Because they are packed with healthy nourishing ingredients you can even have them for breakfast! Say what?! Ice Pops for breakfast? Yes, you feel good about having these for breakfast!

They are loaded with healthy probiotics from the coconut yogurt, protein and nurturing fats from the almond butter from American Dream Nut butter, and packed with antioxidants and vitamins from the raspberries. Making it a healthy balanced breakfast that is can be a grab and go on those busy summer mornings when you are running the kids to camps or off to work.

The best part about these breakfast popsicles is the almond butter from American Dream Nut Butters. Their Just Plain Nutty Almond Butter is hand down my favourite type of almond butter. It is so smooth and creamy. You can always catch me eating it straight from the jar with a spoon or sometimes just my finger.

Why you can have these Popsicles for Breakfast

  1. Coconut Yogurt– Loaded with beneficial bacteria for optimal gut health. More than ever, we need to take care of our microflora in our guts, due to it’s the essential role it plays in our immune health. Eating more probiotic-rich food like yogurt, Kiefer, and fermented vegetables is a great way to get these nutrients into your diet.
  2. Almond Butter– American Dream Almond Butter is one of the smoothest and creamiest nut butter I have tried. Perfect for the almond butter drizzle on these popsicles. Almond butter has beneficial protein to keep blood sugar balanced until your mid-morning snack. Also, almond butter is packed with beneficial fats for brain function.
  3. Raspberries- Raspberries are loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are needed daily for optimal health. Antioxidants help fight free radical damage and help support healthy cells.

Add-Ins

If you were wanting to make these breakfast popsicles with more protein you can add in a scoop of plant-based vanilla or berry protein powder. I wouldn’t add more than a small scoop because it might change the texture and flavour of the popsicles.

What you will need to make these breakfast popsicles:

  • Raspberries (frozen works great if you don’t have fresh ones on hand). You can also freeze a few if you only have fresh to decorate the tops of your popsicles.
  • Banana– Fresh banana is a must. The frozen makes the mixture too thick to pour.
  • Yogurt- A thick creamy coconut yogurt works best for this. I like to use Maison Riviera Coconut yogurt unsweetened.
  • Almond Butter– You would get a better almond butter then American Dream’s Just Plain Nutty Almond Butter. They make their products in small batches, so no rancid nut butter!! Every jar of almond butter taste so fresh and the almonds are roasted perfectly. If you want to learn more about this amazing family-run company you can read a bit about their story on this post.
  • Sweetener- I used agave syrup in this recipe. But you could also use maple syrup or honey.
  • Popsicle molds– If you don’t have any popsicle molds at home you can use dixie cups with popsicle sticks. This is my favourite popsicle mold. It just makes them look so pretty and won’t break the bank account. To find popsicle stick just head over to your local craft store.
  • Blender– Any blender will work for this recipe. You can also use a handheld blender as well.

Making your popsicles:

  1. Wash your raspberries well. I always like to use organic raspberries, and if they are not in season, I use frozen organic raspberries.
  2. Pour your yogurt into a blender or bowl if you are using a handheld blender.
  3. Then pour in your raspberries into the blender.
  4. Drizzle in your almond butter and your sweetener of choice. Look above for ideas.
  5. Lastly, put your banana in the blender. You can break it apart into smaller chunks for more effortless blending.
  6. Blend on high until smooth.
  7. Pour into your popsicle molds,. If you like you can add some more raspberries in the mold by adding a few raspberry pieces to the bottom of the mold and then pouring a little of the smoothie mixture on top until it fills up halfway on the mold and then place a few more raspberries or break them into chunks and place in the mold. Fill the rest of the mold to the top.
  8. TIP TOP NOT GET AIR BUBBLES- This is a thick mixture, so to prevent air bubbles ruining your beautiful popsicles, hit the mold firmly on the counter a few times to work out the air bubbles. If you have clear sides on your popsicle mold you will be able to see when the air bubbles have worked their way out. I hit mine firmly down five times to get out all my air bubbles.
  9. Freeze for about 6 hours. I like to make these the night before, so breakfast is a quick grab and go.
  10. Drizzle with more American Dream Just Plain Nutty Almond Butter and you can also freeze a few raspberries to break apart and sprinkle on the nut butter.

Storing your popsicles

Storing your breakfast popsicles so they stay fresh and gorgeous.

  • Only drizzle with almond butter when you are ready to eat them. If you re-freeze them the almond butter can dry out.
  • After they freeze in the molds make sure the lid stays on them. I sometimes find it hard to put the lid back on when I remove it, so I place all my popsicles into a zip lock or reusable freezer bag. Suck out the excess air to keep them from getting dry on the outside if you are freezing them for more then a week.

I really hope you love these breakfast popsicles as much as we did. I can tell you right now that my girls were over the moon that they could have a popsicle for breakfast!!

Stay cool, stay kind and always be your radiant gorgeous self.

With love from our kitchen to yours,
