Suitable for vegans and everyone else.

 

 

 

 

These vegan popsicles are great to eat for breakfast in the summer, when it’s too hot to eat warm breakfast foods.

 

 

Gather...

 
  • 1/2 plus 1/2 cups of organic alternative milk. I used vanilla soy.
  • 1/4 cup quick cook organic oats.
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
  • 1/4 tablespoon ground flax seed.
  • 1 cup fresh organic blueberries. Set 1/4 cup aside, you’ll only add 3/4 cup to the blender.
  • 2 tablespoons organic agave or honey.
 
*NOTE: you can use steel cut oats, if you like, but you’ll need to cook them about 20 minutes longer. Cook according to the directions on your oatmeal package.
 
This recipe should make around four to five 3 ounce eco-pops.
 

Make your oatmeal

 
  1. Heat 1/2 cup of milk slowly, on the stove top, until it reaches a slow boil.
  2. Mix the oats into the boiling milk, turn the heat down to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix your vanilla and ground flax into the oatmeal.
 

Make your blueberry mixture

 
Allow the oatmeal to cool and while it does, do the following...
  1. Combine cooled oatmeal with the other 1/2 cup of milk, your sweetener and 3/4 cup of blueberries.
  2. Blend until well mixed.
  3. Taste your mixture. I only added 2 tablespoons of sweetener because my blueberries were very sweet. You may want to add more agave or honey depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal though.
 

Assemble your pops

 
  1. Divide the remaining 1/4 cup of blueberries among your ice pop molds.
  2. Pour the blueberry mixture into the molds, over the blueberries.
  3. Freeze overnight.
  4. Take your blueberry pops out of the freezer in the morning for a quick cold breakfast.
 
*SAFETY NOTE: If making these for a young child, you may want to consider omitting the whole blueberries due to choking hazards.
 
This recipe is very flexible. You can use soy yogurt instead of milk if you like and use a different fruit instead of blueberries. I've also used pears and apples, with some cinnamon added. But you can also try peaches, bananas, berries or what have you. You can also mix in extra flax, wheat germ or ground almonds.
