A lot of individually-portioned "ice cream snacks" can be reasonable choices for a treat. Fudge pops are only about 60 calories... ice cream bars about 150... "fruit bars" and freezies (depending on brand and size) are also not too bad. I am happy to budget up to 150 calories towards an ice cream snack.

pureed frozen bananas are a great substitute for ice cream!
I also go for the occasional kid size Rita's Italian Ice.

Frozen berries, especially blueberries. With or without a bit of liquid whipping cream (freezes on them like icecream).
Make your own 'smoothie' pops (in popsicle containers) containing all kinds of good ingredients to have on hand. There's lots of recipes out there - or just use a smoothie recipe, and fill the containers. I used to do this often, when I made smoothies - because I always ended up making too much to drink in one sitting.

I like fruit as a snack too! I especially like to freeze some of it and eat it like that. Grapes are so yummy frozen.

What's your favorite warm weather treats guys? What's that one, nice cold thing that you like to consume when the temps hit 80+ degrees? Do you grab a sinfully good treat like a milkshake or a sundae? Or do you keep it healthy with something lighter, yet still sweet?
I admit, I just had a caramel malt last night and it was super yummy...but at over 300 calories I'll not be having one too often. Boy was it yummy though!
I'd really like to have some ideas for some not so bad for you treats that just hit the spot in warm weather. They can be store bought, from a fast food place (I know McDonald's kiddy cone isn't too bad when it comes to calories) or even made from home (though the more easy it is, the more loved).
