Tropical Green Smoothie Lollies
A brilliant way to get children to eat spinach, these smoothies can be enjoyed as they are, or frozen to make lollies!
Peel the banana, break into chunks and put into a jug or blender.
Wash the spinach in a sieve or colander and shake to dry. Add the spinach to the jug.
Fill a glass with frozen pineapple and tip into the blender. Almost fill the same glass with apple juice and add to the blender. Add 1 tablespoon oats.
Blend until really smooth and pour into glasses to drink, or pour into lolly moulds and freeze
