A container of yogurt transformed into an ice pop isn't just a yummy treat for kids -- its lid can catch messy drips. Open a 6-ounce container of fruit yogurt; drain excess liquid, and stir. Add a couple of teaspoons of berries and granola on top, pressing into yogurt a bit. Cut a slit in the lid, just large enough to insert a large craft stick. Put lid back on; insert stick halfway into yogurt. Freeze at least 5 hours. To unmold, dip cup into bowl of warm water.

Dining at home this February 14? For a romantic prelude or finale to the meal, serve dried Calimyrna figs. When cut lengthwise, they look like little hearts. They're a sweet complement to cheeses, crusty breads, and salads. An added benefit: Figs are packed with nutrients, such as iron and potassium, which helps lower blood pressure.

Sweet meets heat in these colorful fruit cups inspired by a popular Mexican street-food snack. With a squeeze of lime juice and a dusting of chili powder, slices of papaya, cantaloupe, mango, watermelon, and pineapple take on a new depth of flavor. They're a cinch to make for any celebration.
Individual portions of fruit are easy to serve and eat. Clear old-fashioned glasses (Crate & Barrel) show off the sherbet-y shades.
