Ingredients

ingredients to make spinach juice

Spinach: Opting for fresh spinach leaves is a healthy option, but you can also use frozen spinach leaves to make the juice, and baby spinach leaves are also a good choice.

Cucumber: Baby cucumbers, salad cucumbers, and regularly available cucumbers are perfect choices, and they all have excellent health benefits.

Ginger and lemon: These two ingredients make the juice extra healthy, and adding them makes it a weight-loss-friendly drink.

Water: Adding water is essential to dilute the spinach and make it hydrating, and as we all know, water is vital to the human body.

Instructions

Take a blending jar and add some spinach leaves(chopped or as is), but wash them well before using.

Substitutions

Fruits: To make it sweeter, skipping cucumber and adding pineapple or mango cubes are great additions to make it consumable.

Vegetables: Parsley or cilantro can be used instead of cucumber in the juice, which helps keep the juice green and adds a healthy touch.

Variations

Other fruits: Different fruits, such as berries, increase the sweetness of the juice, and all the berries are rich in antioxidants.

Sweeteners: Adding artificial sweeteners increases the calories of the juice, but natural sweeteners, such as zero-calorie sweeteners, are good options today.

Equipment

I am not using a juicer, as making this green drink in a blender is easy. It is just a few ingredients and can be easily made in a blender without the help of expensive juicers.

Storage

Refrigerator: The fresh juice will last 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator section. It does not lose its fresh taste, but it can get oxidized and lose its color.

If you consume the juice late, stir the glass or shake the juice container well before using it.

Stirring well helps blend the liquid and solid ingredients. The liquids and solids tend to separate if the juice is rested in one place.

Freezer: If stored in the freezer, the juice can last for a couple of months and has a longer shelf life, but its nutritional value will be reduced, and it is safer to consume fresh.

Before storing in the freezer, transfer the juice to airtight containers or freezer packs and seal them well.

When ready, take it from the freezer, thaw the juice well, and consume.

Benefits

  • Green spinach juice made with cucumber is rich in Vitamins A, C, and K and is also a rich source of iron.
  • It is a low-calorie green vegetable filled with fiber, which aids digestion and prevents constipation by regularizing bowel movements.
  • Since the ingredients are rich sources of fiber, they help prevent appetite, keep you full, and reduce cravings.
  • The Vitamin A-rich green vegetable improves eye health by containing carotenoids, essential for enhancing eye-related concerns.
  • If you are looking for low-calorie ingredients, spinach and cucumber are two perfect greens that make a good combination for any healthy juice made using vegetables.
