If you’re a little tired of the same snacks over and over again, try giving them a makeover, which is as easy as throwing them in the freezer. That’s right. Some foods taste even better when they’re frozen. Here are 30 to satisfy any craving.

Please note, however, some of these snacks are not Skinny Mom-approved and should only be eaten in moderation and on occasion. For some diet-friendly snacks, click here.

1. Bananas

Peel, freeze and enjoy! These make for a great creamy snack, and are also perfect for homemade, healthy ice cream.

If you’re going to freeze fruit, try grapes. Once you try them, you’ll never go back to the regular refrigerated kind.

3. Gummy bears

Whether you choose the sugar-free option or not, these chewy guys taste great cold.

4. Chocolate pudding

Remember eating Jell-O Pudding Pops? That’s what you’ll get if you freeze pudding cups.

5. Avocado slices

Freeze for a few hours then sprinkle with chili powder and salt — refreshing and healthy.

6. Iceberg lettuce wedges

Cut your lettuce head into wedges, freeze for three to four hours and then dip in this Light Bleu Cheese or Light Buttermilk Ranch Dressing.

7. Mango

Cut into cubes, freeze and then store in baggies. Enjoy them straight or with a drizzle of lime juice.

8. York Peppermint Patties

Eating one of these little frozen treats is like a dessert breath mint.

9. Watermelon wedges

Chowing down on frozen watermelon is a great way to get your kids to eat healthy. You can also incorporate watermelon into tons of other summer recipes.

10. Milano cookies

Freeze and serve. We recommend dipping them into coffee after dinner.

11. Orange wedges

Freezing oranges will give you a cold burst of yummy and healthy flavor.

12. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

There isn’t anything better than chocolate and peanut butter — that is until you try them frozen.

13. Brownie squares

This doesn’t have to be an unhealthy option if you freeze these Skinny Fudge Brownies.

14. Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies

You may already have some tucked away in your freezer for off-season snacking, but instead of thawing them out, try them cold.

15. Grape fruit wedges

Freeze these for an afternoon snack that will cool you down and keep you healthy.

16. Yogurt

Pick your favorite yogurt, put in a popsicle stick and let it freeze. Remove the cup and enjoy.

17. Melon cubes

Cut up melon before it goes bad and let that serve as the afternoon snack for you and the kids.

18. Applesauce

Scoop applesauce into an ice try and make your own snack cubes.

19. Root beer

We try to avoid soda because it can be pretty unhealthy, but if you can’t give it up, you can freeze soda in popsicle molds for a frozen treat.

20. Cheesecake slices

This is a fairly big indulgence, so try swapping out a store-bought cake for this Skinny Pumpkin Cheesecake.

21. Marshmallows

They are chewy and delicious when frozen, but don’t let them thaw. A soggy marshmallow is a bad marshmallow.

22. Coffee

Got leftover coffee in the pot? Don’t toss it — freeze it! Making trays of coffee ice cubes means your next iced coffee won’t get watered down.

23. Pomegranate seeds

You’ve seen these in yogurt, covered in chocolate and now frozen?

24. Tim Tams

These are an Australian dessert that are great on their own and even better frozen. If you’ve never had one before, be prepared. You might not be able to stop.

25. 3 Musketeers

There’s 45% less fat in these candy bars so it’s OK, right? Not really, but they are crazy good once frozen. Try freezing the bite-sized version so you don’t overdo it.

26. Dipped bananas

Yes, we mentioned bananas already, but try dipping them in chocolate or peanut butter (or both) and freeze. It’s a great dessert.

27. Blueberry yogurt bites

This is a great afternoon snack that is not only sweet, but also healthy. Click here to get the recipe.

28. Raspberries

These taste great frozen, and if it doesn’t satisfy the indulgence you’re craving, add a little whip cream to the top.

29. Lemonade

There’s a reason lemonade is sold frozen at theme parks and baseball games. It’s so refreshing! Freeze your own hand-squeezed or blend it with ice.

30. Mint leaves

Freeze mint leaves with water into your ice tray for a tasty and refreshing glass of ice cold water.
