In just 15 minutes, you can have these Green Slimsicles in the freezer. Then, get ready for a 45-calorie treat, bright green for St. Patrick’s Day, spring, and beyond. The recipe was inspired by Disney-Pixar’s Monsters, Inc.. But you don’t need to be a kid or a parent to enjoy these sweet, healthful ice pops.
Bananas and pineapple deliver sweetness, and fresh green spinach provides the bright color.
