Filled with a fruity yogurt blend and a whole grain streusel these peach pluot parfait popsicles are the perfect grab-and-go summer breakfast!
Our mornings are about to get so much better.
Popsicles! For breakfast! And we don’t even have to feel like we should put ourselves in a punishment corner for it.
I feel like we’ve made it in life.
The way I see it, breakfast ignites one of two passions in people: lust or total and utter disdain.
There is no question that I am the former. I race out of bed because I’ve been dreaming about what I’m going to eat for breakfast since the night before. It’s almost a problem.
But I totally get that there are some people whose response to eating anything before noon is, “You want me to do what?! With what?! WHEN?!”
In fact, I have a husband like that.
I would like to say that we’ve learned to agree to disagree, but actually I just feel too strongly that breakfast is THE most important meal of the day…so mostly I just spend a lot of time trying to shove nutrition down his throat before he leaves for work in the morning.
Through some trial and error (okay…a lot of error) I’ve found that he is more likely to eat if something is grab-and-go or easily inhale-able than if he has to make any effort at all to eat it.
That’s where these popsicles come in.
They are basically a frozen yogurt parfait on a stick! Mixed with some peach pie influence. Just enough to make them feel wrong but taste so right.
Just blend up some seasonal stone fruit with honey greek yogurt, a touch of cinnamon, and a touch of sugar (though this can be adjusted according to taste and how sweet your fruit is!). Crush up some Weetabix with a bit of brown sugar, more cinnamon, and butter to hold it all together. Alternate layers in a popsicle mold and then FREEZE.
Followed by eating to your heart’s desire. But especially at breakfast..because we all deserve to start our day right.
In case you guys haven’t heard of Weetabix, no sweat! I only recently learned about their awesomeness. Picture a whole grain cereal that comes in the shape of biscuits, but eats like oatmeal.
It’s almost like you get two breakfasts in one.
Made with 365 whole grain kernels PER BISCUIT and 32 grams of whole grains per serving, this is a cereal you can feel good about eating (and good about serving to your kids!). Plus, the ingredient list is laughably short, consisting of only FOUR INGREDIENTS – whole wheat, barley malt extract, cane sugar, and salt. You can eat it straight up with milk, make popsicles like I did here, sprinkle it over ice cream or other creamy desserts, or even incorporate it into dinner! The sky really is the limit…especially if you’ve had breakfast first.
- 2 large peaches, pitted
- 2 pluots, pitted
- ½ cup honey Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 4 Weetabix biscuits
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Cut the peaches and pluots into slice and place in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Add the Greek yogurt, sugar, and cinnamon and pulse until totally pureed. Set aside.
- For the streusel, break up the Weetabix biscuits into a medium bowl. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter. Mix until totally combined.
- Fill the popsicle molds halfway with the peach pluot yogurt mixture. Add a layer of streusel, followed by a second layer of peach pluot yogurt mix. Top off with streusel.
- Add the popsicle sticks so that they are inserted about ¾ of the way into the mold. Put in the freezer and let chill until frozen.

And popsicles for breakfast should now be a thing!!
I grew up on Weetabix – but the boring kind with milk and sugar.
These popsicles totally gave the cereal a makeover, loving it!
Popsicles for breakfast should be the new food trend.
I am almost ashamed of how little I have made frozen treats this summer. I need to get a move on and make some more.
It’s really the streusel that had me in these. Peaches can be scary for me. They are either so juicy and bursting with peachy flavor that they make you weak in the knees or they are dry and furry and utterly tasteless. The best ones I had all summer were when I was down in the Keys for 4th of July. If I can scare a few more up this is the first thing I’ll be making.
You made a breakfast popsicle!!!! I love it.
Love this. Peaches, pluots, everyone’s invited to the party! And weetabix is one of those cereals that I can’t get enough of and people think I’m weird for it. Oh well, I can’t help it.
I love that I am seeing more pluots around! love these pops, Joanne!!! the perfect way to end summer! and will definitely check out the Weetabix biscuits!
I have definitely not heard of Weetabix. :p Do the popsicles not fall apart with the layering?
These are so creative — I love them! I must admit that I’ve never been a fan of breakfast, but my husband has taken to making us pancakes on Sunday mornings in new and crazy combinations . . . so I’m being converted!
Breakfast popsicles are a genius idea!! SO perfect for a hot summer’s morning.
Popsicles for breakfast is a great thing!
OMG yessss! Breakfast Popsicles, this needs to happen in my life!!!
A parfait in a popsicle??? …that I can eat for breakfast????
Pinch me – I think I’m reading your blog in my sleep!
Streusel in popsicles?! Um, yes times ten!
How clever and creative! These look like a perfect breakfast on the go!
Such a lovely breakfast! Even the most finicky of eaters would love this!
I almost grabbed some pluots at the market the other day. Now I wish I would have because these popsicles are great! The idea to turn a parfait into a popsicle is pure genius.
I’m always thinking about breakfast … even if it’s just a bowl of oatmeal, but these would be so much better. Such a fun breakfast!
What a fun and tasty breakfast treat! My kids would love these!!!
Ahhh … popsicles for breakfast? I just love you!!
The best part is that you included Weetabix .. oh my goodness, this is genius!!
I am so hanging for summer to make popsicles – I have seen so many great ideas this winter (your summer) and these look fab – Joanne – love the streusel addition.
They are so gosh-darned gorgeous, Joanne and I love the alliterative name 🙂 I’m going to try to find some of the breakfast biscuits! This is such a great way to make popsicles.
Popsicle’s for breakfast sounds heavenly in this heat.
Peaches and pluots – perfect! Love homemade popsicles! Pinned!
I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog this evening! This recipe looks fantastic! And I can totally relate with juggling the real job thing and constantly thinking about what I want to make next for my blog.
I can definitely get behind popsicles for breakfast especially with peaches and pluots. Weetabix is my dad’s favorite cereal and I love that you used them for the streusel – so creative and delicious!
Whoa! Popsicles for breakfast? Why not? Peaches and pluots are just YUM! What a genius idea of adding Weetabix cereal, Joanne!! Lovely share! 🙂
What a fabulous way to keep cool in the summer!
weetabix! what a surprising and delightful addition! still haven’t tasted a pluot, but that doesn’t stop me from being enamored with these!
What a delicious idea for breakfast! who doesn’t like popsicles? Thanks for introducing the Weetabix biscuits, I would like to try them as a snack at work. Have a great day Joanne!
Oh yes the perfect way to have both smoothy and Weetabix,. You are a genius!
I love smoothies for breakfast so this seems like a natural step!
Oh yeah this is perfect for breakfast and grab-and-go! Love it! 🙂
I could totally devour these in no time. One of my favorite things ever to eat over the summer. The flavors are superb here! So refreshing.
I used to eat weetabix for breakfast every morning, but never like this!
Ok, officially filed under the “very very good idea category” in my brain. Need to make this STAT 🙂
I bought 3 pounds of pluots yesterday because they were on sale, and I had no clue what to do with all my loot. These parfait popsicles look like the perfect way to use up those beautiful fruits!
haven’t had weetbix for ages – love it with peanut butter smeared over it but your mouth glues up – interesting to put it in popsicles – am afraid it would be too soggy – but I do love these sort of yoghurt and berry iced treats – made some this week to save some yoghurt from getting too old
