Believe it or not, you only need one ingredient to make rich and creamy mock ice cream. Cut ripe bananas into coins and place them in a resalable bag in your freezer. When they’ve frozen solid, purée them in a food processor until they reach ice cream consistency. Don’t be nervous when the purée starts to look lumpy: Keep pulsing the mixture and in just a few seconds more you’ll have a luscious banana “ice cream.”

Blueberry Yogurt Ice Pops

Ice Pops

These gorgeous ice pops get their tie-dyed appearance from alternating layers of creamy Greek yogurt and a simple, scratch-made blueberry sauce. It will be hard to eat just one of these sweet and creamy pops, so make a double batch!

Fat-Free Key Lime Sorbet

The great thing about this tart and refreshing sorbet is that you don’t need an ice cream machine to make it. Just freeze the sorbet in a bowl, whisking it every hour for four hours until it’s smooth and creamy.

Grape and Banana Skewers with Chocolate Drizzle

It doesn’t get any easier than this: Thread banana slices and fresh grapes onto wooden skewers in an alternating pattern, drizzle with melted dark chocolate, and then freeze for two hours or more and you’ll have a healthy and delicious frozen treat.

Looking for a healthy snow cone alternative? Try whipping up a batch of this watermelon granita and then packing the icy treat into paper cones. Don’t like watermelon? Try substituting cantaloupe or honeydew melon instead.
