This recipe will have you seeing GREEN. ;) The spinach adds the beautiful color, but all the kiddos will taste is the sweetness from the pineapple and the yummy flavor of the banana.
Put your ingredients into a blender, and process them until they’re completely smooth. Pour the mix into your molds, freeze for 3 to 4 hours, and they’re ready to devour!
Trick: If you’re having trouble getting the mold off the stick after freezing, run it under some hot water to help loosen it, and then try pulling it apart. Repeat as necessary.
