Most of the breakfast of champions recipes have something to do with excessive amounts of sugar, which I will always love, son;’t get me wrong. But today’s BOC is a little bit healthier…for those days when you’re not quite ready for pb and j waffles or french toast a la mode at 8 o’clock in the morning. 🙂
I made these yogurt and granola fig pops in just a couple of minutes, popped them in the freezer, and had breakfast for the whole week. Quickest breakfast ever!
And if you’re not a fig fan (I grab them whenever I see them at Whole Food because its seems like the seasons for figs are so short), you can easily switch out the figs for your favorite fruit…strawberries, nectarines, blueberries, etc.
Ingredients (makes 6 popsicles)
- 2 cups of vanilla yogurt
- 1/3 cup of honey (you can use more or less if desired depending on how sweet you like it)*
- 1/3 cup of granola
- 3 figs (any variety)
*Keep in mind that the sweetness of things tends to dull a bit when frozen, so error on the side of slightly too sweet when tasting before freezing, as opposed to slightly not set enough, if that makes sense.
1. Start by washing and drying the figs, then slicing them into thin(ish) slices. Set aside.
2. Whisk together honey and yogurt until combined.
3. Start by adding a slice of fig to each popsicle mold, then add 1-2 spoonfuls of yogurt and honey mixture.
4. Next, add a layer of granola. Followed by more yogurt mixture, another slice of fig, etc. Continue this process until each mold is filled.
5. Add popsicle sticks (because yogurt is a semi solid, you won’t have to wait until the popsicles are partially frozen to add them in), then freeze for 3-4 hours or until full frozen.
I love how simple these are to make, but I especially love how easy they are to eat, since they’re on a stick and all. I grab one when I’m headed out the door for work and eat it on my drive in. Doesn’t get any easier than that!

Hi Margo. I would recommend that you do not mix again after they are put in the freezer. Just let them freeze on their own. 🙂Brittni
