Skinny Frozen Treats to Beat the Summer Heat

Summer’s almost here – the season to keep cool with sweet frozen treats. Ice cream is divine, but not something I should be eating every time I feel the need. Fortunately, there are wonderfully flavourful sorbets, granitas and popsicles out there, including delicious frozen fruits, juices and even a rick dairy-free chocolate sorbet that packs a ton of flavour with hardly any fat. Welcome, summer!
