A Super Cold Breakfast For Summer

Cold Breakfast Pop

July 10, 2013   12 Comments

Are you hot? How would you like some steaming oatmeal?


Well, I have an alternative for those of you who are sweltering. Try this - a frozen banana with granola stuck to it.

This is the opposite of a bowl of cereal with a few slices of banana. You have a banana with a few slices of cereal!

Why does this work? First, it is cold which will feel good in this summer heat. Secondly, it is fun. Everything is more fun served on a popsicle stick (I am looking at you Filet Mignon). Finally, these are easy to make.

All you need is some popsicle sticks (which you can find at craft stores), bananas, yogurt, granola, and some optional raisins or chocolate chips.

The best part is you don’t have to fire up your oven to make these. Just put them on some parchment paper in your freezer and the next morning you are looking like “Super Mom” as you hand them to your children.

Yes, you can wear a cape (I do).

These also make a great snack or replacement for those traditional sugar filled multi-colored popsicles.

Other fun stuff to do to bananas, a popsicle stick, and a freezer:

  • dip them in melted chocolate
  • spread them with peanut butter and then cereal
  • add Rice Krispies for added crunch

Have you tried a frozen banana treat?

Love this idea! Adding it to our breakfast rotation. We live in the Philippines and frozen mangos on a stick are one of our favorite snacks :)

ok, not the healthiest option, but I freeze bananas and dip them in "Magic Shell" - it the chocolate topping that hardens when it hits something cold (usually ice cream). also works great on raspberries

This should be considered a snack not a meal. 107 calories for a meal is not a healthy meal. Especially when it has 10.5 grams of sugar in that measly 107 calories. But not a bad snack.

Love your ideas never quit doing what you are doing!

Wait, so the instructions aren't quite clear to me. Do you dip the banana in the yogurt, and then in the granola, and then place on the parchment?

@Jennifer - that is what I meant. I am sorry that I wasn't explicit. thanks for your question!

I just tried this at home. It is delicious and quite nutritious I must say! I love bananas with most any topping.

I put banana halves on popsicle sticks, dip them in plain yogurt, roll them in coconut then freeze them...delicious!
