With three ingredients you can put together a delicious breakfast for kids that comes in especially handy when you’re camping because as the kids tell us ‘breakfast takes forever’ when you’re waiting for it in the wilderness. They’re also really simple to make, making it simple to pop them in the freezer the night before you’re bound to leave on your next adventure (or when you want an easy pre-breakfast for the kids) and stash them in the freezer of the RV that you’re taking on your next glamping trip.
‘Cereal and Milk’ Ice Pops
500 g vanilla yogurt (or your choice of flavour)
1/2 cup milk
handful of cereal
Mix the vanilla yogurt and milk well. I like to do this in the mixer so it’s well combined, as this creates the best texture for the ice pops. When it’s combined, to lessen the mess, I line a large cup with a freezer bag and fill it up, using the freezer bag as a piping bag for the base of the ice pop. This helps to get rid of some of the mess that comes with making ice pops, especially if you’re using the fantastic ‘Fish Pops’ from Zoku.
Next, either layer the cereal and yogurt layers together in the popsicles, or break up the cereal if you are using a large size of cereal. Some of the kids favourite cereals for this recipe is fruit loops, golden grahams and good old, easy Cheerios.
Freeze overnight. With any kind of ‘milk based’ popsicles, I prefer the silicon molds because they can easily pop right out, yet you’ve got the sturdiness of the plastic casing around the mold.
These pops are a kid favourite because it’s like they’re eating breakfast – and if you pop them in the freezer fast enough, the cereal doesn’t get soggy. It’s a three ingredient frozen breakfast that you won’t feel bad feeding the kids – because you can control the type of yogurt, sugar, and cereal within the pops – and make them as ‘fun’ or as healthy as you would like.
Plus, the texture of the frozen yogurt popsicles is bang on.
