Ancient Grains Breakfast Smoothie

Ancient Grains Breakfast Smoothie

By: Lee Holmes

Freezing fruit is a brilliant way to ensure you always have smoothie ingredients on hand and it’s an economical habit too. If you ever see fresh produce at a ridiculously low price, don’t wait until next week. Buy up big and store it in the freezer. Frozen fruit can also be combined with smaller amounts of liquid to make a delectable ice cream substitute.
