Fruit Pops: Move over fruit kabobs, these adorable FRUIT POPS from Bakers Royale are ready to steal the show! Not only are they pretty to look at, but they are healthy and super easy to make.

Fruit Punch Popsicles: I've never met a kid that doesn't enjoy cooling off with a cold popsicle on a hot summer day. These frozen Fruit Punch Popsicles will not disappoint! Packed with a serving of fruit per popsicle, they will please young and old alike at your next summer shindig! To make, combine 3 cups of sliced fruit into a large mixing bowl. Spoon the fruit mixture into 8 popsicle molds and then fill each mold with your choice of juice. Place a popsicle stick into each mold and freeze for at least 4 hours, until frozen solid.

Waffle Cone Fruit Cups: Okay, these fruit-filled cones may not produce that same reaction as they would if they were filled with ice cream BUT they will provide your guests with a healthy dessert option. Waffle Cone Fruit Cups are easy to serve, won't melt, and are sure to make one of the day's daily fruit servings a little bit sweeter!
