Peaches and (Coconut) Cream Popsicles

Peaches and Coconut Cream Popsicles

Peaches are in season, which is the perfect excuse to whip up these incredibly delicious Peaches and Coconut Cream Popsicles. When summer is here, I run to the market and stock up as much as possible because peaches just don’t taste the same when out of season. This juicy fruit is a good source of vitamins A&C, fiber, potassium and niacin. That orange color provides beta-carotene, which is another anti-oxidant that may help protect our cells from oxidative damage. Similar to watermelons, peaches contain carotenoids that protect against eye disease. Add them to your smoothies, salads, and oatmeal, or enjoy on its own.

Peaches and Coconut Cream Popsicles

And talking about sweet treats, let’s talk about these popsicle beauties. Made with just 4 ingredients, these are perfect for when you get that summer sweet tooth. The coconut cream adds a richness to the popsicles, and the finishing maple syrup touch really helps to bring out the peach flavors. I recently purchased this affordable popsicle maker from Amazon, and used it to whip up this recipe. I’ve used other popsicle makers before, and it’s really a hit or miss. This one worked out really well. 

Alright so now on to our recipe. The first thing you want to do is peel your peaches. Then throw the 2 of the peeled peaches into the freezer for a couple hours, and leave 2 peaches aside for the popsicle molds. Alternatively, you can purchase frozen peaches and use that instead for this part. Once the peaches are frozen, add them to a blender, along with the coconut cream, maple syrup, and almond milk. Blend until smooth and creamy. Set aside. Now for those 2 peaches you set aside, slice those into 1/2″ wedges and distribute them evenly into 7 popsicle molds. Then add in the creamy peach blend. Pop any visible air bubbles, adjust the cover, and pop in those popsicle sticks. 

Freeze overnight. When ready, leave out for 4-5 minutes so the popsicles can loosen from the molds. You can also run room temperature water over the molds for a couple of minutes to help loosen the popsicles up. That’s it! Enjoy now, and save the rest for later. I like to keep them right in the mold and in the freezer until I’m ready to enjoy again. 

Do you make popsicles at home? What are your favorite combinations? I might whip up a few more popsicle recipes before the summer is out!
