Who Needs Smoothies When You Can Make Tropical Green Popsicles?

In the summer heat, there’s nothing like a popsicle to cool you down. But your icy treat doesn't need to come loaded with sugar and artificial colors. These creamy, fruity pops are loaded with heart-healthy fats and vitamins A, C, E, and iron—with no hint of spinach, we promise.
