We’ve all had enough banana bread (or seen it in the making via #quarantinecooking grams) to satisfy us for the rest of the year. So move over banana bread, because it’s officially time to brush up on our summer dessert recipes. From frozen refreshments and guilt-free bites to no-bake treats and kid-friendly snacks, we’re sharing seven ways to fulfill your sweet tooth this summer. Keep reading for simple (and healthy-ish) warm-weather delights the whole family will enjoy.
Frozen Fruit + Toppings
Slice your favorite fruit (bananas, strawberries, blueberries, etc.) and place them on a cookie sheet. Then drizzle dark chocolate or peanut butter on top and place them in the freezer overnight. You can even have your children help decorate with sprinkles and other delicious toppings. We also love frozen grapes as a low-sugar and refreshing treat during the day.
Fancy Fruit Tray
Put your cheese board to good use and create a colorful fruit platter full of your family’s favorite fresh produce. Watermelon, grapes, orange slices, berries, you name it. Plus, it’ll make for a pretty photo opportunity.

Poosh Fruit Gummies
Use our Vital Proteins x Poosh Blueberry & Lemon Collagen Vibes to make collagen-packed gummies. Learn the step-by-step directions for the pineapple, blueberry, and lemon chews.
No-Bake Keto Protein Bars
Replace sugar-packed energy bars with this tasty and better-for-you recipe. The protein bars make for a good midday pick-me-up or late-night treat.
Dairy-Free Almond Butter Stuffed Dates
Made with vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free chocolate chips and almond butter, these poppable bites are actually full of health benefits. Find out the full recipe and details here. Try putting them in the freezer too for a summer spin on the dessert.
Once you buy the molds, all you have to do is puree the fruit flavor of your choice and pour it into the mold and freeze overnight. You can add in yogurt for a creamier pop, honey to add sweetness, and chunks of fruit if you’d like.
