Homemade Popsicles vs Commercial Popsicles
It’s probably pretty obvious that these homemade popsicles are healthier than commercial pops. Not to mention, our peach popsicle recipe is completely dairy free!
The popsicles you pick up on your grocery store run, are usually made of mostly water and sugar, along with food coloring and artificial flavors. In contrast, our popsicles are made from pureed peaches, have a nice texture to them and are stuffed full of nutritional value. To top it off, they really do taste like biting into a fresh juicy piece of fruit with the added benefit of simutaneously cooling you off. Who doesn’t love biting into a cool popsicle on a hot summer day?
All you need is 3 simple ingredients
Coconut cream: This popsicle recipe is dairy-free but for an even creamier popsicle you can substitute the coconut cream for milk or vanilla yogurt. Personally, we like mixing milk with a heavier dairy product. Use a 1/2 cup of milk with 1 cup yogurt or whipping cream.
Fresh peaches: The key to picking the perfect peach is make sure the flesh is tender to the touch, soft, but not mushy.
Maple syrup: While we like using maple syrup, honey is an excellent alternative.
This recipe makes a pale pastel popsicle. For a stronger orange color, you can add a couple drops of food coloring. For a little added flavor, you can also try adding 1 tsp of vanilla.
Tools you’ll need to make homemade peach popsicles
- Popsicle mold: Molds come in all shapes and sizes, meaning serving size will vary. We typically get 8-10 popsicles out of this recipe.
- Wooden sticks
Tips for removing popsicles from popsicle molds
The best way to remove popsicles from a popsicle mold is to run warm water over the bottom of the mold. Once you’ve removed the popsicles, immediately place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then freeze for about 30 minutes.
Peach Popsicles FAQs
Can I make these popsicles with other fruits?
Yes! You can use almost any fruit you can puree. We love using other stone fruits, like plums, cherries and nectarines, but you can also get adventurous with other fruits or even combining fruits! Try watermelon, strawberries, pineapples or kiwi.
If you try a different fruit let us know how it goes in the comments below!
How long can you store homemade popsicles?
We usually devour them before we can even think about freezing them, but if stored in an airtight container and frozen they can last for up to 3 months!
I don’t have a popsicle mold, can I still make them?
Yes! You can use Dixie cups or a similar small paper cup. After filling the cups with the pureed mixture and fruit, top with foil and insert your wood sticks. Freeze until solid and then peel off the paper cup.
Can I use canned or frozen peaches?
Yes! If you crave peach popsicles when they’re out if season you can use canned or frozen peaches. However, you may need to adjust the amount of maple syrup. Canned peaches tend to be sweeter due to the syrup, while frozen peaches sometimes aren’t sweet enough.
How to make peach popsicles
First, remove the skin and seeds from the peaches. Take two and cut them into chunks, then set them aside for later.
Place the remaining peaches into a high speed blender. Add the coconut cream and the maple syrup, blending until the ingredients are combined.
Next place one peach chunk in each popsicle mold insert. Pour the blended mixture halfway into each, then add another peach chunk. Then continue to pour the mixture until it reaches the top of each mold.
Now, place the silicone cover on the popsicle molds and add the wooden sticks.
Freeze overnight or until firm. This should take 4-6 hours.
Serve & enjoy!
