I’m sure we’ve all have those mornings where it’s a miracle you even make it out the door on time. And if you’re anything like me, those kinds of mornings usually don’t involve breakfast of any kind, because there simply isn’t enough time! But hopefully today’s post will convince you that even on your busiest mornings, there’s still time for breakfast! All you need is a few simple ingredients and a freezer!
The concept of frozen breakfast pops may sounds strange, but it’s a simple way to turn a sit-down breakfast into a get-up-and-go breakfast. You can grab a frozen treat on a stick on the way out the door, and still get the nutritional boost you need to get you through the day. Not only are they healthy and convenient, but there are a lot of different kinds you can make to keep things interesting! Here are a few of our favorites…
