Ingredients

  • 4 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 2 large bananas, peeled and halved
  • 4 tbsp natural unsalted creamy peanut butter
  • 8 pitted dates (Deglet Noor variety) (NOTE: You can substitute with Medjool dates but they tend to be larger, so reduce the amount by roughly half if using.)
  • 8 tbsp black or white chia seeds (NOTE: Either ground or whole chia will work here.)
  • 4 cups packed baby spinach
  • 4 cups unsweetened plain almond milk (TIP: If desired, you can replace with water.)

Preparation

  1. In each of 4 large zip-top freezer bags, place 1 cup berries, 1⁄2 banana, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 2 dates, 2 tbsp chia and 1 cup spinach. Squeeze out as much air as possible and transfer to freezer for up to 3 months.
  2. To serve, empty contents of 1 bag into a blender. Add 1 cup almond milk and 1⁄4 cup water. Blend on low to break up frozen fruit, and gradually increase speed, blending until smooth, about 30 to 60 seconds at high speed. Pour into 2 glasses.
