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. 

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 🙂

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. #winning 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, but 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 🙂

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 🙂 Here’s the recipe! Have a lovely weekend!

    Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe and revealing the existence of “ReSqueeze” reusable squeeze pouches. This product seems like a wonderful idea and provided me with a homer-esque “D’oh” moment, as in, “why didn’t I come up with that?!”

  2. Megan

    I have a four month old and would love to win and when it’s time I’ll start filling these up with yummy veggies and fruit!

  3. JoeyfromSC

    I would put smoothies in them! strawberry, apple/pear/ginger, etc. 🙂 yum!

    Thanks for the chance to win! I didn’t know this product existed lol

    I have lots of black currants in my garden, I’ve juiced, frozen and canned them, it would be great to use them in a smoothie. Actually haven’t ever done that!

  5. Anna

    I’d fill those pouches with smoothies or any number of puréed fruits and veggies for my almost 9 month old. He digs pouches.

  6. Brandi

    I never knew they made these pouches reusable! I but already filled pouches for my kids all the time. Would love a reusable one to fill myself. I would either do a smoothie or just some pureed fruit.

  7. Sabrina

    I love making homemade food for my son. This would be so great for him! I’d make some kind of desert treat (sparingly). Strawberries, blueberries in a sugar free cream.

    I’ve never thought of putting a smoothie into those pouches, but love that idea. my husband actually loves eating those flavored applesauces out of pouches so i’d make some of those and then i’d make some baby food for my new little one!
