Breakfast Popsicles

Breakfast Popsicles

I’m a breakfast eater. It is definitely one meal I do not skip.  For a lot of people, though, this is often a meal that is skipped for various reasons; lack of appetite, lack of time, convenience. My go-to breakfast is usually something light, lots of protein, and some fruit, but a breakfast popsicle is a new one for me!

A Breakfast Popsicle sounds a little dessert- like, but this version is more like frozen yogurt meets breakfast. It has the feeling of breakfast with ingredients like yogurt, granola and fruit, but instead of in a bowl, they are all combined and frozen into a convenient fun popsicle mold.

What you will need:

  • Various chopped fruits: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, and mango.
  • Low Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Vanilla Flax Granola Cereal
  • Vanilla Beans (optional)
  • Popsicle mold & sticks

After cleaning, chop the larger fruit into small pieces, small berries can be used whole and remember to remove skin that is not edible.

Add desired fruit portions to each popsicle mold, leaving room from the Greek yogurt.

Remove vanilla bean seeds by scrapping one side of the inside of the stalk. Add vanilla beans to the yogurt and mix thoroughly. (This step is optional)

Spoon yogurt into each popsicle mold. Use the spoon to push yogurt all the way to the bottom of each mold. Leave a small space at the top for the granola.

Once each mold is almost full, add a few spoonfuls of granola to the top, press down on the granola to make sure it is sticking to the yogurt.

Place the lid onto the mold and add all the popsicle sticks making sure each stick is standing straight. Leave about an inch to an inch and a half of each stick exposed for holding.
