Pro Tip for Meal Prep
We love to meal prep smoothies because, during the work week, it's so easy to dump the contents into a blender, add the coconut or tap (or filtered) water to the blender, and zap it.
Here are some tips for meal-prepping this smoothie: Chop the celery into smaller pieces and cut out a wedge of ¼ to ½ of a lemon. Put all ingredients into a freezer-safe bag and freeze (for up to 3 months). When you're ready to drink the smoothie, add the frozen contents to a high-powered blender, then pour in the coconut and tap/filtered water. Blend on high speed for 30 to 60 seconds or until creamy. Enjoy! It will be a perfectly frosty smoothie to grab and head out the door.
