Smoothies are simple, but there’s a trick to making them even easier

Smoothies are pretty easy to make, right? But still, taking time to cut up your fruit and measure other ingredients can add up — and every second counts in the morning. Make your smoothie-making even faster by prepping and freezing some of the items, so all you have to do is pop that into a blender with a few other ingredients. You’ll thank us for those extra minutes — we promise.
