Quick Smoothie Prep

I've been trying to eat better over the past few weeks.  Green smoothies have made their way into my (almost) daily menu.  Among other things, I've noticed a boost in my energy level! I'm not dragging during the days!
Here's how I'm prepping my smoothies. 
When I come home from the store with some spinach, I get out my ingredients, measure them out into freezer bags and pop them in the freezer.  I just move one to the fridge when I get ready for bed and by morning the fruit has thawed just enough to blend well. All I have to do is add my water and pull out my favorite kitchen tool, my immersion blender. 
In the picture I have a mix of strawberries, blueberries, and cranberries. This is yummy, but the recipe below is my favorite.  The mixed berries add in raspberries and blackberries. Delicious!

1-2 cups spinach, packed
1/2 cup cranberries
1 1/2 cups mixed berries frozen
