A Fresh, Frozen Treat

(Family Features) Taking the fear out of trying unfamiliar produce is a simple way for parents to introduce children to fruits and veggies.

For example, these Green Slimesicles are a perfect way for kids to try spinach without even knowing it as it’s pureed with bananas and pineapple before freezing for a cool, refreshing treat.

Green Slimesicles

Total time: 15 minutes

Yield: 6 slimesicles

  • 2          cups (about 1/2 package) packed DOLE® Spinach
  • 1 1/2    Dole Bananas
  • 1          cup chopped Dole Pineapple
  • 1/2       cup water
  • 1/2       teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In blender, puree spinach, bananas, pineapple, water and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Pour into six ice pop molds 1/3 cup each. Freeze 4-6 hours, or until firm.
