My kids love homemade ice pops, and I love knowing that the ones we make are good for them. We whip up a big batch with multiple flavors so they have many choices, but these patriotic red, white and blue ones are always a favorite! —Shannon Carino, Frisco, TX
Icy chunks of fruit add color and interest to this pretty pink alternative to ice cream. "My family and I love this dessert because it's not too sweet and it's so refreshing," explains Robyn Jessop of North Ogden, Utah.
"This fruity luscious dessert makes a wonderful ending to a special dinner," says Joyce Cooper of Mount Forest, Ontario. "When fresh strawberries are not available, I substitute frozen unsweetened berries, thawed and drained."
Our Test Kitchen came up with these icy sugar-free treats that take just three ingredients and a blender to make. Kids-and adults-will enjoy cooling off with the two-layer pops that are full of fruit flavor but not overly sweet.
I've yet to meet a cheesecake I didn't like! The flavors here of cream cheese and raspberries create an ideal combination. Although ice cream floats are summery, I like this treat so much that I whip it up during the winter, too. —Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri
