I try to squeeze in my greens with every meal … I really do try! I love spinach and kale, and all the health benefits that come along with eating these magical greens. But I’ll be honest, I need some dressing or lemon vinaigrette to be able to eat them. When juicing became a hit, I immediately got excited! I can finally eat my greens without even tasting them in my smoothies! How amazing is that?! This popsicle recipe is inspired by tropical climates (as well as currently being in a vacation mood), my obsession with pineapples, and getting in my greens for the day.

Pineapple Spinach Popsicles

Makes: 10

Ingredients

  • 1 large banana
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple, cut or chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or coconut yogurt or canned coconut milk, for a slightly thicker consistency)
  • 2 handfuls spinach

Directions

  1. In a blender or food processor, puree the banana, pineapple chunks, and coconut milk until smooth.
  2. Fill the mold 1/2 way with this mix.
  3. Put the rest of the mix back in the blender and throw in the spinach. Blend until spinach is pureed.
  4. Fill your mold with the rest of this mix — this gives you the two colorful and ombre layers.
  5. Place the popsicles in freezer for about 1 hour. Then place the sticks in molds and put the popsicles back into freezer. Let it freeze overnight or for at least 5 hours.
  6. When ready to eat, run warm water over mold to easily remove the pops.
