Mornings are tough for me (aka they’re not fun). Wake up at 6:15, shower, makeup, the ever-trying task of picking out an outfit (why do I constantly have nothing to wear), out the door by 7:30, a battle with Portland south-bound traffic, and (fingers-crossed) making it to work by 8am. There’s no lingering over the morning paper, brewing a cup of coffee, and soaking in the morning sun. Perhaps when I retire in 30-gazilion years, but for now… Mornings are a complete and total bummer.

Let’s try to make mornings more fun, shall we?

How about popsicles for breakfast?

BREAKFAST-POPSICLES-1These Yogurt & Granola Breakfast Protein Popsicles will let you start of the day the right wayWith dessert. Dessert in the form of a fruit and protein packed grab-and-go breakfast that will keep you energized all morning long! What’s more? They’re vegan and dairy-free.

To give these popsicles a protein boost, I snuck in a bit of the Kashi® Organic Breakfast Superblends protein powder that I’ve been using it in my breakfast smoothie bowls to give them an extra boost. It’s a plant based powder that’s organic, gluten-free, vegan and gives me an extra 15g of protein – It definitely helps to keep the energy level up during crazy days. They’re pretty much like a yogurt parfait on a stick – Fruit, yogurt and granola – But somehow SO much more fun. Maybe it’s because of the stares you get from other drivers while you’re enjoying a popsicle on your way to work. And if you have kids – I’d say it’d be pretty easy to convince them to have a popsicle for breakfast too!

    Fun idea!! Mornings are rushed for me, too! I just started adding whey protein powder to greek yogurt for extra protein–hadn’t though to freeze it!

    Yum! I usually grab avocado toast and coffee after I work out and before kids go to school – mornings are so crazy! This looks like a fun treat for breakfast and an afternoon snack!

      I’m a huge fan of avocado toast too Marlynn! I love it mashed up on top of a bagel – Usually my treat when we have “Bagel Wednesdays” at work 😉
