Preserving smoothies

It's great to start your day with a smoothie. But, not everyone has time to prepare a fresh smoothie every morning. Luckily you can make your smoothie ahead and enjoy them until 3 days after preparation. Make sure you have a clean bottle with a good seal and keep your smoothie in the fridge.
