Popsicles for breakfast? My inner child is jumping for joy! Can this be true? Made with breakfast standards (yogurt, assorted fruits, chia seeds, and honey), it’s healthy morning food posing as a sweet treat. Paired with a handful of crunchy granola, you’ve got yourself an easy breakfast on the go.

Imagine how easy it would be to convince your kids to get out of bed. Instead of their usual bowl of cereal, imagine their eyes widening as you hand them a breakfast popsicle. You’ll definitely be the coolest parent in town. Kids of all ages would enjoy this treat. These breakfast popsicles would be a hit at weekend brunches. I’m sure they’d be a welcome addition at baby showers or bridal showers, too!

I used plain Greek yogurt and sweetened it with honey. You could substitute your favorite flavored yogurt and use a variety of other sweeteners like maple syrup or agave nectar. The addition of chia seeds boosts the nutrients while also adding texture. These breakfast popsicles feature blueberries, strawberries, and kiwi. During the summer months, peaches and other stone fruits would be a great addition. Soft fruits like grapes, banana, and mango are perfect alternatives.

Regardless of the season, these breakfast popsicles would be a terrific way to start the morning! Best of all, they’re great any time of day.

    The moisture from the cut fruits allows it to stick to the sides of the popsicles molds. If that doesn’t work, I use a chopstick to hold the fruits in place while I gently pour in the liquid mixture.

    Looks delicious! But how do you keep the fruit from piling up in the bottom of the mold?
