Anyone who thinks popsicles are just for kids is sadly mistaken. The summer treat is the perfect way to cool down on hot summer days—and, surprisingly, it's also a great way to start any day. Yes, you read that correctly: Breakfast popsicles are a thing.

When you wake up to the same bowl of oatmeal, smoothie, or even cup of coffee every day, things can get a little boring. Cue in breakfast popsicles, which instantly make your go-to breakfasts much more exciting. There's parfait-style popsicles with yogurt, fruit, and granola, steel-cut oatmeal popsicles, chia seed pudding popsicles, and even cold brew popsicles. With all the different options, you could make a new batch of breakfast popsicles every week.

No matter how you like to start your day, there's something for everyone. And these are the best breakfast popsicles to start with.
