Who Needs Smoothies When You Can Make Tropical Green Ice Pops?

July 9th, 2015

In the summer heat, there’s nothing like an ice pop 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.

Green Smoothie Popsicles

Yield: 20 mini popsicles
Active Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 4 hours

Ingredients

2 ripe mangos, peeled, flesh cut away from pit
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1 ripe banana, peeled
2 handfuls spinach
2 cups coconut water

Green popsicles

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until fully smooth.

Pour smoothie into small paper cups or popsicle molds, place in popsicle sticks, and freeze a minimum of 4 hours. To unmold popsicles, run the molds under warm water 5 seconds to loosen from molds.
