Yogurt Parfait Popsicles

Warm weather is for popsicles, I even believe in popsicles for breakfast! To be fair these Parfait Popsicles are equally as good for snack time as they are for breakfast, nonetheless they are delicious healthy popsicles anyone can enjoy anytime of day!

My oldest kid is not a breakfast person (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree), so I was thinking of some fun breakfast ideas for the summertime and these breakfast popsicles totally nailed it.

Filled with fruit, yogurt, and granola with no added sugars this popsicle is basically what I would serve as a yogurt bowl option to my family in the morning just you know…frozen.

The best part is of course you can customize it to your family. You can use different fruits and granola’s for the center!

So let’s make some popsicles!

Special Equipment

Yes making popsicles is waaaay easier with a popsicle mold. Of course if you don’t have one you can get creative and use paper cups and sticks to make popsicles at home.

After buying cheap plastic molds multiple times to only have them fall apart on me or not be large enough I finally bought a nicer silicone popsicle mold off of amazon for just a few more dollars and it was totally worth it. The following is the one I have that I really like, and of course there are a lot more options on Amazon or other retailers.

Ingredients

You will need the following:

  • Banana
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Granola – any kind, I like a ‘classic’ flavor here best

For a complete detailed list of the ingredients continue towards the bottom of the page.

Ingredients to make parfait popsicles on a white plate including strawberries, a banana, yogurt, and granola.

Instructions

Add the peeled banana and yogurt to a blender. Blend until smooth. Divide the mixture in half, reserve half the mixture covered in the fridge for later. Divide the other half of the mixture between all the popsicle molds. Add the mold to the freezer and freeze for 1 hour.

Once the first part of the popsicle is frozen move on to the strawberry mixture. Add the strawberries to a blender and blend until smooth. Divide the blended strawberries between the popsicle molds. 

Now add about 1-2 teaspoons of the granola into the molds on top of the blended strawberries, it’s okay if some of the granola sinks into the strawberries. The amount of the granola doesn’t have to be exact during this step. Note, if you are able to add the popsicle sticks before adding the granola that works best, but some popsicle molds the top is attached you might not be able too, that is okay just add it at the end. Transfer to freezer and let freeze for 1 hour.

Lastly add the reserved half of the banana yogurt mixture evenly on top of the strawberries & granola. Make sure to add sticks to the popsicles & transfer back to the freezer and let freeze for at least one more hour or until frozen solid. Enjoy!

Tips, Tricks, & Questions

  • The popsicle mold I use (listed above) holds 10 popsicles and this recipe makes 10 popsicles that are on the smaller size, so if you have a popsicle mold that fits 8 or 12 the same amount of ingredients should work, if making more or less than that you might want to double or half the ingredients.
  • I prefer a classic granola like Bob’s Red Mill Classic Granola but feel free to use what you like, you could even use homemade granola! PLUS you can even make this recipe gluten-free by using gluten-free granola.
  • Feel free to use other fruits in place of the strawberries. I think this would be fantastic with blueberries, cherries, peaches, or raspberries.
  • Yes you can substitute Greek Yogurt for the Plain Yogurt, the bonus would be more protein, the negative would be it is more tart so the whole popsicle might be more tart but that is a personal preference.
