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.

Thanks to Dole for the recipe, which used Dole fresh spinach, bananas, and pineapple

    FOOD TRIVIA: Why do we call these ice pops and not popsicles? Because Popsicle®, plus Creamsicle®, Fudgsicle®, and Yosicle®, are registered trademarks of the Unilever Group of Companies and can only be used to identify the frozen confection products of Unilever.
