Spinach Powder

Spinach Powder

Spinach powder contains all the nutrition of fresh Spinach , and is one of the easiest powders to make. If you live alone, you will probably have often  ended up throwing half a bag of spinach leaves away because they go off before you can eat them. By making fresh spinach into a powder you can preserve its benefits for adding to other dishes.

USES FOR Spinach POWDER

  • Sprinkle on cheese and tomato sandwiches
  • Decorate meals for that gourmet look
  • Add to salad for additional nutrition
  • Add to smoothies
  • Sprinkle on soup
  • Make your own Green powder mix
  • Sprinkle in to sauces

MAKING THE POWDER

You will need the following equipment:

  • A coffee grinder
  • Small paintbrush
  • Plastic funnel (see my tip at the end of this post)
  • Glass storage bottle

Follow my directions for dehydrating Spinach if you have not yet prepared any dried leaves. The dehydrated spinach should be crisp to the touch. First crush in to flakes.

Add the spinach flakes to the grinder bowl.

 

Grind the dried Spinach flakes to a fine powder.

Transfer the powder to an airtight  container. Use a soft paint brush to clear out all the powder residue.

Store in a cool dark place.

Tip: Cut the top off an empty plastic water bottle, about three inches from the top. Invert this and it makes a perfect funnel for transferring dried powders in to bottles. I find it works better than a normal funnel because the opening is wider and does not clog up.
