For the spinach and yogurt cubes:
To make the spinach/kale cubes, place approximately 4 cups fresh spinach/kale leaves into a blender or food processor. Pulse and puree, adding water in small amounts until reaches a liquid consistency. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze.
To make the yogurt cubes, place about 2 cups of plain greek yogurt into a large Ziploc bag. Make into a piping bag by cutting the tip off one corner of the bag. Squeeze yogurt into ice cube trays and freeze.
For the Smoothie Packets:
To assemble each packet, use approximately 1-1 1/2 cups of desired fruit combination, 1 spinach cube, and 1 yogurt cube. Place into a sandwich size plastic bag and seal. Freeze.
When ready to eat, place the contents of smoothie packet into a blender. Add about 1/2-3/4 cup liquid (coconut water, water, almond milk, etc.) and blend until smooth. Add more liquid as needed.
Note: For Whole30/Paleo diets, do not use yogurt cubes or milk for blending.
Quantities can easily be changed or adjusted to your taste.
