Survival becomes so very real when your a busy muma with a newborn, and survival is food! It’s the fuel to making your milk aka their food and it’s the most important thing you can do for your Bub- to eat! All mums are time poor, our bubs come first, then the hubby, then the pets, the washing, the cleaning and the food prepping…..and the at the end of all this comes us, mum.
So in order to get the nutrients into me quickly while doing all of the above I prep my smoothie ingredients for the week knowing I can make myself a refreshing and heathy dairy free (bubs reflux dictates) smoothie so I can keep on pushing on.
You’ll need a blender of some sorts, I use a Nutri bullet.
Snap lock freezer bags, they are the best for 101 different uses, ie keep your sudo cream in one in the nappy bag, so there’s no more “WTF! why is sudo cream everywhere?!” moments, keep a sterilised dummie in one and keep it in the car, in the pram, under the couch and In your hair- keep a dummie everywhere!
I chop each fruit up into 7 portions for 7 days worth of smoothies and store them in the freezer. Too easy!
Fruit prep for freezer:
- 1 mango
- 4 bananas
- 1/2 pineapple
- 1/2 banana diced
- 1/4 mango diced
- 2 slices of pineapple diced
- 2 tbsp NUDIE vanilla flavoured coconut yogurt (dairy free)
- 1 cup of plain coconut water
- 4 frozen strawberries or mixed berries
- Half a banana
- 1 cup Almond milk
- 2 tbsp coconut yogurt
It really is a life saver, Enjoy!
