Alison Murray Giveaway, Recipes, Resources, Wholefood Blender Party 14 Comments

Pwhoar, it’s 8am on Sunday as I type this and it’s already HOT, HOT, HOT. 32C to be exact. Today is also the day I’d earmarked to tidy and pack up my vegetable garden in preparation for moving house. Don’t think that’s happening today ;)

What IS happening today is another installment of the Weekend Wholefood Blender Party (whoop, whoop!) where we share our favourite wholefood drink recipes.  It’s like a Tupperware party for healthy foodies except the only thing we’re trying to sell you is the desire to make the most nutritious and amazing drinks on the planet!

Feel free to post your real drink recipes, share wellness advice, find new blogs and meet new people. I’ll be posting a recipe weekly as well, pinning all the linked posts to the Blender Party Pinterest board and selecting 3 entries to highlight from the previous week’s post. The February giveaway is still running, please feel free to enter before you leave – check the updated guidelines as Pinterest has changed their policies in the last few days.

Ally’s Party Favour: Make Your Own Green Smoothie Cubes

We currently have a fairy small fridge, and I often need to prioritise what fruit and veg I can store in it. Making green smoothie cubes is a great way to clear up some room in the fridge, as I often buy beets with leaves, kale and spinach in the same week for different recipes.

While I used to use my juicer to make these cubes, I found they freeze a lot easier if you blend your greens with a little water. Using these smoothie cubes is as simple as throwing a handful in with your daily smoothie ingredients and blitzing it all up! Tada, instant green smoothie :D

Make Your Own Green Smoothie Cubes
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 bunch of greens (kale, spinach, beet greens, silverbeet etc)
  • 1 cup water
Instructions
  1. Roughly cut up your greens, discarding any stems and wash under running water. Add to bowl of your blender until loosely packed to the top rim. Add 1 cup of water. If you can only fill half way up blender, use ½ cup water and etc.
  2. Blend on high until smooth, then pour into 2 ice cube trays. Freeze for several hours or until overnight and 'crack' icecubes out of tray into storage container. Keep frozen until needed.
  3. Add a handful of Green Smoothie Cubes to your favourite smoothie recipes instead of normal ice cubes.

    32C and moving house! Yikes, that sounds a teeny bit stressful!
    I’m utterly in love with Wholehearted Eats’s raw milkshake ideas and this week am sharing another creamy concoction- my Raspberry Almond Smoothie recipe.

      Everything is a bit stressful at the moment Emma, but I just keep soldiering through :D I’m sure Wholehearted Eats would be thrilled to hear how much you love the raw milkshake and thanks for sharing your Raspberry Almond Smoothie, it’s looks like creamy, dreamy goodness!

      It’s true about frozen stuff being fabulous now Liz; this heat is killing me! We’re not moving far, still in Melbourne but moving closer to my bf’s work. Still looking for a place, but I just need to get my garden in control as there is a lot of bulky stuff to relocate!
      Loving your Citrus Iced Tea, perfect for today’s weather :D

    Love the idea of making your own green smoothie cubes.

    Good luck with moving the veggie garden, it doesn’t sound like an easy job especially not with the heat we have been having.

    I think I love the carrot cake smoothie best of all :)

      I love the carrot cake smoothie too, such an ingenious idea! Thanks for the comment Jan, moving the garden stuff is no easy feat but has to be done I’m afraid :( Luckily the weather has tamed so I might have better luck this weekend! Hope you’re well :D

    Great post! It’s just amazing to make green smoothie cubes. I buy too many vegetables each time and i am sad to throw them away for going bad. Now i can make good use of my vegetables. Thanks for your post!

      I’m the same Steve – always buying too many vegies! I hope the smoothie cubes come in handy, I know I’ve got a few trays of cubes in my freezer at the moment :D Please forgive me for the very late reply, I’ve been away from blogging for a little while.
