If your kids are anything like mine, they’re much more excited to run around outside in the morning in the warmer months than sitting down and eating breakfast– but we all know breakfast is important, so why not make it a little more fun in the morning in the summer? Enter: smoothie popsicles!

This is my kids’ favorite way to enjoy breakfast in the summer, hidden in the most fun package– popsicle molds! As a mom-bonus, they’re packed with nutrients (frozen fruit!) and protein and probiotics (greek yogurt!) and they’re easy to make using your kids favorite smoothie combinations- I’ve included a few of my kids’ favorites, below!

Summer Smoothie Popsicles:
Makes 6 pops

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen fruit (see options, below)
  • 3/4 cup full-fat greek yogurt
  • 3-4 tbsp honey or sweetener of choice (to taste)
  • 1 cup milk of choice (more as needed)
  • Add-ins as desired (cocoa powder, etc)

Options:

Pineapple Blueberry:
1 cup pineapple + 1/2 cup blueberries

Chocolate Cherry:
1 1/2 cups frozen cherries + 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Funky Monkey:
3 frozen bananas + 1/2 cup frozen strawberries + 2 tbsp cocoa power

Kid-Colada:
1 frozen banana + 1/2 cup pineapple + 1/2 cup mango
Use canned light coconut milk as liquid

Instructions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend well, adding more liquid until mixture is thick but pourabale. Taste for sweetness and adjust as needed.
  2. Grease a 6-cup popsicle mold with oil or nonstick cooking spray (I use avocado-oil based). Pour smoothie mixture to fill line. Cover, place in freezer and freeze for 3-4 hours before enjoying.
