How To Cut Your Smoothie Making Time In Half

It’s no big secret, making smoothies is a chore. No matter how much automation your blender has, or how many programs presets it comes with, there is still quite a bit of work.

For example, the basic smoothie making tasks are:

  1. Wash and clean fruits and veggies
  2. Cut, if needed, to sizes that fit your blender
  3. Blend ingredients
  4. Pour from Full-Size jar into your cup
  5. Wash blender container and all of the blender accessories

In reality, there’s no real way to cut down on many of these tasks in a significant way.

But there is hope. What if I told you there was a way to cut down your smoothie making time in half?


The Trick

The trick, is to make multiple servings at once, rather than one serving at a time!

If there’s some concern about freshness or potentness of a refrigerated smoothie, there are some generally accepted practices.

  • Best: Fresh. Do single-servings every time
  • Good: Refrigerated. Make a dual-serving. Consume one smoothie immediately, and save the other smoothie in the refrigerator (up to 24 hours)

How To Store Smoothies For Later

Steps to help make a refrigerated smoothie last as long as possible:

  1. Buy an airtight glass jar (one that fits a one-serving smoothie)
  2. Fill the jar up to the lid mark. You want to ideally leave zero air at the top of the jar when its closed
