1
pouch (4 oz) Green Giant™ Veggie Blend-Ins™ 100% spinach purée
1 1/4
cups water
3
eggs
1

Expert Tips

For a fun easy treat, sprinkle cupcakes with candy sprinkles immediately after frosting.

For cupcakes at a moment's notice, bake ahead of time, and freeze in airtight container for up to 2 months.
