  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon spirulina powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of one lime (optional, for added freshness)
  • Popsicle molds


1. Prepare Ingredients:

  • Ensure the bananas are ripe as they add natural sweetness to the popsicles.
  • If you haven't already, freeze the pineapple chunks. Frozen fruits help create a creamy texture.

2.  Blend:

  • In a blender, combine the ripe bananas, frozen pineapple chunks, coconut water, spirulina powder, honey or maple syrup, vanilla extract, and lime zest.
  • Blend until smooth and well combined. Taste the mixture and adjust sweetness if needed.

3.  Pour into Molds:

  • Pour the blended mixture into popsicle molds. Leave a little space at the top for the mixture to expand as it freezes.
  • If your molds have sticks with attached lids, insert them. Otherwise, freeze for about 1 hour before adding sticks to keep them upright.

4.  Freeze:

  • Place the popsicle molds in the freezer and let them freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or until completely solid.

5.  Enjoy! 

  • Once the popsicles are fully frozen, remove them from the molds by running warm water over the outside of the mold or dipping them in a bowl of warm water.
  • Enjoy your Spirulina Superfood Popsicles! They are a refreshing and nutritious treat.


  • Spirulina is a potent superfood, but its flavor can be strong. Adjust the quantity based on your taste preference.
  • You can take spirulina in a tablet form like this one from Alaya Naturals. 
  • You can also add other fruits like berries or mango for additional flavors and nutrients.

These popsicles are not only tasty but also packed with nutrients from spirulina, bananas, and pineapple. Enjoy this healthy and refreshing treat!
