Smoothie Cubes

If this isn’t the best time-saving idea then I just don’t know what is!!!  Smoothie Cubes!!!!  How did I NOT think of this years ago!?  Anyway – now we have absolutely no excuse for not having a green drink each and every day.  No longer do we have to make them fresh – I mean really – who has time for that in the morning???  Not me for one!  Well now we can just whip up a nice big batch of my delicious Green Goddess  anytime – pour it into these cool square ice cube molds and pop in the freezer – WAA-LAA!!  DONE!!  Then each morning pop approximately 3 Smoothie Cubes in the blender with some H2O and that’s it.  You can also do the same for protein smoothies – just blend all the ingredients except the protein powder and add that just before drinking.  How’s that for a stress-free morning 🙂
