“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.” - John Gunther
This morning I was lucky enough to have a full hour to cook breakfast. Of course this involved attempting to make an elaborate popsicle. Attempting to puree peaches without a food processor while still half asleep resulted in a lumpy sauce that i tried to cram into frozen popsicle molds. As you can see above, this resulted in a failed popsicle. I ate it and it gave me the energy to make the masterpiece pictured below it. Now enough about my morning. Time for the recipe that will make everyone a morning person.
Morning Person Fruit Smoothie Popsicles
Peeled fresh peach
Greek yogurt (I used peach flavored)
A few teaspoons of orange juice
Instructions: Slice your peach into chunks. Pull out your food processor (if you have one) or your patience (if all you have is a fork and a bowl) and add the orange juice and peach chunks. Puree them together until the consistency of your mixture is as thin as possible. Press strawberry slices against the sides of your mold. Use a plastic bag with the tip trimmed off to squeeze yogurt into your mold. Since greek yogurt is thick it should create some squiggly channels. Pour your puree into these channels until your molds are filled to the brim. Freeze. Eat for breakfast with cereal. Have the best day of your life.
Note on molds: I use a Zoku Quick Pop Maker so my pops freeze very quickly (3-7minutes). This is the reason that i can press strawberries against the sides and they stay. Also the reason that my yogurt and puree didn’t get all mixed together while freezing. If you don’t have a quick pop maker, you can still make these pops. Just freeze yogurt and strawberry slices in the bottom of your mold before adding the puree and refreezing.
