How long can nutriblasts be stored in the fridge before losing its' nutritional value?

The longer they are exposed to heat, light, and air, the more the nutrients degrade. So obviously fresh is best. If this is not possible, I'd suggest making it and storing it properly for no more than 24 hours. A possible option could be to put your ingredients in the cup and use the stay fresh cap to store in the fridge - then when you are ready, add your liquid and Blast just before drinking. Some foods hold up better than others after pre-blasting. However, most do just fine. Another option could be to freeze them in separate portions. Do not freeze in the cup or with the blade attached.
can you freeze fresh spinach I just got a huge bag and don't want it to go to waste can I just pre package it with some other things to use in a blast for another time and freeze it that way
called foodsaver co. and asked if I could freeze fresh spinach and yes either blanch first or just put some in a baggie freeze in that baggie when frozen take out and put into a foodsaver bag and vac & steal and you have stored any extra over purchased spinach.
Terri, I buy collards fromTerri, I buy collards from Walmart (yeah, I know)and they only come in very large bags. I freeze them in gallon baggies and just pull out a handfull when I need them. It works awesomely!!! Spinach works the same, as does kale. I hardly keep any fresh greens in the fridge since I started freezing them; they wilt so fast otherwise!
Do you blanch them first r just wash and freeze.

I've always heard to blanch first, but the experiments by this group here show that you can just wash and freeze in a tightly sealed container.
Great I am going to try the wash and freeze method if it works that will really help. I have a vacuum food saver that I can seal a bunch and just bring one bunch out at a time.
Hi... As we all live in a very hectic world, I have de same sort o questions, so, am I hearing is ok to not only buy greens and put them in the freeze, but to also make blasts and put them in the freeze as well for when you want to consume? If this is true... For how long can we hold the ready-to-drink blasts in the freezer?

We answer this on our FAQ page here: http://nutribulletblog.com/faq/ 12. Can I freeze a NutriBlast and, if so, for how long will it keep and still retain its nutrients and enzymes? You can freeze a NutriBlast and thaw it the night before. Enzymes hold up pretty well in the cold freezer (just not in the heat), so freezing is an option. Depending on the ingredients in your NutriBlast, it may keep in the freezer for a few weeks if sealed in an airtight container. When freezing your NutriBlast, do not store it in the NutriBullet cup. Your NutriBlast should be transferred from the cup to an to appropriate freezer-safe container prior to freezing.
Yeah, me too -- so much good fruit & veggies right now at the farmer's markets! I got a lot of kale - dino, baby, curly -- and froze it all. Much better than waiting for it to get wilty and brown. I tried collard greens raw but didn't like the flavor but found I could tolerate it blanched and then frozen. This way I make sure to have a lot of greens around so that I can rotate then & not just stick to my favorite spinach...
