**This post on School Lunch Ideas was brought to you by my partnership with Hamilton Beach. I was provided a Wave Action Blender to facilitate this post but the thoughts, opinions and ideas are my own.**
School is right around the corner and I understand that a lot of us enjoy smoothies as a summer treat. However, why should smoothies end just because summer is coming to a close? I think smoothies should stick around, year ’round! Smoothies can easily be packed full of good for you ingredients that will keep the kids going throughout the school day.
This year as you are starting to pack school lunches keep in mind how much your kids love smoothies and how easy they really are to make. With the help of the Wave Action Blender from Hamilton Beach I’m able to quickly make large batches of my kids favorite smoothies and freeze them in pouches. Grab a pouch from the freezer in the morning and it not only works as an ice pack for the kids lunch but as it slowly thaws it’s the perfect texture at lunch time for an end of lunch treat.
I love the fact that I don’t have to “think” about what to pack them that’s healthy! Grabbing a pouch from the freezer is seriously a way to solve this issue. I already have something healthy for my kids’ lunch and to me that’s priceless.
