You can do this with baby or full size spinach—both work equally well! (Nutrition will vary based on how much you use in any recipe.)


  • 16 ounces fully washed and dried spinach
  • zip top freezer bag (I prefer gallon size but you can do multiple quart bags if you like)


  1. Add the spinach to the freezer bag, filling as full as you like.
  2. Press and remove as much air as possible. Seal
  3. Freeze fully overnight. If desired for easy measuring, crush frozen spinach leaves lightly in the bag


Spinach can stay frozen for up to a year.

Do smaller amounts of spinach if desired.

Make sure that the leaves are fully dried to prevent ice crystals in the bag. (It’s honestly okay if there are some though!)

Use gallon or quart size freezer bags according to your preference.

Use in any soup or pasta recipe or try in: Spinach Banana Muffins, Simple Green Smoothie, 2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes (with the Spinach Option), Pesto Pasta Salad, Spinach Pesto Pizza, Baked Spinach Egg Muffins
