My husband and I have smoothies for breakfast every morning. They’re simple to make and a great grab & go breakfast. Except lugging everything out of the pantry every morning was starting to become a pain in the rear. I knew there had to be a better way. That’s how I came up with my EPIC Smoothie Station. See how easy it is to create your own smoothie station and save precious time every morning.
Smoothies for Breakfast
If you look at my Weekly Menus you’ll notice a trend. Smoothies every morning for breakfast. Why? Because they’re easy, fast and full of vitamins and nutrients. You can add in all sorts of extras to increase the nutrient density of your shake. And that’s where smoothie making started to get annoying for me.
And my counter started to look like this every morning.
I had to lug everything out and then put it all away again. I knew there had to be a much better way.
One day it hit me. Why not use my drawer space to create a smoothie station? Yes! I was so excited. I may have told my husband several times that it was going to be EPIC!
And guess what? It has been! I love my new smoothie station. It makes the morning smoothie process so easy. No more lugging giant tubs of extras over to the counter. Now, I just scoop, scoop & blend, blend!
Before & After
Create a Smoothie Station
- First, decide where you will create your smoothies. You’ll want a spot that allows you to plug in your blender and lay out your supplies.
- Next, choose a place to store your smoothie supplies. This should be a drawer, cabinet or counter top area near where you make your smoothies. My Nutribullet is stored in a cabinet. Shakeology packets and supplements are stored in drawers under the cabinet. Bananas are in a nearby fruit basket on the counter. Everything is right at my finger tips.
- Then, choose containers to hold your smoothie supplies. So you don’t have to lug out large containers put your supplements in smaller containers. You can store the extra supplements in the pantry and refill as necessary. I used acrylic drawer organizers to hold Shakeology packets & straws in one drawer. And plastic food storage containers to hold protein powder, recover, collagen and peanut butter powder. All from Target. Be sure to put scoops in each container. I used clear mailing labels to label each container.
It’s that simple! I’ve loved making smoothies with my smoothie station. It really does save me time in the morning. Also, I’m no longer frustrated by having to schlepp everything back and forth from the pantry each morning.
Do have an epic smoothie station? I’d love to see it.
