Fresh Pineapple Kale Pops with Turmeric Recipe

Makes 8 pops

Shopping List
1 organic pineapple
1 cup frozen mango chunks            
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon ground turmeric         
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper  
½ cup organic baby kale 

Blender, pop molds or small paper cups, wooden sticks 

1. Prep the ingredients 

  • Trim the top and end from the pineapple; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the core into quarters. Cut the flesh into enough ½-inch pieces to measure about 3½ cups.
  • Cut any large mango chunks in half.

2. Make the pop mixture
In a blender, combine the pineapple, mango, honey, coconut oil, lime juice, turmeric, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the kale and blend until just coarsely chopped, 10 to 15 seconds. 

3. Fill the pop molds
Divide the mixture evenly among pop molds or small paper cups; if using, place wooden sticks in the center. Place in the freezer until the pops are solid, at least 4 hours or up to overnight. 

Remove the pops from the molds and serve immediately. Store any remaining pops in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
