Grab a spoon. With these guilt-free desserts, the only thing you’ll have to worry about is staving off brain freeze.

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
Greek yogurt plus a boatload of fresh strawberries are the basis of this homemade fro-yo, which is perked up by lemon (both the zest and juice) and a splash of rum.

Fruit Pops
Mangoes and strawberries give these ice pops their stripey good looks and deliciously fruit-forward flavor.

Watermelon Slushies
Bringing back this childhood staple is a cinch. Start by pureeing seedless watermelon in a blender and then freeze overnight. Let it thaw a little the next day before mashing with a fork.

Mango Strawberry Snow Cones
A food processor and 10 minutes are all it takes to create this carnival-worthy concoction. Blend crushed ice with mangoes and strawberries and then add a squeeze of lime for a sweet-tart finish. (Bonus points for no added sugar!)

Chocolate Covered Banana Pops
Chocolate-covered anything is good. Just ask these bananas, which are dunked in melted dark chocolate and doused with protein-packed chopped peanuts.

Orange Sherbet
You won’t find any artificial coloring here. Just freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice blended with sugar, vanilla, milk and a little bit of salt.

Almost-Famous Frozen Yogurt
Store-bought fro-yo is often loaded with sugar and what-does-that-even-mean? ingredients. Keep things simple (and tasty) with this homemade goodness.

Greek Yogurt Fudge Pops
Is there anything Greek yogurt can’t make tasty? In this recipe, the protein-packed superfood joins forces with chocolate chips, cocoa powder, milk, sugar and vanilla to create a homemade fudge pop.

Broiled Banana Splits
Here, this diner favorite gets a healthy makeover: The bananas are sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and then broiled in the oven before being topped with a scoop of frozen yogurt, toasted almond slivers, chocolate shavings and fruit.
