Popeye Push-Ups

Dairy-free diets are not friendly to ice cream. Especially in Southern California when it’s hot out. Here is a creamy dairy-free icy treat that is sure to delight. I call it Popeye Push-ups because of the spinach (I might be dating myself). My kids love them.  I love that they are super healthy!

Popeye Push-ups

If you don’t have push-up molds, use tiny paper cups and insert a plastic spoon for the handle. If fresh pineapple is hard to find in your area, substitute a 20 oz can of pineapple chunks in pineapple juice and then omit the water. Recipe makes about 10 servings.


1 cup spinach, chopped

1/2 cup kale leaves, chopped (tough stems removed)

1 whole pineapple, any size, peeled and chopped


1 1/2 – 2 cups water


Combine spinach, kale, bananas, and pineapple into a blender; puree, and add water; puree a second time. Pour into push-up molds and freeze. Enjoy!
