Frozen Breakfast Parfait Bars

Frozen Breakfast Parfait Bars

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 BarsI 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.

Cranberry Pupcicles

Cranberry Pupcicles

PupciclesI know most of us have been busy with Thanksgiving preparations, but don’t forget your furry friends!  They need some special treats too!

My Siberian Husky, Cannoli, loves her treats and since we’ve been trying to put some weight on her I’ve been making her plenty.  Frozen treats are her favorites, and no wonder a Husky living in Hawaii loves anything cold!

While I was shopping for holiday fixings I picked up some extra fresh cranberries.  I made them into Cannoli’s favorite frozen treat, “Pupcicles”.  I figured why not incorporate some holiday food to her favorites.  It’s so easy to make, took me just 10 minutes and she loves them.

These pupcicles are healthy too!  Cranberries are good for your pet’s urinary tract and yogurt is a good source for calcium.  If you’re watching your pup’s weight use lowfat yogurt instead of full fat.
This recipes only has 2 ingredients!  Whip some up today, it’s a great way to use those extra cranberries you didn’t use for your cranberry sauce this year.

Ingredients:

24 oz. container plain Greek yogurt
1 cup  fresh cranberries – rinsed

Directions:

Dump clean cranberries into yogurt and mix until well distributed.

Scoop into freezer shape molds.  I use paper or styrofoam cups as molds.  It makes storing and unmolding simple.  I just peel off the cup before I give it to Cannoli.  You can also use ice cube trays, I like the silicone ones they are easier to unmold!

Freeze for at least 6 hours.

Remove from mold when ready to give your pet.
