Shakeology Breakfast Pops

Have you ever considered eating a popsicle as part of breakfast? If you’ve lived in Los Angeles in September, you most certainly have. Whether it’s 100° F when you wake up or the idea of a breakfast popsicle just sounds brilliant, this Breakfast Pops recipe really hits the spot.

But eating clean and eating popsicles for breakfast? Hmm. We know. It sounds weird. Making a commitment to clean eating and a healthy lifestyle might make it feel like there are fewer opportunities to treat yourself. This just isn’t so. One spin through our recipe archives will prove that you can eat clean and still have those “treat yourself” moments. Case in point, this healthy breakfast popsicle. This recipe combines the goodness of Shakeology, crunchy whole grain cereal, and fresh fruit for a pretty well-rounded morning snack!

Perhaps the best thing about these breakfast pops, aside from how delicious they are, is their obvious convenience factor. If you are like most of us, having a grab-and-go breakfast option hanging out in the freezer is clutch. So when you are running late and have just moments to spare, reach for a yummy Breakfast Popsicle to hold you over until you can grab a more substantial breakfast. Your tummy will thank you.
