How to make Healthy Breakfast Popsicles:

Step 1 – In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt, honey (2 1/2 tablespoons) and milk. Set aside.

Step 2 Heat 4 teaspoons honey a few seconds in the microwave to make it runnier. In another bowl, mix together granola and honey until sticky. Set aside.

Step 3Fill popsicles mold with the yogurt mixture 2/3rd full. Using a small kitchen funnel makes it super easy but if you don’t have one, a spoon works just as well.

Step 4Push the fruits into the yogurt mixture. This works best when using a chopstick, a skewer or a small spoon.

Step 5 –  Top with granola mixture, pushing it into the yogurt mixture lightly.

Step 6Add popsicle sticks, leaving 2 inches or so for a handle. Freeze for at least 6 hours to set. Before serving, defrost for about 5 minutes (or run the mold under warm water), then serve immediately.

How to unmold popsicles mess-free:

There are several ways to unmold ice pops accident-free. However, I find the best method is to fill a pan with warm (not hot) water, and briefly dip the popsicle mold in until the pops loosen. They should separate from the mold after about 20 to 30 seconds.

Remove the popsicle mold from the water and place it on your kitchen counter.  Now, gripping the handles, pull gently upward. And tadaaaa – you should get nice, clean popsicles. Should they be stuck, leave them in the water just a little longer.

Tips for making healthy breakfast popsicles at home:

  • I use Greek yogurt for the base of these breakfast pops because I love its tangy flavor and creaminess. It is thick, so you need to thin it out with a bit of milk.
  • If you’re not into Greek yogurt or on a tight budget, you could definitely use regular yogurt here instead — no need to thin it out, though.
  • For an extra creamy popsicle, choose full-fat Greek yogurt.
  • Use any granola you like here. I make these when I need to use up a handful of leftover granola that’s gone a bit stale. Here’s my favorite healthy granola recipe.
  • When filling your molds, leave about one-quarter inch of room at the top as the popsicles will expand as they freeze. Wipe off any excess mixture from the top. If that residue freezes, it will make unmolding difficult.
  • Freezing times vary depending on the effectiveness of your freezer. For the best results, place your molds toward the back of the freezer where it’s coldest.
  • You can leave pops in their molds for several days without any problems. However, it’s best to unmold them within a day so they don’t discolor or change texture.
