Green Popsicles

Happy St Paddy's Day!  I have exciting news for you.

Did ya hear?  There is a Real Housewives of Vancouver show coming!  Are you as excited as I am? (Statement dripping with sarcasm)

Actually, I cannot believe they chose Vancouver as the Canadian site for this show.  I thought even the glitterati of our fair west coast city were more into Lululemon, doing yoga and Priuses than Chanel, doing lunch and Ferraris.  But what do I know...I'm not and NEVER WILL BE a real housewife.  Thank goodness!

So what does this have to do with green popsicles you ask?  Just that I turned the same shade as these treats due to the nausea I experienced when I saw the ad for this new program on television.  Ha, nice segue huh?

For this household of mostly non-alcohol drinking Jews, St. Patrick's Day is not much more than a celebration of the colour green.  That is enough to thrill the girls, and given all the healthy foods that fall into this hue, it thrills me too.  So Big A and I were both excited to make these for her playdate today.  Delicious and nutritious!

Green Popsicles
1 ripe banana
2 kiwi, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
A few handfuls organic, baby spinach

Throw everything in blender and puree until smooth.  Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until firm.  Run molds under warm water to release.  Filled 16 molds for me (depends on the size of your molds, however).
