Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Popsicles

Why not turn your morning protein and fruit serving into a fun-to-eat meal? These fruit and yogurt breakfast popsicles will rock your kids world.

Who says a nutritious breakfast can’t be fun to eat? These fresh fruit and yogurt breakfast popsicles will rock your kids world. I’m serious!

what's better than a bowl of fruit and yogurt? The same breakfast staple made into delicious popsicles.

Before you judge me for giving my kids popsicles for breakfast, I suggest you check out the ingredients in the recipe. The popsicles have plain Greek yogurt and fruit. That’s it!

Take that bowl of fruit and yogurt and make it a lot more fun with this easy breakfast recipe

We are big breakfast fans at my house. My pumpkin scone recipe, cereal clusters, very blueberry muffins, Cherry Greek yogurt wafflesStarbucks cranberry orange scones, Starbucks coffee cake, honey whole wheat biscuits, better than IHOP’s blueberry pancake syrup, better than IHOP’s strawberry pancake syrup, perfect pancakes, Cinnabon pancake, bananas foster overnight oats… OK, OK. You get it. We love breakfast recipes around here.

I’ve learned, that the easiest way to get my kids to eat the healthy foods I want them to eat is through the path of less resistance. They will nearly always eat anything that comes in the form of a popsicle. Therefore, the creamy blend of fresh fruit and yogurt isn’t a bad idea at all.

That said, I’m not endorsing eating all popsicles for breakfast. The store bought brands have entirely too much sugar and nearly always artificial colors. All popsicles are not made equal. For this reason, I suggest you invest in a popsicle mold and make your own.

the popsicle mold. The vehicle to trying all sorts of fun fruity stuff!

Sure, you could give these to them as a snack, but then they would loose the awesomeness factor. When I offered my son a popsicle for breakfast the other day, he was taken back, slightly shocked, and he nearly couldn’t believe that he was allowed to eat such a treat so early in the day!

Do you know what else I love about making these? I can use my overly ripe fruit from the week that I don’t want to toss out! Of course, I can always freeze it for later, but then again… eating these popsicles for breakfast are a lot more fun.

    This is what we do with left over smoothie.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      I do that with smoothies too… but these are thicker and creamier… SO GOOD!

  3. Yum! This is one of our favorites in the summer! We call them yogurt smoothie pops. Oh I can’t wait for summer!! Hoping to see you, sweet friend!! xoxo

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      These are a bit thicker than the smoothie since the yogurt to fruit ratio is 1:1; however, the concept is the same 🙂

      1. totally! it would be hard to drink a smoothie at that ratio. 🙂 love to you!

    This looks YUMMY! We have been experimenting with popsicle recipes and hope that the greek yogurt will make them softer than just the fruit and chia seed recipes we have done so far.

    Hi Laura,
    really love your creativity on this but I am curious how the popsicles will taste without the honey or the syrup or even sweeten yogurt? Because all 3 contain lots of sugar (even though in case of honey is natural). I know kids love sugar but since we have more developed taste buds as adults, I think I try this without any of the sugar. Do you have more recipes for healthy popsicles?
    Thanks
