When you wake up and it’s 82 degrees and 97% humidity, I’ve often wondered ‘why can’t I have a popsicle for breakfast?!?’
Welp…I can. And you can. And your kids can.
Because HOT HOT HOT…and we all want a COLD COLD COLD breakfast option!
These babies are packed with delicious-ness and will be ready and waiting for you in the freezer when we wake up.
Check out the short ‘step by step photos’ below…
You can put these together while you’re making dinner the night before, or after dinner and then let them freezer overnight. You can sweeten it with whatever you’d like (I used honey), and you can mix up the berries or other thin sliced fruits to your liking.
I’d start with a base of full fat Greek yogurt (it freezes best!) and then assemble – berries, yogurt, berries, yogurt – and give your ice pop molds a little shake to get the yogurt to fill in completely. Leave a little head space and add the granola right onto the “top” of the mold. Press lightly to make sure it ‘holds’ into the yogurt base.
Freeze and enjoy!!!
And be warned…once you allow your kids to have “popsicles for breakfast,” they are going to ask again and again. #askmehowIknow
