How to Make and Use Homemade Green Powder

Updated: Jul 2, 2023

Are you looking for a way to add more greens to your diet but don't want to eat salads every day? Making green powder from dehydrated greens is a fantastic option that allows you to preserve nutrients from your favorite greens in a powder form that can be easily added to any dish. And if you prefer mild greens like lettuces, green beans, and peas, you'll love the gentle and tasty flavor they bring to your green powder mix.

In this blog post, I'll guide you through the simple process of making your own green powder from mild greens, which are perfect for those like me who find stronger-tasting greens like broccoli and brussel sprouts to be overpowering. Once your homemade green powder is ready, I'll show you five ways to use it in your daily routine, from smoothies to baked goods.

So, whether you're looking to boost the nutritional content of your meals or want to try something new, making and using your own green powder from mild greens is a great choice. Follow along with my step-by-step guide and get ready to enjoy the benefits of this nutrient-packed powder.

To begin, you'll need to gather your mild greens of choice. Lettuces, green beans, and peas are perfect examples of tasty and nutritious green powder. Wash and dry the greens thoroughly before dehydrating them.


You can use a dehydrator or an oven or air-dry them in a well-ventilated area. Dehydrate the greens at 95-100 degrees until dry. Once dehydrated and conditioned, grind your greens into a fine powder using a high-speed blender or food processor.

Store your green powder in an airtight container to preserve its nutritional content and prevent moisture from spoiling it. You can keep it in the fridge or freezer for a longer shelf life.

Now that your homemade green powder is ready, it's time to start incorporating it into your meals.

Here are five ways I use it:

  1. Smoothies - Add a tablespoon or two of green powder to your morning smoothie for a delicious and nutritious boost.

  2. Salad dressings - Mix the green powder with olive oil, lemon juice, and honey for a healthy and flavorful dressing that will excite any salad.

  3. Soups and stews - Add a teaspoon or two of green powder to your favorite soup or stew recipe for a healthy twist. It's also great to mix with ground meat. I often add as much as a 1/4 cup to meatballs and meatloaf.

  4. Baked goods - Surprise your taste buds by adding the green powder to muffin batter, pancakes, or waffles for a unique and healthy twist. You may see a green color but won't taste the difference.

  5. Scrambled eggs - Give your eggs a boost of nutrients and flavor by adding a sprinkle of green powder.

Making and using homemade green powder from mild greens like lettuce, green beans, and peas is an easy and delicious way to boost the nutritional content of your meals. Following these simple steps, you can make your own green powder and use it in various ways. So, give it a try and start enjoying the benefits of this nutrient-packed powder!
