California summers are known to be hot, and nothing sounds better than ice cream on a hot day…unless you’re trying to shrink the waistline! A scoop of ice cream can pack as many as 600 calories, but this sweet treat will be kind to both your waistline and taste buds!

These were originally made for the fourth of July, but they are just as delicious a few weeks later. You can substitute the ingredients for your favorite berries, or even combine all of the berry flavors (for a two layer pop). These treats are less than 100 calories a Popsicle, and made with all natural stevia and the natural sugar from the berries.
