The Best Spinach Recipes That You Will Love!

Do you like spinach? Do you need some healthy spinach recipes to give you the full benefits of spinach without the melted butter and salt? Do you have a hard time eating a raw spinach salad every day? Do you need a way to get your kids to eat spinach?

Well, look no further!

Here are some recipes for spinach that will really surprise you. Have you ever heard of blending your greens in fruit smoothie recipes?

Hold on there... Don’t click the back button. I don’t want you to miss the awesome benefits of green smoothies that I and so many others have experienced through the years.

A green smoothie is really yummy! All they consist of is spinach, or some other green, blended with fruit to make a smoothie. Sometimes they are green, but most of the time my smoothies are purple due to the blueberries. I actually enjoy the brilliant bright green color of a spinach pineapple smoothie.

Spinach is one of the easiest leafy green to hind in fruit smoothies. Hence, the easiest green to start with your kids. Kale and swiss chard being the hardest.

So, I usually recommend for all beginner green smoothie junkies to start with spinach. One to two large handfuls of raw spinach is a good start. Then, work your way to four to six handfuls. You will be surprised how your taste buds will quickly grow accustomed to the flavor of the larger amounts of spinach.


Please keep in mind... These are basic spinach recipes. You can add other nutritive goodies to add even more benefits, such as chia seeds, herbal teas, green drinks, etc.

As with all greens, you should buy organic. All leafy greens easily soak up the pesticides and need to be washed very thoroughly if bought conventionally. On the other hand, you are much better off buying non-organic greens than no greens at all!

The best form of spinach for your spinach recipes is fresh. You can also use frozen spinach and save money. Just keep in mind that you will need to add more liquid or use fresh fruit in order for your blender to blend it correctly.

Now, go and try some of these recipes! You will not get the benefits of spinach unless you go and drink it yourself.
