Healthy Snacks: Frozen Treats

Cool off the kids from the inside out with delicious low-fat frozen treats.




It's Cool to be Healthy

Ice cream is a classic cooler, but it comes loaded with fat and sugar.

If you 'd rather offer your family lighter and healthier alternatives, we have a freezer full of cool ideas for refreshing homemade sorbets, low-fat frozen yogurt, and good old-fashioned ice pops.

    one of the greatest treats that is not only healthy but great for you and your family is plain fruit in its self! we forget that fruit is naturally sweet and is a great treat. you could mix it together or freez it even..with out anything else. your taste buds are used to eating sugar and adding sugar or some thing else...try it for a while, you will not only get use to it, as we are creature of habit, but you will love it and would'nt like all those treats made with so much sugar and all else that your body does not like! so go ahead and enjoy the wonderful fruits that summer has to offer by nature...if you like you could add some natural yogurt to it perhaps...or even blend it together.

    We have tryed some of the recipies for the ice pops and they are great. My daughter also tryed some she found made with kool ade and jello. The unsweetened koolage and the lite jello is great. Also for a summer treat my grandson loves froZen grapes. We freeze them in single serving containers and when he wants a treat we just give him the container. Its great and no muss..

    Excellent! Try regular yogurt, blueberry jam, sliced kiwi, and of course, the cherry on top. It tastes heavenly. Plus, I'm 12 years old. If I like it, your children will like it.

    does anyone have a recipe for vanilla frozen yogurt that has the milk, egg base as homemade ice cream does instead of greek yogurt or non fat yogurt?
