Make-Ahead Recipe: Green Juice

This makes about 1 cup of Green juice. Double the recipe if you want to store another cup of juice.

What You Need:

  • 3 cups raw baby spinach leaves (or 2 cups frozen chopped spinach, or frozen chopped collard greens)
  • 1 cup water (If using raw spinach, thoroughly wash it, even if the package says “ pre-washed.”)

What You Do:

  1. Bring spinach or collards and water to boil in a medium pot.
  2. Turn heat to low and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Pour into a fine mesh strainer over a container or bowl, pressing the green “pulp” with the back of a spoon until all the liquid is released.
  4. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freeze 1/4 cup portions in sealed plastic bags or small plastic containers.
