 For years I’ve been blending away all the delicious healthy ingredients for green smoothies, usually at lunch time since I leave for work before 5 am and no one wants to listen to ice crushing…including me at that time of day.  I’d love to have a delicious icy drink for my morning meal but it doesn’t work out for me time wise.  I also freeze left over smoothie in ball jars but it takes forever for them to thaw.  Sometimes they don’t soften up for hours when I take them for work and that doesn’t work either ;(

So I’ve invented a freeze, grab and go version of a smoothie:

 These little squares have all the good things in a green smoothie…and a little more.  Fruit, Nut Milk,  Flax, a little Vanilla Protein Mix…

Mix up a batch of these with your favorite smoothie flavor(s), pour it out in a lined pan, freeze and then cut into take-with squares.

    Those are so pretty and creative! But aren’t they frozen solid? Can you bite into them upon removing them from the freezer…I’m just picturing them frozen and needing to thaw them…they look awesome!

    Angela these looks positively scrumptious! It’s cold here…0C at night but you know what? I would eat these in an instant! Yummo! I love your creative recipes and can’t wait to try these although I may eat them for dessert 😉

      Thanks Fran. I had one for dessert last night and one for breakfast this morning :-P. Let them stand at room temp for about 30 minutes and they have a sorbet texture so dessert is always an option with these. I just made them to take one the road. The nuts aded to the crust keep a bit of crunch in te cookie crust so its a nice contrast to the smoothie filling. Hope you give them a try. I know you’ve been in green smoothie mode this year as well.

        I sure have Angela and it did me a world of good :). These bars are a revolution and you could make all kinds of smoothie toppings. I am going to have to mess about with some of what is available here at the moment and pears are right up there. I wonder what they would be like if you subbed almonds for the coconut? Might have to find out! 🙂

    I did a double take, when I saw the word breakfast, because they sure look like a dessert to me. Generally I’m not a breakfast person, and often avoid the nuisance meal if I can. But these bars are something I could get excited about!

      Thanks Starr and I share your breakfast woes. I work so early I rarely have an appetite first thing so I just created these as a way to bring along something healthy with my in the car. I’ve had them twice for dessert though so for most people that’s how I’d use the recipe. Kind of sneaky to add in the green smoothie ingredients though ;0
