Ever since the weather’s turned nice I’ve been craving morning smoothies. And the Jamba Juice on the way to my office certainly fills that need. Except at $6 a pop it’s not a habit I’ve wanted to indulge in on a daily basis.
Insert homemade pre-packaged smoothie packs. I first saw the idea on Pinterest and thought it was brilliant. My favorite Jamba Juice smoothie is the strawberry banana- definitely easy enough to replicate at home.
Every morning when I wake up I grab a bag, throw it in the blender, add a bit of juice and blend. I’ve been using cranberry juice because it’s what I have (thanks to my cranberry vodka love) but apple or grape or whatever else you have will work just as well.
Total cost for almost 2 weeks worth of smoothies: $7. Definitely an improvement from my $6 a day habit. What are your favorite simple money savers?
