Spinach Smoothie Tips

Can you use frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach?

Yes, you can use frozen spinach in a smoothie recipe. Frozen spinach is a cheaper option with a longer shelf life and it's great for smoothies because the texture of the frozen spinach blends nicely. If you want to avoid making the smoothie watery, thaw the frozen spinach in a strainer and allow the excess liquid to drain before adding it to the other smoothie ingredients.

What else can you add to a spinach smoothie?

It's easy to customize a spinach smoothie. Try different fruits depending on what is in season or what you have in your kitchen. Mango is great in a smoothie and provides creamy texture (like in this mango smoothie recipe). If you're looking for a dairy-free smoothie, swap out the milk and Greek yogurt for nondairy versions.

Can you make spinach smoothies in advance?

If stored in an airtight container, your smoothie can last for 1 to 2 days in the refrigerator. You can also store your smoothie in the freezer for up to 3 months. Smoothies are perfect for meal planning and prepping ahead of time to enjoy throughout the week.
