Spinach is loaded with nutrients and it tastes great, making it one of the best vegetables of all time. Read this article to find out how to enjoy the most out of several spinach juice recipes that are inexpensive, easy to make, and totally healthy and nutritious.
The best way to start benefiting and enjoying spinach is to start off with choosing the tender leaves of baby spinach. The larger the leaves of spinach, the more mature they are and tend to be either stringy or tough or both. Spinach increases its potency when placed under a direct light source instead of being stored in the usual cool, dark place.
How to Make Spinach Juice
Juicing is fairly simple for as long as you have a quality juicer. Although you can also juice spinach using a blender or your hands, a juicer is the quickest and most convenient way of juicing.
Here is a very easy, 4 step-by-step guide on how to make spinach juice:
Rinse spinach leaves to remove traces of grit, dirt, and grime. Remember that although your juicer can filter out some of these traces, it is possible that some of them may dissolve into your juice and therefore affect its flavor.
Cut off the spinach’s ends and then cut the leaves into small pieces; this makes it less difficult to feed the leaves into your juicer.
Feed the spinach leaves only a few handfuls at a time to avoid over-feeding your juicer.
Remove the extracted juice and chill it or serve it over ice.
When juicing spinach, for instance, you can always add whatever pulp is left after extracting the vegetable’s liquid. Just ensure that you have washed the spinach thoroughly prior to juicing it. Spray spinach leaves with a solution made of three cups water and one cup vinegar and then rinse it off with water.
This solution will help remove any dirt and chemical residue that may have remained on the leaves. Remove any brown spots and hard stems from the leaves. You don’t have to pat the leaves dry before feeding them into your juicer unless they have retained some of the vinegar solution.
A word on juicers: the centrifugal type juicer is extremely fast but will give you lower yield from a leafy vegetable such as spinach. Here’s a tip: make your spinach leaves denser by rolling them up like Chinese spring rolls or bread sticks; this action makes them less likely to spin around while being juiced.
The auger-style masticating juicer is best for spinach; it will literally squeeze out all the juice from the leaves. Additionally, this juicer type will push out just a small amount of pulp that is completely dry. At an RPM of between 80 and 100, this juicer extracts more of everything: trace minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and fiber. You can find out which juicers we most highly recommend by going to this page.

The Spinach Cleanse Diet Recipe
What you will need
2 Mangoes, Large Bunch of Spinach, 1/2 a Pineapple.
1. Wash mangoes and one large bunch of spinach leaves thoroughly.
2. Use the vinegar solution if your spinach is not the organic kind.
3. Peel the skin of two mangoes and cut the flesh off their seeds; set aside.
4. Chop spinach leaves enough to fill three cups.
5. Chop ½ cup of fresh pineapple into small chunks.
6. Feed the ingredients into your juicer: spinach leaves, pineapple, and mango.
7. Put your glass beneath your juicer’s spout and then turn your juicer on.
8. Collect the extracted liquid and consume immediately or chill in the refrigerator.
You may want to increase/decrease the amount of either pineapple or mango depending on your taste. Remember that the vitamin C content in both fruits can help your body’s absorption of the iron content in spinach better. You may want to add a dash of salt to counteract the natural sweetness of the mango.
