This is not a sponsored post and I was not paid to write nice things about ReSqueeze. I was sent their product and chose to write about it. All opinions expressed here are my own.ย 

Well happy Friday, friends. Hallelujah and amen. We made it to the weekend! TGI-friggin-F.

It’s been a long week, yo……glad its over ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m kinda-sorta already in weekend mode because it’s taken me over 2 hours to buckle down and right this darn post. I’m in pajamas and my velvety red {ugly as sin but super comfy so I don’t care} robe sitting at my desk watching clips of Jimmy Fallon talking about celebrities. Damn you hulu!! You get me every time…..

In my defense, I was trying to get ideas on what to write in my post. Except Drew Carrey getting kicked off dancing with the starts didn’t exactly cut it. Womp womp.

Soooo that was a good use of my time.

…………

ANYWAYS. Because I’ve been so limited with my time {good segue, Lauren!}, I made a super-fast recipe to match. My recipes seem to follow the patterns of my life. Get used to it.

Also doesn’t everyone loves a good smoothie? Say yes. I like making these because they’re healthy, easy and fast plus every single person in my family has no clue they’re drinking straight up fruit. Down the hatch it goes with no problemo.ย #winningย The beauty of these smoothies is you can add in whatever you have on hand and it’ll usually taste amazing. Berries and bananas are things we always have hanging around, so that’s the one I’m sharing with you all today.

Here’s how you make it:

Start off with a few pretty common ingredients: frozen berries, ripe banana, blueberry greek yogurt and ice. You will also need a couple splashes of milk. And a blender, but that’s sort of a given.

Sooooo, all you do is throw everything into the bowl of your blender and puree your little heart out. Add in splashes of milk as necessary to get it going and before you know it…

a smoothie is born! I like mine pretty thick and icy, but you can make it whatever consistency you’d like.

Now comes the fun part. Pour the smoothie into your glasses OR grab a few of these babies and fill ’em up.

They are just like any other pouch you’d get from the store, butย are heavy duty and made for multiple uses. Just open up the bottom and pour in some smoothie.

Be sure to mark them before you fill them! Things get sort of awkward if you wait until after…

So, once all mine were full, I stored a few in the fridge and gave two to the kiddos. Brooke was pretty thrilled. Blake was a little horrified with the cold temperature. Lol! It was pretty fun to watch him make his funny faces the whole time he was eating his smoothie ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband thought this could have used more sugar {typical}, but I thought it was just fine as is. Feel free to add in a drizzle of honey to make this as sweet as you’d like. It was a tasty an healthy afternoon snack for us a couple days ago ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s the recipe! Have a lovely weekend!

    I would put smoothies in them. I don’t have any kiddos, but I’ve always wanted to be able to take smoothies with me on the go, and this seems like a good solution!

  2. Erin | The Law Student's Wife

    Love how bright and cheery this smoothie is! I’m on a pineapple kale smoothie kick lately. Makes me fee like I can take on the world!

  3. Nikki @Seeded at the Table

    I buy those darn squeeze puree fruits all the time and it’s eating up my wallet! ๐Ÿ™‚ I meant to just get them to send to T/Th daycare with Simon, but then Judah sees them and wants them. Yeah.. double the trouble! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, I need these reusable pouches!! lol I would put different flavors of applesauce and other purees.

    I make smoothies several times a week. In the summer we make Popsicles out of the extras but this is also a great idea. I made all my sons baby food out of my garden a few years ago and something like this would have been super handy. Good to know if we have another baby.

  5. Amanda M

    i have some reusable pouches, but these are sure adorable!! i hadn’t thought of putting smoothies in them. love the idea, i’d definitely do that!

  6. Carol

    We love your pouches! We call them super special treats that they only get when they are being super good! They have no idea how super healthy everything we put in them is!

  7. Sandy R

    Knowing my son I would most likely be putting an applesauce/berry blend of some sort in. It’s funny, he’ll eat it out of the pouch but not out of a bowl. Picky picky picky lol

    I make a morning smoothie every morning before work….what a great idea to use these to share with the kiddos. Instead of yogurt I sometimes use orange juice instead.
