how to freeze spinach

How to Freeze Spinach (or any other leafy green)

  • Author: Simple Green Smoothies
  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 12 ice cubes 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


Skip the half rotten bags of leafy greens! Freezing greens is an easy (and economical) way to save every last stem of spinach.


  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 cups of water


  1. Blend spinach and water until no leafy chunks remain.
  2. Pour contents into an ice cube tray, then freeze. Make sure tray is level in freezer.
  3. Store the frozen cubes in a freezer-safe container until ready to use in a smoothie.


*This process can be applied to any leafy green, so go crazy! 

*I store my cubes in gallon sized silicone freezer bags to avoid any freezer burn.
