Do you get a bit fed up of chocolate in the run up to Easter and wish you could feed the kids some healthier Easter treats? I know my boys eat far too much chocolate over Easter so this year I’m trying to come up with some fun healthier alternatives for Easter treats, starting with this delicious Easter egg breakfast popsicles recipe.
This super simple recipe is a great easy recipe for kids to make themselves, my two year old absolutely loved helping me to make these and was very proud indeed when the time came to taste test them, proudly declaring ‘I made this!’ several times to everyone present in the room at the time! Getting kids involved in the kitchen is such a great way to build confidence, not to mention so many valuable life skills that will stay with them forever.
I made these in a fun Easter egg shaped silcone mould to keep them seasonal for this time of year, but you could use any shape mould or silicone muffin cups too, or if you prefer you can also make them up in an ice lolly mould instead.
Easter Egg Breakfast Popsicles Recipe
- 500g Yoghurt*
- handful granola
- handful blueberries
- handful raspberries
*I used three flavours of yoghurt which gave these some really pretty colours, but you can use whatever flavour you prefer. For a really healthy treat, natural or greek yoghurt is perfect because it doesn’t have any added sugar. Dairy free yoghurt alternatives such as soya yoghurt should also work for this recipe.
Place a small dollop of yoghurt into each egg in your silicone mould, filling each egg to about a third. Push chunks of granola into the yoghurt, then add a few raspberries and blueberries to each egg too.
Place a lolly stick into each compartment, laying it down as flat as possible.
Fill each egg to the top with yoghurt, making sure it covers all of the fruit and the lolly stick.
Place mould in the freezer and freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight, until the eggs are frozen through and solid. Once frozen, pop out of the moulds, leave the popsicles on a plate at room temperature for a couple of minutes to soften a little then serve immediately.
Store any extra popsicles in an air tight container or bag in the freezer until ready to eat.
