Vanilla Pear Breakfast Pops

Fruit is often considered essential to a healthful breakfast, and an ice pop is just a fun treat. But what would happen if the two became one? A healthful ice pop? And a fun-filled breakfast food that eats like a treat? If you answered “both” – you win, and so will your kids. Each of these ingenious breakfast pops provides a quarter cup of fruit, along with calcium-rich yogurt. Kids can make them the evening of a slumber party, freeze them overnight and start the next day with both a fun and a nutritious breakfast food.

Ingredients

  • 1

    can (15 ounces) pear halves in juice

  • 1

    container (6 ounces) low-fat vanilla yogurt

Directions

The night before, combine ingredients in a blender or food processor, and with an adult watching, purée on high until smooth. Pour into 3-ounce, ice-pop molds; the mixture will make 7 ice pops. Insert the sticks that come with the molds and freeze overnight. To serve: Wake up early, remove the ice pops from the freezer and set aside. Watch a cartoon or play a short game (something that takes about 10 minutes) to give the ice pops time to warm up a little, which will make them a lot easier to pop out of their molds. Pop the pops and eat. Take a napkin with you to catch any drips.
