In a food processor, finely chop the kale and red onion. Cut avocados in half, remove the center seed and scoop out the avocado into a bowl. Smash the avocado until more of a creamy, guacamole tester. Add the chopped kale, onion and remaining ingredients. Stir until all is well blended. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and voila! Enjoy!

2 c fresh organic spinach 

1 banana 

1 c fresh chopped pineapple

Blend all ingredients together, add a little more water if too thick, blend until smooth! Pour into popsicle molds, place wooded sticks in the middle of the pop, freeze for 2-3 hours.
