How to pack a smoothie for lunch

The night before, simply place the thermos cup in the freezer.

In the morning, when you make the smoothie, remove the thermos from the freezer and fill with your delicious smoothie.

Next pack with your kid’s lunch. The chilled thermos will do it’s job keeping your favorite smoothie creation cold until lunch time.

Don’t have any smoothie recipes to try out? Here’s a peanut butter smoothie that EVERYONE in the family will love!

    Great tip! In one morning I’ve learnt you can freeze spinach AND thermos’s (thermosi?) LOL. As much as we love the PB recipe, our schools are nut/peanut free, so that isn’t an option. I believe they even banned Wowbutter, but I need to double check that.

    Helli! I loved this idea! But I would need to prepare the smoothie at 7 am and my kid would drink it at around 3 pm. Do you think it could go bad??

      I do this all the time. the key is to freeze your container and keep it out of the sun for prolonged storage. Most containers will tell you the time they keep the drink cold

    What I do is make the smoothie the night/day before, divide it up into freeze able cups with lids and put in freezer. In the morning I take one out and put it in his lunch…. By the time lunch rolls around it’s the perfect consistency. Works great!

    I love the idea of packing the smoothie for lunch. My teenage daughter doesn’t want to eat much for lunch (or breakfast for that matter) but she loves smoothies. I will definitely try this when school starts. What brand Thermos is that? I’m always afraid they will leak.
