Then I realize, who am I kidding? I’d be flat in my bed with palpitations if I tried that. That’s a grande Mocha for me and a Caramel Hot Chocolate for a friend.
Experimented with breakfast Popsicles today! Whole point behind trying this was that I don’t feel like having breakfast these days – my stomach doesn’t want food, I have to eat in order to take my tablets, and of course I want coffee or chai in the morning! Also, it’s a good change from your typical breakfast, no?
So, how about a cool breakfast Popsicles on a hot summer morning? Sounds perfect to me! Think about it, if you can have overnight oats, why can’t you have your coffee and breakfast in the form of a Popsicle? :)
(It’s all good… Except, I ended up using dairy instead of a nut milk. Let’s see how my stomach takes that!)
List of things you’d need:
- Rolled oats (GF free)
- Peanut butter (Natural please)
- Organic dark cocoa
- Good quality coffee or instant coffee (whatever!)
- Honey or Coconut sugar (low GI) – I usually don’t need my food too sweet so I just use sugar sparingly. You can always adjust.
- Chia seeds
- Milk or Nut milk
First layer – Peanut butter and oats + milk. Keep it chunky
Second layer – Organic dark chocolate + coffee + honey
Third layer – Chia seeds + milk. Let it sit for a while till it plumps up before using. This layer will sink right to the bottom.
Add layers into a Popsicle mold and freeze for approximately 4-6 hours. Enjoy :)
