This is what my spinach looked like this morning when I opened my bowl to make Maddie's smoothie. Just starting to wilt and not going to last another day in the fridge. I really hate to waste food. Especially something as expensive as fresh baby spinach. Instead of throwing it away this is what I did.
I made my smoothie like I usually do and then poured it into ice cube trays and placed in the freezer until they are completely frozen. When they are frozen I take them out and put them in labeled freezer bags. When I want that particular smoothie I will put the ice cubes in the Vitamix with a little bit of skim milk and blend until it is the consistency I want. It will save me time and money to do it this way.
Next time you have fruits and veggies that need to be used. Just make a few smoothies and freeze them in ice cube trays for another time. Be creative with your ingredients. It's so much fun!
