100 Degrees In The Shade {Frozen Treats}

I'm almost ready to run naked through this water at Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park and I assure you this will not be a pretty sight. LOL

As I started writing this post at 6:00PM, the temperature was a steamy 96° in Atlanta. It seems like a few weeks ago we were wishing for warmer weather, but now that it's here, some of us may be changing our minds. This little heat wave has me thinking about inhaling as much water and as many cool drinks and treats that I can stand, while trying to keep those options as healthy as possible. My afternoon snack today was a small bowl of sorbet, but I wanted to have other options on hand. I pulled out my popsicle molds, and started searching for great treats to make. There are so many to choose from, but here are a few that you may like. The good news is you don't need molds to make these easy treats, so if you don't have them, don't worry. Take a look at these frozen delights. Links to the recipes are listed in the credits below.

Frozen Banana Pops. Dipped in white or dark chocolate or slathered in peanut butter--totally up to you. Little ones may like them garnished with Cheerios.

Frozen Banana Bites {No equipment required}

Lemon Strawberry Yogurt Pops

Watermelon Popsicles {Simply pureed watermelon--no additives}

Pineapple Granita

I hope you'll give some of these treats a try or create your very own frozen concoction, but whatever you do, please remember to remain hydrated. What are some of your favorite frozen homemade treats?
