The weather has been pretty hot around here, which means you’ll find me staying cool indoors. To be honest, I haven’t been to the pool a single day this summer. As a gal who was a lifeguard for 4 years in a row, not having to be at the pool everyday is quite a relief. Quitting that job for one that pays double and is located indoors was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Although I haven’t been outdoors much lately, I’ve still been sweating and working my butt off. My mom and I are in the middle of giving my bedroom a much-needed makeover. Who knew that taping everything off, giving the walls two coats, and taping off and painting the baseboards could be so much work.
To cool off yesterday after we painting, I made some of these honey raspberry parfait pops. I recently received a Zoku popsicle machine and have been using it just about every other day. The popsicles are easy to make and they have a Zoku recipe book to give you ideas.
These parfait pops are perfect for a snack or breakfast since they’re made with healthy ingredients – yogurt, fresh raspberries, and granola. Imagine the smiles on your kid’s faces if you were to say they can have a popsicle for breakfast! Trust me, make these yummy parfait pops for your kids (and yourself!) and you may just get a Mom of the Year award.

What is your favorite popsicle recipe to make?
- 6 oz. Chobani Honey Blended yogurt (or soy yogurt)
- ¼ c. unsweetened almond or soy milk
- 1 tbsp. french vanilla coffee creamer (omit if vegan)
- ¾ c. fresh raspberries
- 2 tbsp. water
- 1 tsp. honey (if vegan, omit or use maple syrup)
- ¼ c. honey almond granola
- Add yogurt, almond milk, and coffee creamer to a tall easy-pour cup and stir until combined. In a food processor or magic bullet, combine raspberries, water, and honey and blend until smooth.
- Once your Zoku has been frozen for 24 hours you are ready to create! Pour some of your white liquid into the bottom and allow a few minutes to freeze. Then, add a red layer on top and allow to freeze. Add a layer of granola and allow to freeze.
- Finally, add a thin layer of white liquid and sprinkle granola on top to create a "skirt" around the bottom of your popsicle. Allow to freeze completely before removing pops with the Zoku super tool.
