Breakfast Smoothie Pops

Breakfast is the day’s most important meal and should house all your nutritional needs. These protein + oat protein-pops are Michaela Blaney’s answer for the whole family. Quick, convenient, and tasty. Fruit adds flavor and fiber; the protein keeps us from getting a glucose spike too early in the morning and houses sustainable energy, oats aid in stabilizing our blood sugars through and altogether. It is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Here’s the best part — we know how hard it is getting out the door in the morning, so make these the night before, freeze them and serve the kiddos “popsicles” for breakfast en route to school. No more tears and tantrums when they don’t want what you’re serving. The recipe makes enough for mom and dad to enjoy one too!

Michaela Blaney is a certified health coach, clean recipe developer, and overall health enthusiast. Being a proud “Aunt” to many tiny humans, cooking nutritious and “kid-approved” meals has become both her hobby and a life feat. She sees first-hand how challenging being a parent is — juggling all the balls while trying to appease many picky appetites that change with the wind. She has made it her goal to provide friends and parents alike with tasty, super nutritious, and fun food for the whole family.

BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE POPS RECIPE

BLUEBERRY PROTEIN POPS

1-2 frozen bananas (depending on size)

2 cups frozen blueberries

2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (I use Ritual or Rootz)

1 handful of frozen spinach

handful or blackberries

Instructions

Blend all ingredients except the blackberries on high for 1 minute until smooth (most blenders have a smoothie option).

Add the blackberries and pulse a few times.

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight.

Take what’s leftover, separate it into two mason jars, and store it in the fridge until the morning!
