Who isn't excited about the new Star Wars™ movie that will be hitting theaters in December?! I've been a fan of these movies since I was six and am so excited to share the experience of enjoying a brand new film together with my six year old twins.  To get them up to speed on all the characters and canon from past films, we devoted a weekend for a movie marathon viewing the original trilogy. Of course if you're going to be having a movie marathon you need something fun to snack on so we made an out-of-this-world treat to enjoy.

Cereal doesn't need to just be for breakfast! We combined General Mills Star Wars™ Darth Vader Cereal with Yoplait Star Wars™ Strawberry Smoothie Go-Gurt® to create futuristic looking popsicle treats.  Throw in some blue milk to drink along with it and you have a great snack that looks like it could have been served in a scene from a sci-fi movie.

We made a quick visit over to our local Walmart to pickup all the supplies we needed including Star Wars™ Darth Vader Cereal, Star Wars™ Go-Gurt®, popsicle molds, and wooden sticks so as my daughter would say making these treats ourselves was "easy peasy."  Not only did my kids really find these snacks to be a tasty treat but they had a blast helping out in the kitchen making them which was an activity that really enhanced our movie marathon experience.

 Here are some simple DIY instructions for these out-of-this-world snacks:

Cereal Freezes

The Cereal Freezes are a great mixture of the smooth strawberry taste of Yoplait Go-Gurt® blended with fruity flavored cereal and marshmallows from General Mills Star Wars™ Darth Vader Cereal to provide a crunchy texture.


1 Large Banana;
1 Cup of Yoplait StrawBerry Smoothie Go-Gurt®;
1/2 Cup of Milk;
1/2 Cup of General Mills Star Wars™ Darth Vader Cereal.


  • In a bowl mix up the banana until mashed and smooth;
  • Slowly add in the Go-Gurt® and milk to the ball.  Mix until blended with the banana mash;
  • Add Star Wars™ Darth Vader Cereal to the mixture.  Make sure to stir by hand at this point to avoid crushing the marshmallows and cereal;
  • Pour the mix into popsicle molds. Insert a wooden popsicle stick as a handle.  Freeze for 8 hours until solid;
  • Once frozen, place the popsicle molds under the kitchen faucet and  spray with warm water.  Gently pull the Cereal Freezes from their popsicle molds.

Blue Milk

Feel like a hero from Star Wars™ by enjoying some Blue Milk along with your Cereal Freeze.


1 Cup of Milk;
1/2 teaspoon of unsweetened blue fruit punch mix;
1/2 teaspoon of sugar.


  • Pour the milk into a tall glass and gently stir in the blue fruit punch mix;
  • The drink should initially be lightly tinted blue.  Add more of the fruit punch mix to get a darker color if you desire;
  • Add sugar to sweeten the taste.

Voila! There you have it some delicious and simple to make snacks that can provide some out-of-this-world flair for a party, family game night, or a movie watching marathon.  My kids really love this snack and I'm sure yours will too!

  1. That's a fun idea! We usually just stick to popcorn or maybe ice cream. Also I feel like all of your posts I've commented on recently have been Star Wars ones lol. :)

  2. Ha! It's cute - love that they look like light sabers. My boys wouldn't have been able to wait for pictures to start eating those popsicles up.

  3. Those looks like fingers! What a fun idea! My husband and daughter are counting the days to the midnight show.

  4. Those popsicles look delicious. And I think they could totally count as breakfast! #client

  5. This looks an awesomely cool idea. Would love to try this at home too!
