We love smoothies at my house. They are a perfect way to sneak in extra fruits and veggies into my children’s diet, and they look forward to the refreshing treat! With school starting back they want to continue to have their smoothies. How do you pack a smoothie in a lunchbox? I have a solution.

Make a Smoothie

Just make your smoothies the way you normally would. I used these freezer smoothie packets for ours. We love to make them ahead of time and keep them in the freezer. They are also a perfect use for produce that may be getting close to its expiration date.

Containers

The key to these lunch box smoothies is these Freezer Jam Containers. These containers are perfect for lunchboxes because they are plastic, but they seal perfectly to hold in the smoothies.

Packing for Lunchbox

Fill your containers and place them in the freezer until you are ready to pack in the lunchbox. The bonus is, not only will they be a tasty treat, but they will act as a cold pack in your child’s lunch box! Win-Win!

By the time lunch rolls around the smoothie should be thawed enough for your child to enjoy with a spoon.

Tips

You can mix these up and customize them with your family’s favorite flavors or needs.

Sometimes I have been known to sneak in some baby spinach. The kids can’t taste it, and it adds some extra nutrients.
