Tropical smoothie breakfast popsicles

Breakfast popsicles are probably the most genius invention. Like, ever. Especially for moms who have kids who aren’t morning people and take around 4 million years to tell me what they want for breakfast. (!!!) Um, hi. I have more important things to do than stand here listing all your breakfast options like a waitress listing specials in a diner. And yes, I know I shouldn’t be doing that but honestly you guys, I just don’t have the energy for a fight in the morning so I just give them every possible option and hope that something tickles their fancy so I can get something in them before they head off to school.

But since I’ve been making breakfast smoothie popsicles their options are more streamlined and our mornings are more “happy-family” than “mom-is-about-to-lose-her-sh!t”. Plus they’re so easy to make. I usually make two flavors over the weekend and have them in the freezer on stand-by. They make excellent “sweets” when the kids are in the mood for a snack and stand-in for dessert regularly. There’s no guilt involved either because they are genuinely healthy and filled with fruit, nuts, seeds and good proteins. AND they hit pretty much every dietary requirement you can think of. They are gluten-free, lactose-free and you can just leave out the nuts for any nut allergies. Who’s winning at mom-life now?!

    Absolutely brilliant. I love that you can make them ahead. My picky husband who says he doesn’t like yogurt might even go for these. Wish me luck!
