Good ideas. Report
I want to try the soft serve banana. Report
I love these Frozen & Frig Desserts, sounds wonderful. I saved all them for later use. I can't wait. I will make one tonight. Report
I saved to my recipes to try later:
*Fudgy Banana Pudding Pops
*Simple Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake
*Tropical Shake
*Mixed Berry Sorbet
*Soft-Serve Banana

I will not use Splenda which is a chlorocarbon toxin (nor any other poison like sugar free jello/pudding, nor aspartame). Instead I'll use Just Like Sugar, and make other similar wise & healthy substitutions. Thanks for these recipes!

Other summer dessert recipes I've saved to my recipes and will make the necessary adjustments with are:
*Summer Frozen Fruit Bars
*100 Calorie Peach Ice Cream
*Frozen Pudding Pops
*Berry Banana Frozen Treat
*Frozen Cheesecake Tarts

*Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches
*Frozen Fruit Dessert
*No Bake Graham Cracker Cheesycake
*Frozen Chocolate Cheesecake Bites
*Frozen Chocolate Banana Pops Report
Wow! Do I need this! I'm still trying to give up my Ben & Jerry's. Report
Some of these look interesting, but many are made with very non-nutritious ingredients. If I were trying to be truly healthy, I'd skip most of these and choose smoothies or sorbets made with whole foods (real foods, not manufactured and/or artificial). Report
Thanks, for the great ideas. Report
I will be trying most of these. My grandkids are coming out to visit for a month and I am always looking for good healthy treats for them to have while they are here. Thanks! :) Report
I will be trying almost all of them. My Granddaughter will love helping to make. She can take home what is left. Thanks Report
A lot of good ideas and many look yummy. Could not help but notice a number of recipes called for 1% or greater milk. Would think switching to skim would reduce the calories. Also another way to increase nutritional value in some recipes would be to have frozen milk cubes made up and use them instead of ice cubes. Report
Guilt Free Fried Ice Cream. but I will have to find an alternative ingredient...may have to use cornflakes instead. Report
Strawberries and watermelon are my favorites as well.....or just a good fruit salad. Report
I am going to try the Mixed Berry Sorbet. I am a berry fan. Report
I am Hypoglycemic so can't have any sweets after a meal. However I do have a few Almonds as my treat when others are having desert, and this is GREAT! Report
The soft serve banana is a new favorite here! I mixed it with strawberries. We added a little bit of chocolate syrup on top. It tasted just like a banana split!!!! Report
The fried ice cream sounds awesome. Report
Thank you!!!!!! Report
Good idea, Medicinesqaw! We are going camping this weekend and I think we might try the ziploc ice-cream. sounds fun and delicious!!!!! Report
I love the Soft Serve Banana and the Banana Pops. Report
That mixed berry sorbet sounds nice, except that knowing what I do about food science, it would be a brick, not a scoopable dessert, if you don't use any sugar or make it with an ice cream maker.

But ohhhh, those banana pudding pops are just calling to me. Banana+Chocolate=HAPPY ME! Report
I really want to try to the frozen banana thing. sounds so good! I love to mircowave bananas. (I know, I'm weird, lol) Report
The Ice Cream in a Bag will be great for camping or for family reunions! Make everybody work off their dessert before they eat it! Report
These sound good! Can't wait to try one! Report
I don't like bananas in a dessert, as I got sick once on a (what's that called when you have 3 scoops ice cream with bananas along each side?)
also i try to never eat sugar free foods, i have heard they are very bad for a person,
so i never eat dessert, don't feel i need them Report
I'm not a big fan of bananas in desserts. I will probably just stick with my regular treat of going to baskin robbin twice a month. I don't really "need" or "crave" dessert food, but I do make a killer pina colada and I'm not telling how many calories it has! Report
Love this run-down of summer desserts! I've done the banana soft-serve and love it. I'm excited to try both the berry sorbet and the sugar-free ice cream in a bag - what a clever idea! Report
I'm on a serious ice cream kick right now, since I discovered this ice cream shop called Sebastian and Joe's in the Twin Cities on my recent vacation. Now I crave ice cream. I've gotten started and can't stop! Report
many of them look like winners! Report
I will be trying the Sugar Free Ice Cream in a bag. Report
The soft serve banana does sound good. I also like frozen grapes..they are a healthy alternative to popsicles. Report
They all sound really great. I've saved them to my recipes and can't wait to get started trying them all. Only problem...which one first?! LOL Report
Fudgy Banana Pops sound good, but until I'm down at my goal weight, I'm avoiding carbs, since I can't seem to stop with "just one." Report
Soft-serve banana "ice cream" has changed my life. It is so fabulous and can be changed around so many different ways. I even wrote a blog about my love :
I'm not a dessert lover at all, but these recipes sound delicous! The fried ice cream is one I can't wait to try. Report
THANK YOU SO MUCH !!! On the weekends especially Sundays the cravings come out I think these recipes will need to be made each weekend in the summer and it could just take me most of the summer to go through each of them!!! What a wonderful help this is to the journey ! Report
I plan to try several, but first fudgy banana pops. Report
The ones we might give a go this summer will be the tropical shake, simple chocolate covered strawberry shake, and the creamsicle dessert. Actually I am saving this blog to SparkFavorites so my son can review the recipes with me. This summer I am having him help create at least 1 full meal each week. This way he is doing hands on learning of a lot of different skills he learned in school with a practical purpose. Plus it will boost his self esteem and be a big contribution to the family list of chores.
Thanks for the gathering of recipes it makes it so much easier than doing a big search through the Spark Recipe database (which I am oh, so happy with and grateful for). Report
I might have to try that Red white and Blue Berry Parfait - sounds yummy! Report
Think that I'll be trying a few of these:) Report
yum! I love grilled fruit in the summer. These recipes look delicious...looks like I'll have to try making my own sorbet soon. Report
Some great ideas. I also like my homemade Peach Sorbet (posted on Spark Recipes). Fresh fruits are a fave at our house, too! Report
My favorite summer desserts under 150cal: fresh strawberries or watermelon. . . Report
Great ideas. Thanks. Report
