Unless you live on a deserted island, you’ve probably noticed the buzz over popsicles. I’ve rediscovered them myself lately. I loved popsicles as a kid but totally forgot about them as I grew up… time to catch up! It’s crazy, they are everywhere, in different flavors, shapes, and especially for different occasions. Instead of the boozy variety for unwinding on a sunny afternoon, today’s popsicles can be enjoyed in the morning! Wait… what?!
Yes! Are you one of those people craving an iced coffee in the morning instead of a hot cappuccino? Then you’re going to love what we have here for you. It’s easy, convenient and a perfect ready to go option when you sleep in and need a quick fix.
It’s basically a yogurt parfait turned into a popsicle. You’ll simply need to layer all ingredients in the molds before going to bed and you’ll be waking up to a cool (literally) surprise. This treat is healthy but is inspired from a breakfast classic. Blueberry pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup. Simply delicious!
Ingredients (makes 5 popsicles)
- 150 g greek yogurt
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 cup granola
- 1/2 cup blueberries
Mix the greek yogurt with two tablespoons of maple syrup. Then layer in the popsicle molds with yogurt, blueberries, granola, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze for a few hours. When you’re ready to serve, run the molds under warm water for 10 seconds, wiggle them out and enjoy!
