Smoothies – On a Food Storage Blog?

Home / BabySteps / Baking Ingredients / Smoothies – On a Food Storage Blog?

So I have been making these delicious smoothies lately and couldn’t figure out if I could justify sharing the recipe on a food storage blog. The other day when I ran out of milk it dawned on me I could try some of my powdered milk in it instead. Well, I did it! It was delicious, so now I can officially share the recipe on a food storage blog (not to mention all the other ingredients are frozen, so they can count as food storage if you have a big freezer).

Fruit and Yogurt Smoothies

Serving Size: 2 large glasses
Prep Time: 5 minutes (if you make a bunch of baggies ahead of time)

Ingredients (if you skip the sugar, they’re actually REALLY healthy):

  • 3/4 cup of frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of frozen peaches or rasberries
  • 1 cup of powdered milk prepared
  • 5 ice cubes of fat-free strawberry yogurt (or any other kind)
  • Some sugar if you think it needs it (I try not to)

*instead of water for the liquid part of the milk, you can use juice for the flavor, and the powder to make it creamy!


  1. Pour milk into blender
  2. Add fruit, blend
  3. Add yogurt cubes, blend
  4. Add sugar, blend
  5. Eat with a spoon, or drink with a straw

Directions to prepare a bunch of smoothies for the go ahead of time:

  1. Buy a 8-10 ziploc baggies
  2. Buy bags of your favorite frozen fruits (I did 2 strawberry, 1 peach, 1 blueberry)
  3. Divide up your fruit into the baggies
  4. Divide a large container of yogurt into ice cube containers and freeze
  5. Once frozen place 5 yogurt cubes into each ziploc bag
  6. Put bags into the freezer and use them up as you wish, all you’ll need to add is the milk and sugar.
