Spinach Popsicles


I went there….

But… before we get to those delicious sounding popsicles…

I had a great lunch with Tracey & Ameena. We had lunch at Zaytinya in DC. I had such a great time! Tracey and Ameena were so nice and very easy to talk to! I love meeting bloggers 🙂

Here’s Maya & M. M didn’t feel like cooperating for the picture…



Ameena was so sweet and brought Tracey and I gift India Town in Los Angeles! We were so surprised!

Here’s the bracelet she got me…

And here’s the bracelets she got M!!


Ameena, she LOVED them!!! Thank You!!!

Now on too those spinach popsicles….

I know… you think I went to far…

But I was thinking… since we put spinach in our smoothies, why not try them in popsicles?

These popsicles involved blueberries




And a tablespoon of honey.

I threw everything in the food processor…

And there you have it… murky looking swamp water…

This actually tasted VERY VERY good 🙂 🙂 🙂


Ready for the freezer….


To help get the popsicles out, I spray a little nonstick cooking spray inside each popsicle holder before I pour it in.


I still need to wrap my head around the idea of eating a green popsicle… I do drink green smoothies, so how different can it be? Right?!?!?

Next thing ya’ know I’ll be throwing amazing grass and chia seeds in 😉 Justing kidding… maybe… 😉 😉 😉

Stay tuned for the verdict….

The question is…

Would you eat a green popsicle???

On the agenda for today:

  • Get a 6 mile run in
  • Buy gift of a first birthday party
  • Work on Weekly Bite Newsletter
  • Run a few errands
  • Come up with a dinner idea for tonight
  • Buy a new toothbrush for M… (Shiner chewed hers up… jealous much?)

Have a great Thursday 🙂

    I would eat a green popsicle! Your popsicles look so good, I really need to get a little popsicle mold and start making them myself.

    I never in a million years would have made these, but when you mention the blueberries and banana I think I just might. Love that photo of Maya and M. So cute!

    I had such a blast!

    You read my mind! I was making a new batch of pops (link below – finally!) the other day and I was thinking… I should have ground up chia seeds and put them in there !! I am always looking for ways to get those babies in our diet.

    Can I just say… It’s SO HOT! UGH!! These pops have come in handy and of course, I need MORE now.. lol. Bought some really delish looking fruit to experiment with this weekend so we shall see 😉

    I’m going to TRY to get the kids at camp to add some Amazing Grass to their smoothies this weekend. I’m a little nervous

    When I saw the title I was so nervous!!! But I have green monsters from time to time, so I would definitely eat one of these. I need a popsicle mold!!

    Love the bracelets! The popsicles sound delicious! Heck yeah…I would eat a green popsicle! I bet my hemp protein powder would be good in there!

    Sure, I’d eat a green popsicle. They sound good. 🙂

    Hi Estela! It was so great meeting you and Marin. Maya and I had a fabulous time, and as I said, your blog pictures don’t do you justice! You are truly gorgeous.

    That being said, you are also an amazing photographer, I can’t believe how much better those bracelets look on your blog than in real life!

    I look forward to meeting you and Marin again at some point, I just hope Maya is out of her force-feeding stage at that point. 🙂

    isn’t maya the cutest?! i get to have lunch w/ her and ameena next week 🙂 wish you girls could join us here in l.a.!!!

    i would totally eat a green popsicle..but i may not give one to my 3 yr old unless she was topless..stains like green + blueberry NEVER come out. I think like a mom who does laundry 🙂

    the graham crackers LOOK professional! i would make sure you have enough sugar and cinnamon in them. Most people cook w/ less sugar than commercial kitchens do and that’s the reason they arent quite right…ppl do that with raw vegan baked stuff..they refuse to add agave and it’s like, well, it will taste “healthy” but not necessarily authentic. Just musing out loud here….

    I would totally eat a green popsicle! Why not! Sounds delicious!

    I would definitely eat a green popsicle! These look great! Also…your bracelets are gorgeous! Love M’s!

    What a great idea! I’m shoving in veggies all day long…why not suck a few down?!

    I would totally eat a green popsicle! What an awesome idea, especially in the hot summer!
