we are very excited that Disney Pixar’s Cars 3 is coming to theaters this June!!! with a house of three boys, we have been watching the Cars movies since the beginning. and to celebrate, we created some yummy Cars 3 inspired Red Light Green Light Cars 3 Popsicles, made with fresh DOLE® Fruits and Vegetables. they are layered red, yellow and green just like a traffic signal! and guess what? they are very easy to make and have no added sugar!

Did you hear? the Walt Disney Company and Dole® have partnered for a multi-year healthy living initiative aimed at helping parents encourage their families to make healthier eating choices. Thursday, May 25th is National Eat More Fruits and Vegetables Day, a holiday created to remind Americans about the health, taste and convenience benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables, and to encourage a healthier diet. what better way to celebrate National Eat More Fruits and Vegetables Day AND Cars 3, than with these Cars 3 inspired fresh fruit and vegetable popsicles.

Red Light Green Light Popsicles are triple layered in the colors of a traffic signal – fresh strawberry, pineapple-orange, and avocado banana. i know what you’re thinking….avocado banana?!!!!! trust me…it’s really yummy. and all three of these combinations together make a really fun and fruity popsicle. you could also make them with just one of these flavors if you’d like. PLUS, did i mention there’s spinach inside of these popsicles. what better way to get some veggies into the kiddies tummies than in a popsicle! they won’t even know it’s in there.
