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


In blender, puree spinach, bananas, pineapple, water and vanilla until smooth.

 Pour into six ice pop molds 1/3 cup each. Freeze 4-6 hours, or until firm. 

 Tips: For refreshing twist, add a few mint leaves before pureeing. If you don’t have ice pop molds, pour into two standard ice cube trays and insert wooden sticks after freezing about 1 hour.
