice cube trays. Simply drop a few cubes in a glass before you go to bed, and your smoothie will be ready when you wake up.  
Servings
24 cubes
Prep Time
5 minutes
Cook Time
Freezing time: About 2 hours
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups (375 mL) plain or vanilla Greek yogurt, divided
  • Fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables, to taste
  • Apple juice, to taste
Directions
  1. Scoop 1 tablespoon (15 mL) Greek yogurt into each cavity of two ice trays. Freeze for about 1 hour.

  2. Meanwhile, blend together fruits and vegetables of a single colour to make a puree. If the puree is too thick, add some apple juice. The texture must be smooth but not too loose

  3. Divide the puree between the ice cube tray cavities, pouring it over the frozen yogurt. Freeze until solid.

  4. When the smoothie cubes are solid, unmold and store in airtight freezer bags, labeling each bag with the flavors used.

  5. At night, fill a glass with smoothie cubes and let it rest overnight in the refrigerator. Enjoy the next morning!
