Lately, our grocery store has been carrying super-easy smoothie kits in the freezer section. They contain yogurt bars and frozen fruit, so you just toss the entire package in the blender, add milk, and blend. Although I love the convenience, these packages are around $4 a pop, which is pretty expensive in my opinion.
Luckily, I’ve developed a recipe that is just as easy and flexible, but is more cost-efficient. You can use whatever you have on hand. When I go for groceries, I buy a package of individual yogurt tubs and a bag of frozen fruit, and I’m set for the week!
One of the most important yet often overlooked aspects of a gluten-free diet is having your own gluten-free condiments to avoid cross-contamination. The easiest solution I’ve found for both my family and guests is to place stickers on the lids of items I use. That means we have two containers of mayonnaise, Cheese Whiz, butter, and peanut butter on the go at all times, but it makes it super easy for both us and guests. People who visit us know to stay away from anything that has a Scooby Doo sticker on it.
