If you’re looking for a healthy Summertime alternative to bacon and eggs for breakfast, these blueberry breakfast popsicles are perfect. Easy to grab-and-go and made with superfood blueberries, Greek yogurt and a bit of honey and granola. Kick start your Summer mornings, or refresh yourself with a cooling, healthy snack.
Are they Actually Healthy?
Many of us grew up having those colorful frozen pops in the Summer months. You know, the ones made with artificial flavoring and a ton of sugar. Not too long ago those frozen pops morphed into popsicles made with fruit juice, but still contained a boat-load of sugar.
It is possible to make easy popsicles that are far more healthy, but still retain the joy of that icy cold Summertime treat. Really all you have to do is use whole ingredients like fresh berries, nut milks, yogurt, nuts (or granola) and perhaps a bit of honey.
Make them up in batches and then pull one out if you’re running late to work, or if the kids are looking for a treat on a hot summer day.
As a long-time low carb eater, I lived on blueberry protein smoothies for my first meal of the day. These are similar in nutrients to the smoothies, but it makes life even easier when you don’t need to do any dishes, clean the blender, or measure ingredients. Perfect!!!
Make them ahead and pop them into the freezer for about 4 hours and they will be there waiting for you whenever the craving strikes….grab-and-go or leisure time on the deck!
Blueberry Lime Breakfast Popsicles
- popsicle molds
- In a food processor or blender puree the blueberries and the jam (or syrup if using instead).
- Whisk or stir up the yogurt to remove any clumps. Remove bowl from processor and gently fold in the yogurt (making swirls if you like)
- Fill molds to 1/4” from top and then top off with some granola. Drizzle honey over the granola to help it stick to the bottom of the popsicle. Insert popsicle stick in the middle.
- Place in freezer for 4 hours. When ready to eat one, run warm water over the outside of the mold and gently wiggle the stick back and forth until popsicle is released. Enjoy!!!!
