Breakfast Popsicles

How about a "treat" for breakfast? Who turns down a popsicle?
Lots of variations to make your favorite!!

1 1/2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt(I use greek yogurt)
1 tsp vanilla(if using plain yogurt)
3 ripe bananas
1 packet Carnation Instant Breakfast*
1/2 ripe avocado(optional but a good nutrition boost)

Place all in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into popsicle containers and place a stick.
Freeze overnight or at least 4-6 hours

Run a little warm water over the forms to help get them out.

Tip: Soak your popsicle sticks in water for an hour beforehand, it makes them not float to the top and helps them adhere when freezing(dont you hate it when you are trying to get the popsicle out and the stick comes out but not the popsicle!!)

Per Popsicle:(makes about 8 depending on the size of your forms)Using chocolate CIB
no avocado, 2% plain greek yogurt LINK
with avocado, 2% plain greek yogurt LINK
no avocado,  2% vanilla greek yogurt LINK
with avocado, 2% vanilla greek yogurt LINK
I use full fat for my 7 year old:
no avocado, full fat greek plain LINK
with avocado, full fat greek plain LINK

* any flavor you like! Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry all are delicious! You can add other fruit such as strawberries or blueberries or peaches( Extra fruit is probably best with vanilla flavor or you can omit the instant breakfast all together too!) If you omit the CIB and use plain yogurt you may want to add some honey to sweeten it to taste.
