2 cups Greek yogurt
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup mixed berries
1/4 cup sliced almonds

3. Peach Iced Tea Popsicles

2 cups brewed herbal tea (peach-flavored works well)
1 ripe peach, sliced
Sweetener to taste (optional)
Fill popsicle molds with brewed tea, add slices of peach, and freeze until solid. These popsicles are a charming way to cool down on a hot day without added sugars.
