Want to cool off in a tasty way this summer? Try these homemade peach popsicles. They’re a refreshing treat on a hot summer day!
These homemade peach popsicles are perfect for a summer day. They’re naturally sweetened with maple syrup or honey and fresh peaches and you can use fresh or frozen peaches. No need for store-bought sugar pops!
How To Pick The Perfect Peach
If you use fresh peaches for this recipe (which I highly recommend), choose peaches that have no dark spots and are first while still having a slight amount of give when you press on them.
Can I Use Frozen Or Canned Peaches?
You can! Though it’s pretty tough to find canned peaches that don’t have added sugar or corn syrup, so read the ingredient lists carefully. And if using frozen peaches, make sure they don’t have added sugar either. Blending may be easier if you thaw them first.
How Do You Make Popsicles Not Icy?
To make your popsicles truly creamy and keep them from getting icy, you can blend in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch (or arrowroot powder) to the blender.
Tip For Removing Homemade Peach Popsicles From Popsicle Molds
Most molds will allow you to just slip the popsicle out pretty easily. But in the event that they stick, simply run a bit of warm to hot water over the back side of the popsicle mold to help loosen it up.
If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can also use small paper cups (like dixie cups) instead.
You can add any of the following to play around with the flavors on this.
- Lemon juice
- Orange juice
- Vanilla extract
- Chopped strawberries or other fruit pieces
- Vegan – These are naturally vegan if made as written.
- Keto – Substitute the peaches for berries and use heavy cream or full-fat coconut milk and a low-carb sweetener
- Dairy-free – These are already dairy-free.
- Paleo – These are already paleo-friendly.
About The Ingredients
Coconut milk – Full-fat coconut milk is best, though you could use light coconut milk if you don’t mind these being a tad less creamy.
Peaches – peeled and de-seeded. Thawed, if frozen. You’ll blend most, but chop a few for adding chunks of peach to your popsicles.
Pure maple syrup – You can also use honey. Though I would cut back slightly if you are sensitive to the level of sweetness. Try 2 to 3 tablespoons.
How Do You Make Popsicles Step By Step?
Gather and measure all the ingredients.
Peel and de-seed the peaches but save a couple and cut them into chunks. Save them for later.
Place the remaining peaches into a highspeed blender (or food processor) and add the coconut cream and the maple syrup.
Blend everything until the ingredients are smooth.
In the popsicle mold, place one peach chunk in each one. Then pour the blended mixture into the mold until it’s about halfway filled. Add another peach chunk, and finish filling up the mold. Insert the popsicle sticks.
Freeze overnight or at least 6 hours or until it’s firm.
How Long Do Homemade Peach Popsicles Last In The Freezer?
These will last 4 to 6 months in the freezer.
