Frozen Sundae Pie
This Frozen Sundae Pie can be assembled beforehand without the bananas, then put them on top right before serving. I also use different types of ice cream from time to time. It's like a banana split in a pie.

Strawberry Sorbet Sensation
When the "dog days" of summer dog you, why not make this refreshing frozen dessert? Strawberry Sorbet Sensation is not only "showy," but simple to make with just five ingredients. And at only 153 calories per serving, it's guilt-free, too.

Maple Mocha Pops
"One is just not enough," my husband says of these creamy Maple Mocha Pops. They're a breeze to make, and kids love them, too. You might also freeze in pretty serving cups and top with whipped cream for a grownups' "frappaccino" presentation.

More Frozen Dessert Ideas:
- For a refreshing summer treat, push a Popsicle stick through the foil cover of a small fat-free yogurt. (Be sure to remove the plastic lid first if there is one.) Pop it in the freezer until it's frozen, then remove the plastic container and enjoy your frosty fruit pop!

- Create a quick frozen dessert using leftover cookies, angel food cake, pound cake or brownies. Crumble them up in a pie pan and spoon vanilla ice cream on top. Spread on a thin layer of strawberry jam and cover that with chocolate and butterscotch ice cream topping. Freeze it until it's time for dessert.
—Karen G., Somerset, Kentucky
- Ice cream floats can be an easy and fun make-ahead dessert for a large crowd. Prior to the event, place two scoops of vanilla ice cream into 8-ounce clear plastic drink cups. Set them on cookie sheets, cover with plastic wrap and freeze. At dessert time, pour root beer or orange soda over the ice cream and serve with straws and spoons. Kids of all ages enjoy this treat!
—Shari L., Bellingham, Washington
- For a fun dessert sure to impress guests, I roll individually frozen balls of ice cream in fun toppings like chopped nuts, toasted coconut or chopped candy bars. Then I freeze the balls until firm and arrange in a pretty serving bowl. Guests can choose whichever combination appeals to them.
