Go Green Ice Pops

Ingredients:

  • 3 bananas
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup water, milk of choice, or 100% natural pineapple juice (depending on creaminess or sweetness desired)

Directions:

Blend spinach and liquid of choice. Add pineapple and purée. Then add bananas and continue to mix until smooth. We prefer a smoothie-like consistency. Pour in popsicle molds and freeze (typically takes 1 to 3 hours).
