Tuulia Talvio and Vaneljablogger Virpi Mikkonen, co-authors of N’Ice Cream, believe ice cream is a reasonable breakfast—especially in the form of these yogurt popsicles. Layers of coconut milk yogurt, homemade granola, and fresh fruit make up this vegan breakfast that’s like a yogurt parfait, yet free of dairy and refined sugar. Mikkonen and Talvio suggest adding berries, but any in-season fruit will work (pineapple chunks serve up a piña colada-flavored pop). You’ll surely win the “cool parent” award when your kids pull these portable frozen yogurt pops out of the freezer and eat them on the go. Note: Allow 4 to 6 hours for the popsicles to set in the freezer.Breakfast PopsExcerpted from N'Ice Cream by arrangement with Avery Books, members of Penguin Group (USA) LLC, A Penguin Random House Company.
