Ok last popsicle recipe I promise. This is what I get for buying yoghurt by the litre… popsicles falling out of my freezer door as you can see from Zesty Honey Iced Tea Popsicles with Ginger and Mango Honey Lassi Popsicle With Ginger And Chia Seeds. This ones pretty tasty as well, and the best bit… you can eat it for breakfast!
I’ve been enjoying counting the ways Canada and Australia differ, in culture, environment and language. One of the most difficult things to get used to is the fact that MUESLI doesn’t exist in Canada?!! Sure we have granola, but that’s loaded with sugar and fats. If I was back in Australia these popsicles would definitely be called Breakfast Popsicle With Honey Banana and Muesli…. Its unfortunate to downgrade muesli to just… oats, but I can’t think of a suitable alternative so I’m stuck with it.
“If you love honey as much as I do, I recommend going down to your local farmers market and talking to the producers. Alternatively, look for the Local Food Plus (LFP) logo which identifies and supports local and sustainable food such as honey.”
A common theme has been honey. Its just so gosh darn delicious. And the plus side…. also nutritious! Honey also tends to be a better alternative to most sweeteners from an environmental standpoint. Generally the carbon footprint will be much less from honey produced on a farm 30km away then from say cane sugar produced on a plantation on the other side of the world.
Recipe for Breakfast Popsicle With Honey Banana and Oats
Recipe by Rachel
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Time To Finish: 4 hours and 10 minutes
Ingredients for Breakfast Popsicle With Honey Banana and Oats
1.5 cups natural organic yoghurt
1/4 cup honey, raw preferred
3 tbsp oats
2 tbsp coconut flakes
1 tbsp flax seeds
4 dates roughly chopped (or 1 tbsp sultanas/raisins)
(or replace last 4 ingredients with 1/2 cup of your favourite muesli)
Method for Breakfast Popsicle With Honey Banana and Oats
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until mostly smooth with some chunks.
You want the mixture to still have some chunks, the best is when you bit into a bit of date, yum!
Trust me on these ones, you may not be able to imagine muesli in a popsicle, but the little chunks are delicious and oh so satisfying.
Pour mixture into popsicle holder. Freeze for at least 4 hours. If you don’t have a popsicle holder then I recommend enjoying it as a breakfast smoothie!
