Strawberry oatmeal popsicles taste just like eating strawberry oatmeal, but frozen on a stick for a yummy treat!
It’s no surprise that we are on a popsicle kick in this house. Not only are they the boys’ snack of choice post nap and pre sprinkler run, they are Mom’s snack of choice while she sits in the hot sun. I’m pretty sure I should take note from the toddlers and run through the sprinkler too. While I’m all for the ease of a simple fruit popsicle [like my watermelon ice pops which are just watermelon and strawberries], I’ve found a heartier popsicle, like these strawberry oatmeal popsicles, keeps us fueled until dinnertime [and also makes a delicious smoothie if you do not have popsicle molds].
Packed with fiber from oats and protein from milk and Greek yogurt, it’s no wonder these strawberry oatmeal popsicles are more satisfying and filling than a popsicle only made with fruit. And if you’re chasing around small children most of your day like I am, you need something sweet and satiating to keep you energized. Lord knows they have enough energy on their own and really don’t need the extra boost from a popsicle. But I also need to admit I’ve been trying to get my boys to eat oatmeal since they were 8 months old and enjoying it in popsicle form seems to be their preference. Do you blame them?!
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- 1 cup 2% milk
- ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 4 popsicle molds [I used these]
- Add ingredients to high-speed blender. Pulse until smooth.
- Fill popsicles molds and freeze for at least 4 hours before enjoying.
