How to Freeze Spinach (or any other leafy green)


Leafy greens have some pretty amazing superpowers, nutritionally speaking, but they don’t stay fresh for long. I’m going to show you how to freeze spinach (or any other leafy green), and 10x it’s shelf life!

Now, for some context…

I mostly consume leafy greens in smoothies. If you’ve never had a “green smoothie,” then this is the absolute first recipe you should try (click here).

This spinach freezing hack may not be for everyone, but if you’re planning on blending your greens then I’ve got two words for you: spinach cubes.

That’s right! Stocking the freezer full of spinach cubes is a great way to get quick and creative with smoothie recipes (while keeping the greens from going bad). That’s what I call a win-win!

I don’t typically recommend adding ice to your smoothies because it dulls your blender blades and also causes the motor to work extra hard, but these cube recipes are the exception to the rule.

how to freeze spinach cubes

How to Freeze Spinach:

Following these simple steps can literally make your spinach (and other leafy greens) last 10x longer. Try to use as many fresh leafy greens as possible, but if they’re getting close to the expiration date then make these cubes:

  1. Place 2 cups of leafy greens (about two handfuls) in a blender with 1/2 liquid (preferably water, but a touch of lemon juice can help).
  2. Blend greens and liquid until it reaches a juice-like consistency.
  3. Pour contents into an ice cube tray, and freeze.
  4. Once frozen, you can remove the cubes from the tray and store them in a separate container in your freezer.

That’s all there is to it! You can follow these same steps for kale, chard, romaine, cabbage, and even herbs.

    How many cubes would you blend in your recipes?

    Hey Theresa,

    It depends on how much spinach you had to freeze. If you blended a half cup of spinach and put the entire thing in one tray, then I would put the whole tray in your blender 🙂
