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

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…

Ingredients

  • 4 large ripe peaches, don't peel
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

Instructions

  1. Slice the peaches in half, remove the pits, and give them a rough chop. Add the peaches to a food processor or blender, along with the sugar and lemon juice. Puree until smooth.
  2. Fill the popsicle molds to the top, and then insert sticks. Freeze until solid.
  3. To remove the popsicles, fill a sink with hot water and immerse the mold up to, but not over, the top lip for several seconds, then remove the popsicles.
  4. To store, wrap securely in plastic and put back in the freezer.

      I usually pour the puree into the mold from a glass measuring cup with a spout, but sometimes I’ll put the pureed fruit in a baggie and cut off the corner to squeeze it in neatly. But even if you use a spoon you can always wipe off any drips from the top of the mold before freezing. Hope you love them, I like the idea of mixing in plums. I just made a white peach version which I might put up on the blog, they’re pretty in pink!

        Thank you for responding so quickly. They came out more purple because of the plums. By leaving the lid off, it is much easier to remove from the mold. The taste is so yummy, all fruit no ice taste. Thank you again.

          I know what you mean about the all fruit/no ice, it’s very unusual, and really does taste just like fresh fruit.
