Mango and Yogurt Popsicles are fun for breakfast! Yogurt and mangoes frozen on a stick are so much more fun than eating yogurt and fruit from a bowl!
My 5-year-old niece loves popsicles, and I’d love to feed her one of these Mango and Yogurt Popsicles right now. Her favorite place to eat popsicles is in the bathtub because that’s the only place my sister gives her a popsicle (she makes a good point that it’s the best place to eat one because it’s easy to clean a melting popsicle in the tub). All this got me thinking – maybe I can use popsicles to condition my little one to love breakfast!
Popsicles for breakfast, you ask? Oh yes, please! If my husband and I get excited about them for breakfast, then maybe our kid has a chance…or maybe we just still haven’t grown up yet. Either way, sounds tasty!
We have about 5 more months before our little one joins us. That means 5 months left to: 1) train our puppy, 2) enjoy a clean flat, 3) take as many naps as possible, 4) donate all the stuff stored in the guest room / baby’s room, and 5) watch as many TV shows and movies as possible. Maybe after we get that all done, we’ll start feeling a bit more grown up. But even at that point, I doubt we’ll stop eating popsicles for breakfast.
This recipe for Mango and Yogurt Popsicles is perfect for breakfast. It’s essentially just yogurt and mangoes frozen on a stick, which is much more fun than eating yogurt and fruit out of a bowl. I added a bit of condensed milk in there, but it’s absolutely no problem to leave it out. The condensed milk helps make the popsicles a bit creamier and sweeter, but if you want a healthy breakfast, simply ditch it.
- 1 cup (260g) Greek Yogurt
- 2 mangoes, peeled and cored (the mango flesh should weigh approximately 240g)
- 3 tablespoons (45g) sweetened condensed milk
- Blend everything together until smooth.
- Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 6 hours, or until frozen.
- If you prefer a creamier texture, every 30 minutes for the first 2 hours, remove the popsicles from the freezer and stir the mixture to break apart any pieces of ice.
