Not especially pretty, but very good for you! Eta: I filled some popsicle molds with the 2nd serving and my 5 yr old LOVES his "green" popsicles!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and slice fruit.
  2. Blend in blender until reasonably smooth.
  3. If you find the granny smith and spinach are too tart add some maple syrup or sweetener to taste.
  4. A Golden Delicious apple can be substituted for the Granny Smith. (I prefer to use a Golden, myself).
  5. I used spinach (can be fresh or frozen) but arugula or kale would also work. The amount is approximate.

Wow! This was great! I did not even add the banana! Orange, apple, spinach and water with a tablespoon of lemon juice to brighten it all. Added 1 packet of stevia (truvia). Tasty and yummy! Thanks!@

Awesome! very tasty! I used golden delicious apples instead of the granny. (too sour) and since I had no oranges, I used 2 scoops of orange juice concentrate. very filling. Plus, you can't taste the spinach at all! I do like the flavor of cooked spinach, but not raw. I've been freezing all the ingredients in a plastic bag, then letting it thaw a bit, and then blending it up for a fast lunch! (you know how peoples schedules are this days) Thanks for posting!!

Great recipe. And convenient for me because they are ingredients I buy every single week. I only put 3 ounces of spinach in though, because 8 ounces would have been my whole bag!
