You can’t blame your alarm clock. No matter how rushed you are in the morning, lack of time is no excuse to miss breakfast. These make-ahead smoothie concoctions are always at the ready. All you need to do is prep the ingredients (hours, days or months in advance), pour them into a glass jar, freezer bag or ice cube tray and throw in the freezer. When you’re ready to run out the door, dump the frozen combo in a blender with water and a booster powder for the simplest on-the-go meal.

3 Make-Ahead Smoothie Recipes

Up too early to turn the blender on?

You can make any of these smoothies without an electric device. Simply blend ahead of time, pour into ice cube trays and freeze for a blender-free smoothie. When you’re ready to enjoy, just thaw a cup full of smoothie cubes and enjoy. If you’re out and about, you can add the frozen squares to a Mason jar or coffee tumbler, so they’ll be thawed by the time you reach your destination.

Try these flavorful combinations to get your day started on the right note.
