Breakfast can be a trial. Sometimes it’s hard to get the kids to eat a healthy breakfast before they run out the door to catch the school bus or play with their friends. This is specially true during long weekends and school vacations. They are so anxious to go out and play they try to skip breakfast. To get them to eat I started making these Frozen Breakfast Parfait Bars.
These frozen breakfast parfaits bars aren’t just yummy, they look pretty too! My grandsons grab them for breakfast on their way out to school or play. Breakfast is much more enticing when it looks like and ice cream bar. They make great healthy snacks too!
These bars have no added sugar and use fresh or frozen berries. They are the perfect treat anytime of year, but specially summer![spacer height=”-20px”]
Frozen Breakfast Parfait Bars
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (if using frozen be sure to thaw them first)
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup honey & oat granola
1. Puree bluberries.
2. Pour into molds – fill molds about 1/3
3. Freeze for 1-2 hours.
4. Stir granola into the yogurt and spoon into the mold on top of frozen blueberry puree. Gently press down on the yogurt mixture to make sure it sits right on top of blueberries. Fill upto 2/3 of the mold.
5. Freeze for 1-2 hours.
6. Puree strawberries.
7. Pour into molds to the top.
8. Freeze for another 4 hours.
9. Remove from molds and enjoy!
To remove from molds run hot water on all sides of the molds, including bottom. It should slip right out.
I used Popsicle Molds to make my breakfast parfait bars. You can get some on Amazon. (Affiliate Link)
If you don’t have popsicle molds you can use cups. Set the cups in a tray, fill with mixture, and cover them with a sheet of clear plastic wrap, cut slits in the wrap corresponding to the center of each cup, slip a wooden popsicle stick in the hole and in the center of the filled cups. The plastic wrap will keep the sticks in the center while it freezes.
