There is nothing more disappointing than realizing the spinach you bought (with every intention to eat!) has gone soggy and gross at the back corner of your fridge. It can sometimes feel impossible to eat it before it turns into this disgusting, slimy mess. Thankfully, Instagrammer Armen Adamjan, also known as @creative_explained, has a solution! The solution is turning your spinach into a DIY powder before it goes bad.

How to Make Spinach Powder

Making spinach powder is relatively simple. All you have to do is lay your spinach out on a parchment paper-lined baking tray and dehydrate it in the oven. Be sure to preheat your oven to 125 degrees Fahrenheit until it is extremely dry (but before it burns!). Then take the dehydrated spinach out and blend it in a blender or coffee grinder until it forms a fine powder. You can store this powder for up to six months!

How to Use Spinach Powder

Spinach powder can be used for all sorts of meals. One of the best ways to use it is in smoothies to get the extra vitamins, minerals, and fiber of regular spinach, but without the chunks of spinach throughout the smoothie! You can also add this to sauces and many other dishes for a boost of nutrition!
