The Popsicle obsession in our family started because of this morning treat!
Cereal Breakfast Popsicles were our very FIRST popsicle that we had made as a family!
How the Popsicle Obession Began
Last summer, the boys and I had been on Pinterest a lot for new, fun recipes for summer. We had so many ideas we were wanting to try from fun breakfast ideas to healthy dinner options for our warm summer nights, but hadn’t settled on any one idea to try. Well, as usual, we were at Target and came across a popsicle and ice-cream book and we immediately had to have it. I don’t know about you, but I’m the kind of person that needs a picture with every recipe and this book did NOT disappoint! Every recipe came with an image of how they might turn out looking, because lets be real – we were bound to mess up the pattern at some point on these gorgeous creations. So while at Target, we bought the book and the popsicle molds that we ALWAYS use by the brand Koji.
After buying the book, the boys and I had flagged a bunch of popsicles to try out, but we didn’t have any of the ingredients and I was skeptical of ruining a beautifully designed popsicle and not having it look like the picture. So, I went back to perusing Pinterest and randomly scrolling through Facebook when we found this gem!
The boys love any opportunity to eat a cereal that we don’t normally buy, so we had to try out this fun recipe! Of course, we still had to go back to the store to buy the ingredients for this recipe, but it was totally worth it!
First, start off by finely chopping the strawberries to measure a 1/c cup. The strawberries won’t be mashed or pureed, but you could definitely do so if you don’t want any strawberry chunks. Next, slice and mash up one whole banana. Then, combine the strawberries and mashed bananas together. Once you have completely mixed in the strawberries and bananas, pour in the Greek yogurt and strawberry milk. Stir all ingredients until combined. The next step is to add in the cereal! We used Fruity Pebbles and Fruit Loops for consistency in flavors, but you could substitute other cereals or even swap out the strawberry milk for regular milk.
When all ingredients are combined, you will want to spoon into the popsicle molds. After equally distributing the mixture into the molds, you can add a layer of Fruity Pebbles on the top of each popsicle. As you can see in the picture, we did not use our popsicle tops attached to the sticks for this recipe, but you could leave the top pieces attached if you want.
Cereal Breakfast Popsicles with Fruity Pebbles and Fruit Loops were a big hit with the boys and I know they will be with your family too!
You are sure to enjoy these popsicles all summer long, especially for those long mornings! 😉
