11 Healthy Paletas Recipes That Are Nutritious Enough for Breakfast

Breakfast is my favorite meal. I think a lot of people share my affinity. I go crazy for the pancakes, the omelets, the pastries. Then there’s oatmeal, egg bake, frittata, huevos rancheros (my favorite!), and finally, the classic: cereal and milk. I am an adult, esposa, and mama of three, and sometimes it’s a cup of granola that hits the spot in the AM. It could be that my body is hungry (we literally “break the fast” of nighttime) or maybe the food really is that much better in the morning. Whichever the reason, I heart breakfast all the way.

Recently, I came across a whole new way to start the day: breakfast paletas/breakfast popsicles. I know, right? These frozen foods can be healthy and filled with quality food items—frutas! chia seeds! yogurt!—which will start your day off right. And did you notice? They are beautiful. They are frozen, edible art, in my opinion. So come along and check out these delicious recipes for breakfast paletas that are healthy enough to kick your day off with.
