Cut the tops off of 4 oranges and hollow out the insides. Remove any seeds and combine fruit in a blender including the juice. Blend. Set the rinds in a muffin tin and fill with mixture. Drop a cherry or other berries inside the orange. Fill with the mixture from the blender. Freeze for 2 or 3 hours. Soften for 5 minutes before serving
Using paper cups, fill cups about 3/4 of the way and freeze until slushy. You can do this with an ice cube tray instead of paper cups too.
Peel bananas. Cut in half, widthwise and push a popsicle stick through one end. Spread peanut butter on bananas, roll in nuts or cereal. Wrap in waxed paper and freeze for 3 hours.
Cut up fruit and spread on a tray with wax paper. Freeze the fruit first and then take out and pack into a sealed container and return to freezer. Enjoy fruit once frozen.
Add honey and a splash of vanilla to some greek yogurt and mix together. Dip strawberries, blueberries, grapes or other fruit in the mixture. Place dipped fruit on a tray and place in the freezer. Freeze for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
