10 zippered sandwich bags

Dice up the fruit of your choice. I usually use berries, fruit in season, and bananas. Spread it out on a cookie sheet. Let it freeze for a couple of hours. (You can also buy bags of frozen fruit and skip this step.)
Wash your spinach, spread it out on another cookie sheet, and freeze it for an hour or two. (It's a great way to get a serving of veggies, and you don't taste the spinach if you blend it thoroughly. If you don't like spinach, you can skip this step.)
Fill a couple of empty ice-cube trays with the yogurt of your choice. (I usually use unsweetened Greek yogurt for higher protein and no added sugar.) Freeze till solid, 2-6 hours.
Label each bag and date it. Once everything is frozen, you can assemble your bags. Put 1 cup fruit, a handful of spinach, 2-3 yogurt cubes, into each bag. It is that easy.
Close the bags and put them back in the freezer until you're ready to use them.
Experiment with this to see what you like. The possibilities are endless.
