Popsicles for breakfast? It's possible by combining the right ingredients, like non-fat greek yogurt and seasonal fruits like strawberries or blueberries. The best part is that you can get creative by adding variety to your homemade popsicles. Experiment with other fruit options like bananas, cherries, raspberries and mangoes, to name a few. All you need to get started are a few ingredients and home-made popsicle molds, which can be purchased on popular shopping websites or at local retailers.
The greek yogurt provides a creamy texture, but also adds protein and lower sugar, compared to store-bought popsicles. Why save for just breakfast? Yogurt popsicles are a great snack or dessert for post-op bariatric patients and anyone looking to make healthier food choices.
