So I came across a great idea and I had to share it because I love a healthy smoothie in the morning.... but I hate removing 13 items from my fridge every time I make one! This will save you so much time and will make sure you are always getting your favorite add ons to your morning smoothie. I have recently discovered the awesomeness that is coconut water. I don't really care for the taste on its own, but it is awesome to replace the juice you would normally add to a smoothie. Its super low in sugar and calories but packed with vitamins and minerals, especially potassium. Great for after workouts! You can obviously replace or add anything you like to these, but this combination is pretty spectacular :)

Super Smoothie Ice Cubes
1 bag spinach, washed
1 cup plain soy milk (you could also use almond or rice)
1 cup coconut water
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
2-3 tablespoon pumpkin seed protein powder (or any protein powder you have)
Place all ingredient in a blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes until absolutely smooth. Pour contents of blender into ice cube trays. This makes about 2 trays. Place trays flat in freezer until frozen, pop out of trays and place a plastic bag.
Now when you want some veggies and protein in your morning smoothie just grab 2 or three cubes and add your favorite fruit, yogurt, juice, or whatever you want!
