DIY Make-Ahead Smoothie Pucks
You love smoothies but dragging out all those ingredients every time gets old, right? If that sounds like you, I’ve got great news! Spend a few minutes now putting together these frozen, wholesome smoothie pucks. Later, your morning smoothie routine goes from time-consuming to magically easy. These DIY Make-Ahead Smoothie Pucks are perfect for busy mornings!
DIY Make-Ahead Smoothie Pucks
No more dragging out the berries, spinach, coconut milk, spices, and extracts (then realizing you don’t have ice…). Simply combine all those wholesome, nutritious ingredients and freeze in silicone muffin cups, a muffin pan, or even ice cube trays.
Then, when you’re ready to make a smoothie, pop a few into your blender jar. Add some water and blend until smooth. Easy peasy!
Yes, you certainly can make individual smoothie packs with plastic zipper bags. However, that’s a lot of plastic bags! They also take up more space in the freezer.
In contrast, smoothie pucks can be stored (once frozen) in one large container or freezer bag. Also, if you want a smaller smoothie you just grab a few smoothie pucks. Want a larger one? Grab a few more and increase the water when blending.
There are Endless Ways To Create Your Own Smoothie Pucks
Below you’ll find my simple, delicious, and nutritious smoothie puck recipe. However, feel free to change it up to suit your preferences! Simply make the smoothie base and add your preferred ingredients.
The smoothie base is a simple mixture of reconstituted Wildly Organic Coconut Milk Powder, water, Wildly Organic Coco Monkey Sweetener, Wildly Organic Cashew Butter, and a pinch of salt. This can easily be mixed with a whisk or blend if you’re doing a very large batch.
To each muffin cup, I add fresh spinach (lightly steamed to reduce oxalates, but feel free to use frozen spinach if you like) and blueberries.

What Ingredients Will You Put In Your Make-Ahead Smoothie Pucks?
- 1 1/3cups hot water
- 1cup Wildly Organic Coconut Milk Powder
- 1/4 to 1/2cup Wildly Organic Cashew Butter
- 1/4cup Wildly Organic Coco Monkey Low-Cal Sweeteneror sweetener of choice, to taste
- 2teaspoons Wildly Organic Pink Himalayan Salt
- Optional powders, extracts, and spices as desiredcollagen, protein, maca, etc.
- 3cups blueberriesfresh or frozen

Skip the steaming fresh spinach step if desired and use frozen spinach instead. Add about 1 tablespoon to each muffin cup.
These smoothie pucks work best if you use a smaller container to freeze them, such as muffin cups. Thicker pucks will be harder to blend. If your blender has a tamper, you may need to use that to facilitate blending. Otherwise, you may need to stop the blender periodically to scrape the contents down until fully blended. Add more water as needed to get the desired consistency.
