These easy to make smoothie cubes are a great trick to make a quick smoothie ahead. All you have to do is add the cubes to a blender with some liquid, and serve!
- 1 cup berries, I use a mixture of blueberries and raspberries
- 1 banana
- 1 Medjool date (optional for extra sweetness)
- ¼ cup (unsalted and unroasted) cashews
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Large handful of greens, I use spinach
- a few drops vanilla extract for flavor (optional)
- 1 ½ scoops (10 gr) Vitals ”True Superfood” green powder
- a small splash of almond- , oat- or soy milk to get the blender going, not too much (!)
Place all the ingredients in a (high-speed) blender. Add the green powder last, so it will not stick to the bottom. Blend together until you have a thick soft serve /ice cream like mixture. Be careful with the plant-based milk, don’t add too much. If you don’t have a blender, you can use a food processor for this recipe.
Using a spatula or spoon, scoop out the smoothie mixture and spread it into the ice cube mold. Try to fill the cubes evenly. It helps to gently drop the mold on the kitchen counter so all bubbles and corners of the cubes will be filled.
Freeze overnight or for at least 4 hours. Until you are ready to use them.
When you are ready to make a smoothie, push the cubes out of the mold into a blender with 1 cup of water. Add more water if you like your smoothie less thick. For a creamier smoothie use a plant-based milk, instead of water. Blend until smooth, and enjoy!
This recipe should yield one big smoothie.
The cubes can be stores in the freezer for up to 1 month
