Ingredients
Smoothie Base
Blueberry and Spinach Smoothie Pucks
  • 3cups blueberriesfresh or frozen
  • 4cups fresh spinach, tightly packedthen lightly steamed (see notes)
Instructions
For the Smoothie Base
  1. Whisk together the hot water, coconut milk powder, cashew butter, salt, sweetener, and any optional powders until well combined. You can use a blender for larger batches.
For the Blueberry Spinach Smoothie Pucks
  1. Evenly divide the steamed spinach among 24 silicone muffin cups (or use muffin pans or ice cube trays). Alternatively, put about 1 tablespoon frozen spinach in each muffin cup (adjust as necessary for ice cube trays). Keep in mind that thicker the puck the harder it will be to blend.
  2. Add about 2 tablespoons blueberries to each.
  3. Pour smoothie base over each muffin cup and freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Remove from muffin cups and store in a freezer container or zipper bag.
To Make A Smoothie
  1. Place desired amount of smoothie pucks into your blender, add water, and blend until smooth.
  2. For reference: if using silicone muffin cups, 3 smoothie pucks and half a cup of water will yield around 8 ounces. Adjust as desired.
For Other Variations
  1. Add desired powders, extracts, spices, etc. to the smoothie base.
  2. Distribute desired fruits and vegetable pieces evenly throughout your freezing method of choice (muffin cups, pans, ice cube trays, etc.) the pour smoothie base into each and freeze.
Recipe Notes

Skip the steaming fresh spinach step if desired and use frozen spinach instead. Add about 1 tablespoon to each muffin cup.

These smoothie pucks work best if you use a smaller container to freeze them, such as muffin cups. Thicker pucks will be harder to blend. If your blender has a tamper, you may need to use that to facilitate blending. Otherwise, you may need to stop the blender periodically to scrape the contents down until fully blended. Add more water as needed to get the desired consistency.
