Banana Breakfast Popsicles

If any type of ice cream had the “best summer ever,” it had to have been banana ice cream. This very healthful option was featured in every magazine I read and every e-newsletter I subscribe to. If you haven’t heard of it, you might live under a rock. I’m teasing, of course, but seriously if you haven’t tried it, check out this recipe from Yummly.

Interestingly, toward the end of the summer this banana pop recipe started popping up more and more. I tried it. Loved it, too.

I especially love this one because you can roll it in whatever healthful ingredients you want. I opted for granola and dried blueberries, rolled in organic, Greek vanilla yogurt.

I also think these would make an adorable treat surprise for kids, either before school or on a weekend morning. Who wouldn’t love a breakfast popsicle?

Breakfast Banana Pops

  • 1/2 bananas
  • yogurt of choice
  • granola of choice or even crumbled s’mores
  • add-on ideas: mini chocolate chips, coconut shreds, cinnamon-stevia mix, raisins, etc.
  • popsicle stick or silverware to insert into the banana

Directions

-In a small bowl, sprinkle out the granola and toppings you’ve selected.

-Carefully (and securely) insert the stick into the halved banana.

-Holding the banana over another small bowl, coat one side with yogurt.

-Sprinkle granola over the freshly-coated side. If it doesn’t stick as well, simple roll or press the yogurt-coated side in the granola mix.

-Repeat ’til banana is coated all the way around.

-When finished coating, place the pop on wax paper and freeze.

You can store in the freezer for a while, but I wouldn’t recommend longer than one day.

And why would you want to wait 🙂
