Breakfast popsicles are a fun way to eat a healthy breakfast in the summer. It's pretty much porridge ingredients frozen on a stick.
The summer is beginning to draw to a close and it's nearly time for the kids to go back to school. We're all getting a bit frazzled but luckily drawing, toy cars and a huge batch of playdough that I made have been filling up our days.
I like to surprise my little ones with unusual breakfasts. This week we've had breakfast cookies, spinach pancakes, smoothies and these frozen breakfast popsicles/ice lollies/ice pops. Whatever you want to call them, they've packed all the goodness of a porridge breakfast onto a frozen stick.
The kids squealed with delight when I presented them with their breakfast, and I certainly enjoyed mine. We had foraged for blackberries the day before and I whipped these together quickly and in secret. Their faces were filled with smiles as they downed their breakfast that morning. Now if only the weather would warm up again so we can make another batch.
I've used blackberries in these, which can be a little bit tart, so feel free to leave them out or substitute for banana slices, strawberries or any other fruit that you have available. You can also substitute the almond milk for plain cow's milk, but we prefer the taste of almond.

What a genius idea of making breakfast oats Popsicle. Sounds absolutely delicious 🙂 Love it!
How clever Kate and a great idea for fussy young eaters. I imagine this might lend itself to other grains too. So many options.
How beautiful, Kate. These sound wonderful and delicious. xo, Catherine

These sound delicious! What a fabulous healthy breakfast for kids!
Breakfast popsicles - genius! And who can resist when the blackberries are so deliciously plump?
Mmmmm, they look so scrummy! I bet they taste just as good unfrozen too 🙂
Thanks so much for sharing a link to my blackberry lollipops too, although they're no where near as healthy as yours!
Thanks Jane! They were definitely good as a smoothie before being frozen 🙂
These look amazing. I think my kids would never eat anything else for breakfast so it is a risky proposition to present them with popsicles! Pinned!
This morning we had breakfast cupcakes (sugar-free banana oat muffins, but hey, if I call them cupcakes they think that they're cupcakes!)
Ooo I love the idea of a breakfast popsicle! Some mornings I just want to eat something cold and adding oats makes it a perfect breakfast option 🙂 pinned and scheduled a tweet 😉
It's all traditional breakfast food, just frozen! The kids were so delighted 🙂
These sound amazing. And so pretty too x
Thanks Emily. They tasted as good as they looked!

Looks so yum!! I am sure gonna try this one.
Let me know how you get on with them!
Love these breakfast lollies, I'd love one for breakfast - am now feeling huge pangs of guilt that I never got my new lolly moulds into action, just where did the summer go!? Thanks for entering #CreditCrunchMunch and calling me "Queen of Jams":-)
You are the undisputed Jam Queen, Camilla!
Now this are the kind of eats my Kiddoes would help me make everyday.
Definitely a kid-friendly way to eat porridge!
