We got this question from a reader, and it’s actually a question we get quite often. It goes like this:
I wonder if you can make these green smoothies the night before? There’s never enough time in the morning. Some smoothies should be consumed immediately, otherwise they may turn bitter. But I haven’t yet figured out which ingredients to avoid when preparing smoothies in advance. You should be able to do that, right?
Of course you can make smoothies in advance! We often prepare 2-3 large servings in one go, and then store some in the fridge for later. Sure, you may lose some of the nutrition, but hey, preparing the smoothie the night before is still a hundred times better than not making it at all. But, you say they may turn bitter? We’re not sure we’ve experienced that. We usually prepare the anti-inflammatory super smoothie from our first book, with kale, avocado, apple (optional), oat flakes (optional), lemon, ginger and water, and it’s just as tasty the next day.
Or, why not put all the ingredients in the blender before you go to bed, and mix in the morning? Rinse and rip the kale into pieces, chop an apple, add half a lemon, some ginger and water, and store the jar in the fridge overnight (wait until the morning to add the avocado, or it will turn brown).
Pressing the start button in the morning is just as easy as making a sandwich or scooping yogurt into a bowl, right? Good luck!
