How to prepare and freeze smoothie ingredients
To make a good smoothie, you require a little of each from several ingredients. A few kiwi slices, a few berries, raw cashews, etc. etc. It makes very good sense to prepare and freeze smoothie ingredients and store them in individual portioned air-tight containers or bags.
