Popsicles for breakfast on a hot summer’s day?! Yes please! These yogurt and granola popsicles are delicious anytime of day, but their wholesome ingredients make them a totally acceptable breakfast option that’s perfect for summer. (Plus, just imagine your little ones’ faces when you bring popsicles to the table first thing in the morning — summer magic!)
Here’s what you’ll need:
- your favourite yogurt (we use plain Greek yogurt sweetened with honey)
- berries and bananas, sliced
- popsicle moulds and sticks

Alright, first up, let’s talk about yogurt options… I’m a big fan of using whatever I have in the house when it comes to cooking (because let’s face it — no one wants to make a special trip to the grocery store just to pull together a recipe), so go ahead and use whatever you have in the fridge. That being said, if you have options, I’d recommend going with whatever has the highest milk fat content. The extra fat will give your finished popsicles a smoother, creamier texture whereas no-fat yogurt tends to freeze harder and icier.
Alright, with your yogurt picked out, it’s time to start assembling your popsicles. This is a perfect job for little ones as all it really requires is some layering. We like to start with a tiny bit of granola in the tops of our moulds before placing a couple of pieces of fruit along the sides and adding a scoop of yogurt. We then gently tap the moulds on our work surface to pack everything in tightly and continue layering.
When you’re done, gently slide your popsicle sticks down the centre of your moulds and put the whole thing in the freezer for at least a few hours, but preferably more.
When you’re ready to enjoy a cool treat, simply run the outside of the moulds under some warm water and gently pull the popsicles out.
