Frozen Breakfast Smoothie

Makes 6 frozen pops

The fibre from the fruit and rolled oats combined with the coconut oil in this smoothie will keep you feeling full all morning, carrying you through to lunchtime or beyond. As a frozen treat, it makes a fast, healthy snack—perfect morning, noon or night as a grab-and-go option kids can easily get for themselves.

1 cup chilled pure coconut water
1 cup vanilla-flavoured Greek-style yogurt
1 cup frozen mango chunks
2 tbsp grated orange rind
2 oranges, separated into segments, seeds removed
1 tbsp large-flake rolled oats
1 to 3 tbsp softened coconut oil

1. In a blender, combine coconut water, yogurt, mango, orange rind, orange segments, rolled oats and oil. Secure lid and blend until smooth. Spoon into frozen pop containers and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. 

Frozen mango chunks make this smoothie or frozen pop very thick, but you can use fresh mango, if desired. Try 1 cup frozen berries in place of the mango. You can substitute instant oats for the large-flake rolled oats.

If you’re new to using coconut oil, you may wish to start with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and gradually increase to 2 tablespoons over time.

I’ve flavored the marshmallow with rose water and used an almond cookie for the base, but there are many variations you could try, including those I’ve...
