To satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, we’ve put together a list of healthy and tasty summer treats. All are super easy to make so the kids can get involved with both the making and eating!

Sip – What’s better than an ice cold slushy on a hot summer’s day? These Watermelon and Lemonade Slushies use only two ingredients (can you guess what they are?) and are super hydrating.
Munch – Frozen yogurt is a great alternative to ice cream, as it is considerably lower in fat and sugar. Froyo Berry Bites are perfect for a cool snack or even as an on-the-go breakfast!
POP – Banana and Chocolate Pops are so simple and easy, you’ll wonder why you never came up with them yourself! They’re also perfect for tricking any fussy eaters into eating one of their five-a-day.
Bite – For a little indulgence, why not try these Banana and Chocolate Ice Cream Bites? Despite the name, they contain no ice cream at all. However, the taste and texture of these treats are enough to fool anyone!
