I'm enjoying making date/banana smoothies lately... I make them just before I leave for work and then eat them once I'm at work... and even in that short time they are already turning brown. I'd love to have two of these each day... one later in the day.
Just wondering what you all do... keep a blender at work? Or should not worry about it turning brown?
I wouldn't recommend blending fruit up too long in advance. After the cell walls are broken down fruit looses it's vitamins and stuff over time. Maybe if you mixed some ice into your smoothies they would keep better longer.
Why didn't I ever think of putting my work smoothies in a cooler? I have been stuffing them in bags but its getting annoying. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
+2 I've been wondering how to do it also lol!! I've been using my gym bag... and the mason jars and smoothies are quite heavy!! Think I'll start to use a cooler too!
How many bananas and dates do you typically put in each smoothie?
I've been doing about 7-8 medjool dates to an equal amount of nana... and half a blender full of water... as I don't like my smoothies too thick. If the nanas are smaller I use more.
