Muesli Yogurt Pops

 

Yields:  2 cups             Prep Time:  10 minutes       Total Time:  8 hours (freezing time)

 

No blender needed for these pops, just simply mash bananas, and add a few more nutrient rich ingredients such as oats and yogurt, and out comes a deliciously healthy frozen treat!

 

Ingredients

1 cup whole milk vanilla yogurt

1 banana (about 1 cup)

1/2 cup coconut milk (can use canned or carton) *see note

1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats

1 tablespoon honey (can simply omit for children under 1)

 

*I used the refrigerated coconut milk, yet the canned coconut milk is definitely an option

 

Directions

1. Mash bananas in a bowl until the big chunks are gone.

 

2. Add yogurt, coconut milk, oats and honey.  Stir until well combined.

 

3. Pour mixture into popsicle molds and place in the freezer.  Freeze at least 8 hours or overnight, until solid.

 

 

4. Remove from popsicle mold and enjoy!

 

Yes, it’s winter here in the Midwest, but these popsicles were anxiously awaited by three eager kiddos – for breakfast! 

 

Once again, I have a recipe that I can have made ahead for those busy mornings…and it’s not cereal!  There is something to be said for a warm breakfast for my kiddos, yet these are the kids that spent the last day of our holiday break wearing their bathing suits.  So, temperature isn’t as important as intrigue of the method of preparation.  And in this case, a frozen breakfast was the winner!

 

Since the first time I made these, we’ve also had as a snack and even dessert. 

 

Muesli is commonly known as a combination of dry rolled oats, sometimes dried or fresh fruits and nuts among other similar ingredients.  It is often eaten with yogurt or milk.  When I was younger, my dad would make me a breakfast with warm oatmeal, layered with yogurt, diced bananas and topped with crunchy granola.  He called it muesli, and ever since I have always had a fondness for oats, yogurt and banana.

 

In this recipe, I purposely made it without a blender, as to differentiate from a smoothie turned popsicle.  The mashed bananas are mashed pretty darn well to remove most chunks.  It really works well to use the natural sweetness from the bananas, as well as the already sweetened yogurt (I did use vanilla yogurt, but of course you could opt for plan and add you own sweeteners).

 

All in all, I’m pretty excited about these, and am looking to experiment with different ingredients.  The ones included are already super star ones.  Bananas are loaded with fiber, potassium and B vitamins.  Oatmeal is rich in iron and vegetarian protein, as well as fiber.  Yogurt, especially whole milk yogurt, has protein and and calcium.  Pretty good for a frozen pop!
