Do you like piña coladas and gettin’ caught in the rain?
Yes?! Okay, well you’re on your own with the rain, but we’ve got you covered for piña coladas… piña colada pops that is! There is nothing better than an ice cold popsicle on a hot summer afternoon… unless of course that popsicle also happens to taste like a piña colada and its loaded with nutrients that make your body healthy and happy!
Our favorite thing about these pops (besides the fact that they are tasty and healthy), is that our kids love them too! And you know we love feeling good about the treats we’re giving our kids. So when the kids (and you!) come back for seconds, you can say yes without the guilt.
Thanks to the nutrients found in pineapple and coconut, these popsicles can hardly be categorized as a treat! Coconut is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. And pineapple is chock full of Vitamin C.
- 1 1/2 cups spinach
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 2 1/2 cups pineapple (fresh or thawed if frozen)
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut (unsweetened)
- Blend all ingredients until smooth.
- Pour into a popsicle mold or small disposable cups. Insert popsicle sticks.
- Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.
Tip: If you’re ready to take your popsicle making to the next level, try Zoku Classic Pops popsicle molds. And don’t forget to dip the molds in warm water for easier removal of pops from the mold.
