Breakfast Yogurt Pop

Ingredients

  • 3 cups chopped strawberries (from about 1 1/2 pints)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup granola (nut free if serving at school)

Directions

  1. Combine the strawberries and honey in a small saucepan and stir gently to combine. Let the berries macerate on the counter for at least 10 minutes, until mixture is dissolved and syrupy.
  2. Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring to a rapid simmer. Cook stirring often, until the strawberries are thick and jammy, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. You should have about 1 cup of jammy fruit. (At this point, the strawberries can be refrigerated for up to a week.)
  3. When ready to assemble the popsicles, whisk together the yogurt, 1/4 cup of the milk, and 2 tablespoons of honey in a medium bowl. The yogurt should be thick, but pourable (roughly the consistency of regular yogurt). If needed, whisk in a little more milk. Taste and add more honey if desired.
  4. Scoop out 1/4 cup of the yogurt mixture and stir it into the granola. This will help the granola freeze into the popsicles.
  5. Arrange 6 popsicle molds (1/2 cup capacity) on your work surface. Pour a generous spoonful of yogurt into the bottom of each mold. Add a scoop of granola and then a spoonful or two of strawberries. Continue layering yogurt, granola, and strawberries until the molds are filled. Tap the molds lightly agains the counter or use a popsicle stick to work out any air bubbles between the layers.
  6. Insert popsicle sticks into each mold freeze until solid, at least 6 hours.
  7. To unmold, run the popsicle molds under hot running water for a few seconds and gently easy the popsicles out of the molds.
