Ripe Peach Popsicles — the next best thing to sinking your teeth into a fresh picked peach…let the juice dribble down your chin!

They contain no other ingredients but the ripe fruit, a touch of sugar, and a squeeze of lemon. My CHERRY POPSICLES were transcendent. So were my WHOLE FRUIT POPS. These are no less. I’ve got at least one more installment coming up before I’ll let go of the bone — it’s just too much fun and they are so insanely tasty.

Don’t you dare peel those peaches, the skin is where the vitamins, flavor, and bright bits of color come from. Chop them up, pile them in the food processor or blender, and puree. It’s kind of an obvious concept, I know, but honestly you can’t find this kind of thing at your local supermarket. You’ve got to make it yourself. Depending on my fruit I’ll add a touch of sugar and some lemon juice, but that’s it. If you’re serving adults, you can add some liqueur. There’s nothing better on a hot night.

TIP:Ok, if you insist on peeling your peaches, do it the easy way, use a serrated peeler — it’ll make quick work of the job.

Mass produced fruit popsicles are mostly water and sugar, but these are made from pureed fruit and so they have nice texture to them as well as lots of nutritional value. And don’t get me started on the flavor…they really do taste just like biting into a piece of fresh fruit.

There’s still plenty of time to get a popsicle maker and have your own fun…here in California popsicle weather continues right up until Halloween…the one I use is pictured at the end of the post.

notes ~

  • As a general rule of thumb, a good sized peach will make 2 popsicles. This is a delicious way to use up ripe (or slightly over-ripe) fruit that won’t get eaten in time.
  • There’s nothing to stop you from mixing fruit, you can blend peaches, nectarines, apricots, etc, for your own custom pops.
  • I think it would be incredible to do this with white peaches.
  • Jack Daniels goes well with peaches if you’re into that kind of thing…

    I had a couple peaches getting to soft and I came across your post. I didnt have any lemon so I used lime juice. It tasted delicious after I blended it up. I’m excited to try it frozen. Thanks!

      Thats just why I love this recipe Destiny, you can make popsicles with just about any fruit, and it saves those last few that you don’t know what to do with 🙂
