It seems like getting my kids to eat healthy foods is always a struggle, particularly at breakfast time. With all the sugary cereals and pastries available, it’s practically impossible to talk them into a healthy breakfast.
But it’s not hard at all to get my kids to eat these Berry Yogurt Breakfast Pops! Disguised as a fun popsicle, the kids don’t know that they are eating healthy berries and protein-packed Greek yogurt, with a little honey-sweetened granola on top.
We don’t need to tell them that these breakfast pops are good for them, do we? It’ll be our little secret 😉

How to make berry yogurt breakfast pops
These pops come together pretty quickly, but they do need some time to set up in the freezer, so you might want to put them together the night before so that they are ready first thing in the morning.
You’ll need these ingredients for the berry yogurt pops: Greek vanilla yogurt, milk, honey, vanilla extract, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, and your favorite granola.
Having a popsicle mold makes putting together these pops quick and easy, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry! You can always use small paper cups and popsicle sticks too.
To begin, wash and cut your strawberries into small pieces and place a few in the bottom of each mold.
Mix the yogurt, vanilla, milk and honey in a separate bowl, stirring well to combine. Pour some of this mixture over the berries, coming about halfway up the mold.
Add some blueberries and a few more strawberry pieces to the mold, then fill the rest of the mold with yogurt, making sure to leave about 1/2 inch of space at the top.
Insert the popsicle sticks into the mold, then place the mold into the freezer for about 30 minutes while you work on the granola.
To prepare the granola, drizzle 1 tablespoon of honey over the granola in a mixing bowl, then stir well to coat.
Pull the popsicle mold out of the freezer, then spoon the granola mixture on top of each popsicle in the mold, pressing down firmly.
Return the mold to the freezer and let the popsicles freeze overnight, or for at least 4 hours.
