Nothing is better on a hot day than a bowl ice cream to cool you off.

Well here is a quick and healthy option instead of that bowl of ice cream.

Change the strawberries out for some blueberries for another option.

For the non-dairy readers, a quick change to a soy yogurt and this would be a great ice cream alternative.

Strawberry-Banana Smoothie Pops 

Yield : 6 (4-ounce) pops


2 cups frozen strawberries

1 medium banana

1 cup low-fat strawberry yogurt 

1/2 cup cranberry juice cocktail 

1 tablespoon honey


Place strawberries, banana, yogurt, juice and honey in a blender and blend until smooth. Divide among six 4-ounce freezer-pop molds. Freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.

No thanks, when I want to cool off, I want a large Chocolate soda at Toft's.


Whatever you do don't eat the Great Value ice cream sandwiches being sold at Wal Mart. They don't melt! Even after 12 hours in the sun!
