While I am still trying to get used to our summer morning routine… I do love the extra time I get with my sweet boy. During the school year we try to be out the door by 7:30, but now we can leave closer to 9. So we have been stepping up our normally boring breakfasts with some fun options.
Hudson’s favorite new morning treat is breakfast popsicles. I came up with the idea after finding some customizable push pops at the craft store. Hudson thought they were so cool… so he is always excited to use them. (You don’t need them to make breakfast popsicles, you can use a regular popsicle mold, too!)
Here’s how we make our breakfast popsicles:
Greek yogurt in your favorite flavors (you can use regular yogurt, but I like the extra protein in greek yogurt)
Fruit mix-ins (fresh or frozen)
Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuits (smashed up into little bits)
All you have to do is layer the ingredients. Hudson likes to make his own the night before and put it in the freezer to eat in the morning. (you can also make and eat it right away like a parfait) These are SO easy to make, and your kids can customize them with their favorite ingredients.
My kids feel like they are getting a treat for breakfast, but I know they are getting a healthy start with a good mix of protein and whole grains. The Honey Bunches of Oats Breakfast Biscuits add a nice crunch to the popsicle and my kids call them breakfast cookies! Little do they know, these ‘cookies’ have over 55% of their daily recommendation of whole grains. I know it will keep them full with all the energy they need for summer camp fun!
They have 3 flavors: Honey Roasted, Strawberry and Chocolate Chip. Hudson’s favorite is chocolate chip… and I love the honey roasted. On the days when we wake up late and are rushing out the door… we can all just grab a package to go with a drink. (milk for the kids… coffee for me!)
