Mason Jar Smoothies For The Girl On The Go!

Smoothies are pretty much the only way I can sneak in my veggies and fruit plus it’s the only way I’m certain to not skip a meal. If it’s already prepped to go, then my schedule is including a quick and nutritious meal. Whether it’s for me or my kids I can blend whichever fruits we love paired with our favorite base. It can be an almond milk, coconut water, juice, yogurt or anything that taste delicious. In my home, we love berries and bananas.

Just slice your favorite fruits and store in Ball 16oz spiral canning jars. The unique shape makes life on the go easier to grip. The Spiral Jar comes in two sizes: 16oz and 28oz.
