Rainbow Fruit + Veggie Pops

Combine a variety of fruit and blended vegetable juices to make your own flavorful ice pops packed with vitamins. Try different combinations for even more flavor, like carrot, orange, cherry and strawberry. Just pour the juices (1/2 cup each) into plastic ice-pop sleeves, squeeze out the air and place in the freezer upright.

Confetti Yogurt Bites

Serve up your family's favorite Greek yogurt in a new way the kids will love. Pour the yogurt into a large freezer bag, snip the corner and pipe 1/2-inch circles onto wax paper. Freeze the yogurt rounds, then peel them off the wax paper and store until you're ready to serve. Add confetti sprinkles to give it a more playful vibe.

Go-Go Bananas Sandwich

This grab-and-go treat is hard to resist, making it a fun dessert for your next outdoor gathering. Blend 4 bananas and 1 can of coconut cream, then pour the mixture into a brownie pan lined with wax paper. Fold in mini chocolate chips, freeze, then cut into squares. Place the mixture between graham cracker squares, and garnish with more chocolate chips on the sides for a guilt-free treat.

Watermelon Kiwi Coolers

To make these colorful treats, blend 4 cups of watermelon chunks with a splash of lime juice. Then pulse, strain and pour the mixture into small paper cups. Top each cup with a thick slice of kiwi. Place a popsicle stick through the center of the fruit, then freeze. Once frozen, simply remove the paper cup and serve.

Raspberry Coconut Jigglers

Kids love finger foods, especially fun, jiggly ones. Blend 1/2 cup of raspberries, 1/4 cup of coconut manna, 3 packets of monk fruit and water into your go-to gelatin recipe to give it a healthy spin.

Strawberry Banana Chia Pops

Everyone will love to chill out with this exotic and tasty chia seed concoction. Combine 3 cups of coconut milk, 2 bananas, 1 cup of strawberries, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a bit of honey in a blender. Add 1/4 cup of chia seeds, then chill the mixture overnight. The next day, pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until you're ready to eat.

Froyo Cubes

Combine 1 cup of crushed pineapple and 1 cup of mango in a bowl. Fill each square in a silicone ice-cube tray about 3/4 full with the mixed fruit, then top off each square with coconut milk. Freeze overnight, then devour.

Too-Cool Pineapple Whip Cooler

Put your own sophisticated spin on this classic treat by blending 3 cups of chopped pineapple, 2 cups of whipped topping, a splash of pineapple juice and shredded coconut (to taste). Once blended, place the mixture in a sandwich bag, snip off the end and pipe it into cups. Garnish with a cherry and a colorful straw.

Coconut Berry Ice Pops

Mix 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries with 2 tablespoons of orange marmalade, then add 1/2 cup of blueberries and 1/2 cup of shredded coconut. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds, and top off with refreshing coconut water. Freeze until you're ready to eat.

Frozen Fruit Sundae Cones

Spoon frozen mixed berries into small cones for a fun twist on the traditional ice-cream cone. Top with coconut whipped cream (1 can of coconut cream, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract) and a cherry for a hand-held sundae that's colorful and healthy!
