Posted on July 16, 2015

Popsicle Week 2015 is still going strong. Everywhere I look, popsicles are flying at my face.

Have you been following along? I hope so. There are boozy popsicles, decadent chocolate popsicles and popsicles that are almost too pretty to eat. Make sure to check out all the recipes on Billy’s popsicle page, browse the Pinterest board and take a peak at the hashtag #popsicleweek on Instagram. I guarantee you’ll find something that suits your fancy. Unless you hate popsicles. Then I don’t think we can be friends anymore. Sorry/not sorry.

Kale-Yogurt-Popsicles-1

For such an epic week, I decided that one popsicle recipe just wasn’t enough. So I whipped up these Green Smoothie Breakfast Popsicles on the fly and I’m presenting them to you today in all their healthy-full-ness (new word?) glory.

Loaded with kale, grapes, bananas, green tea and Greek yogurt, these beauties are basically a smoothie served on a stick. They are a great way to start your morning. And who doesn’t love getting to eat a popsicle for breakfast? It feels kind of naughty, but really it’s not.

Popsicle Week 2015 ends Friday {insert sad face}. Get ’em while they’re hot. Err…cold, actually.

Cheers,

Liz

Green Smoothie Breakfast Popsicles {Popsicle Week}

Yield: Makes 10-12 popsicles, depending on your mold

Green Smoothie Breakfast Popsicles {Popsicle Week}

Ingredients

  • 2 cups packed kale leaves
  • 1 cup green grapes
  • 1 cup brewed green tea, cooled to room temperature
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • About 1 3/4 cups Greek yogurt, divided

Instructions

  1. Add the kale, grapes, green tea, banana, honey and 1 cup of the Greek yogurt to your blender. Blend on high until smooth.
  2. Fill your popsicle molds with the kale smoothie mixture until they are about 3/4 full. Then spoon about 1 tablespoon of the remaining Greek yogurt into the tops of each of the molds. Use a skewer to help push the dollop of Greek yogurt down into the popsicle mold and lightly swirl it around.
  3. Transfer the molds to your freezer for about 45-60 minutes, or until the popsicles are partially set. Insert wooden sticks or dowels, then continue to freeze the popsicles until they are completely solid, about 4-5 hours more.
  4. Remove the popsicles from their molds before serving. You can run a little warm water over the molds to help loosen the popsicles from their molds.

Notes

1. For maximum creaminess, I recommend using full fat Greek yogurt for this recipe.

  • Popsicles for breakfast? Genius idea! These look delicious and they are fully packed with good things for you. I made several of green smoothies, but never tried a green smoothie popsicle, definitely I’ll have to change that!

    Reply

    • I hope you give it a try, Florian!


  • Oh my word love this idea! Green Smoothie Popsicles! Ckeverrrrr! 🙂

    Reply

    • “Clever” Sorry!


    • Thanks, Johlene. I hope you try them out!


    • How has no one come up w/ this idea before?? This is going to be such a time-saver and an empowerment! Not to mention…cool! As a vegan, I think I’ll try either leaving out the Greek yogurt, or substituting tofu (maybe honey-sweetened tofu). Wow, this recipe is making me think…coffee popsicle! Good both for quick coffee (on a stick!), and for iced coffee! Wow.
      I think I’ll try this out in my juicer. I could even take this to work w/ me! Or on my road trips, if I keep a cooler w/ an ice pack in it. Brave new world!


    • So glad you love the idea! And coffee popsicles sound awesome! 🙂
