1 Strawberry parfait popsicles

I love these bright strawberry parfait popsicles because they are incredibly delicious and because they are super easy to make at home. I choose strawberry but you can choose blueberries, strawberries, you name it. Opt for low-fat Greek yogurt to cut calories, if you are looking to shed pounds or trying to keep your weight off.

2 Sangria popsicles

Sangria popsicles are not for your little ones, but they may be healthy for you. After all, what can be more amazing than turning one of your favorite summer drinks into the refreshing and tasty popsicles? September is going to be warm so it is definitely worth keeping some homemade sangria popsicles in your fridge.

3 Kiwi vanilla yogurt popsicles

Kiwi and yogurt (it does not matter whether you use a regular yogurt or a Greek yogurt) is an ideal food combination for popsicles. Add some vanilla and you have got a yummy treat to enjoy during the break.

4 Chocolate banana popsicles

Crave chocolate? Have trouble fighting sugar cravings? I have one simple, but most importantly, healthy solution for you. Chocolate banana popsicles make a great low-calorie dessert that will quickly satisfy your sweet tooth, boost your brain function and increase your energy levels.
