Tip Tuesday #6- Frozen Spinach

Where I live, it is not so easy to find spinach. Obviously, that is horrible for us green smoothie lovers. I sometimes find frozen spinach and use that for my smoothies. The other day I went to the store to get more spinach as I was all out. I was so upset to see there was none in the freezer section! This was super depressing for me. Luckily, a few days later I went to a small fruit and vegetable store and found in the fridge section a bag of fresh spinach. Yay!
This isn’t the first time I found fresh spinach and I really enjoy using it in my smoothies, but the spinach goes bad if it isn’t used fast enough and I end up wasting most of the bag.
This time I went home, washed it, dried it, and picked off some of the stems. Then I took big handfuls and placed each handful into a plastic sandwich bag. Squeeze out the air and tie a knot to close. This gave me 12 bags at about 1 to 1.5 ounces. I then placed all the bags in one ziplock freezer bag and placed the whole thing in my freezer.

Now I have my spinach portioned out so I can grab and add to my smoothies easily. I also really enjoy the frozen spinach as it makes the smoothie even colder which I love.

Now that you have your spinach all ready to go, try my Super Green Smoothie.

  2. What a great idea! I'm good at buying spinach and having it go bad, because I don't do a green smoothie more than once a week. Thanks for sharing.
