We're in for a long, hot summer. So to stave off heat stroke, we're bringing you our favorite summer treats each week as part of Frozen Friday, giving you the scoop on our favorite ice-cold recipes and party ideas to help you stay cool all summer long.

Wondering how to use every last berry in the pints you buy? You could toss a few blueberries into your oatmeal or craft a last-minute blackberry garnish, but we suggest making your leftover fruit the main attraction. Better yet, transform your forgotten fruit into a frozen must-have. With some light yogurt or a drizzle of warm chocolate, these four simple recipes will guarantee that you and your pint finish strong.

1. Dreamy Berries & Cream ShakeFamily Fresh Cooking tosses frozen blueberries, raspberries and strawberries into the blender with vanilla protein powder and almond milk, then sprays on a touch of whipped cream for an early summer indulgence (pictured above).

2. Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars: Combine and freeze Greek yogurt, chopped berries and your sweet add-ins of choice for The Lean Green Bean's crunchy cool down.

3. Frozen Yogurt-Covered Fruit Pops:  In Sock Monkey Slippers dips chopped mango, kiwi, strawberry and banana into honey-infused Greek yogurt, then goes to work with an array of sweet and nutty toppings.
