Vanilla Peach Pops

There’s only one thing more summery than juicy, ripe peaches: Juicy, ripe peaches frozen into sweet, melty, almond milk popsicles! It’s summer on a stick, friends.

First, you need to get your hands on some really good peaches. If you can’t find good peaches, use whatever juicy peak-season fruit you do have. (Sliced strawberries would be excellent here).

For the base, whisk Vanilla Almond Breeze, with a touch of coconut oil and maple syrup. You could also use plain (sweetened) almond milk and add a bit of vanilla bean. (I’d stay away from vanilla extract this time).

These are pretty lightly sweetened, which is my personal preference. Feel free to add more maple syrup if you wish. Or get fancy and simmer your peaches into a peach purée.

Because its summer, and I was lazy, I kept it simple…

Fill a popsicle mold with chopped peaches and pour the almond milk mixture over top. Don’t worry, if you don’t have a popsicle mold, you can use little cups instead. Just let them freeze for an hour or so before placing the sticks.

Now the hard part: waiting. Let them freeze overnight (or about 10 hours).

Serves: 10 popsicles
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Bring vanilla almond milk to room temp, (otherwise the melted coconut oil will harden as you add it). Whisk the almond milk together with coconut oil, maple syrup and a pinch of salt.
  2. Slice peaches into small pieces and drop them into a popsicle mold.
  3. Pour the almond milk mixture over the peaches. (Depending on the size of your peaches you might have extra). Place sticks, then freeze overnight.
Notes
Don't use unsweetened almond milk or you will have to add more sugar to the recipe.

If you don't have a popsicle mold, you can freeze them in little cups.

I have this popsicle mold.

      Ha, well you can always freeze them in little cups (although the popsicle mold is pretty fun)

  8. These are gorgeous! And I’m pumped about the fact that they’re healthy too. We finally just got peaches at the farmers market last week so I’ll try these soon.

      Thanks! I love it when fruit is so great it can count as “dessert’ without much else.

  9. Love the look of these… and I’m kind of obsessed with finding the BEST peaches right now. I’ll have to give these a whirl. Also… don’t you love that popsicle mold? I have one too and it’s the best!

    • jeanine
      07.10.2014

      I do! This was the first time I used it, super easy 🙂

  10. I know how good the Texas peaches are -I was just enjoying them a few weeks ago. So I love all the ideas you have had to highlight and compliment them this summer! Even though the Swiss peaches are not Texas/Hill Country peaches they are still pretty good and I am going to do a better job of making them a centerpiece in dishes this summer, thanks to you. 🙂

      ha, well they don’t need quite 20, I’ve made them in the morning and they’re ready by evening (and vice versa!).

        haha. That was a typo on my part for sure! Freudian slip maybe? 10 hours might feel like 20 when dessert is involved!

    These are so pretty!!! Cannot wait until Colorado peaches are in season!

  12. Yum! It is still a little early for peaches here, but I have all the ingredients, and some strawberries that I need to use, so I will be making these right away! Thank you so much! I love your blog.

    • jeanine

  13. Oh, yes! Peaches are in full swing where I am and I have a few juicy ones on my counter right now. I must make these tonight!

    Peaches are my life right now! can you believe i NEVER had a fresh peach until this past weekend?! I know… very, very sad. Will make up for lost time starting with this recipe!
    P.S. Not to self promote, but I just posted a video over on my YouTube channel talking about my favorite healthy snacks that I can buy at a store when I simply don’t have time to make something myself. I sincerely thought you might be interested, so here’s the link if you are! http://youtu.be/NqUOXdwSAYM I think of all my fave health/food bloggers when I make videos like this one… So of course I thought of Love and Lemons!

  16. I love peaches and cream, so this looks right down my alley!

  17. Whoa, beautiful! I’ve been making lots of ice cream (I’m cooking through the national food holidays on my blog like a crazy person), but could still go for pops like these. Now to just get myself a popsicle mold…

    wow these look amazing! can’t wait to give them ago, my two favourite things, peaches and ice pops!xx

    Hi I was wondering if there’s an alternative for coconut oil? These look good, but would omitting it ruin them??

    • jeanine
      07.10.2014

      It just adds a tiny bit of richness, you could leave it out if you want.

  20. wow, this is inspiring me to order a popsicle mold asap!!

  21. I visited many sites but the audio feature for audio songs present at this
    web site is really excellent.

  22. This looks amazing! Have you ever considered putting fresh herbs in your frozen treats? I just made Mango Basil Frozen Yogurt (inspired by a trip to Quito, Ecuador) and it turned out to be a delicious and very unique treat. Worth experimenting with!

  23. Nice respond in return of this matter with solid arguments
    and describing everything on the topic of that.

  24. I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re using?
    I’m having some small security problems with my latest site and
    I’d like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any suggestions?

  25. You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be actually one thing which I think I would by no means
    understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am having a look forward in your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get
    the hold of it!

  26. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and energy
    to put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

    I use unsweetened almond milk. However I use 1 1/2 tablespoon of orange blossom honey. Perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

    Vanilla and peaches go so well together! I love making popsicles, so I’ll have to add these to my list.

    I love love LOVE peaches and popsicles, and was super excited about making these last night. Mine turned out not quite as creamy though. 🙁
    They’re mostly ice with a hint of almondy peach. Any ideas on what I could’ve done wrong? I used unsweetened almond milk and upped the amount of maple syrup, but I can’t imagine that made the difference….

    • jeanine
      08.20.2014

      I’m not sure if the unsweetened makes a difference because I only tried it with sweetened vanilla. Mine weren’t super creamy, they’re definitely a lighter snack (I packed mine full with peaches so they were more peach than milk). If you wanted a creamier pop, I’d try adding yogurt or full fat coconut milk – the more fat, the creamier they’ll be. (You could try simmering the peaches which would bring out more flavor too).

    I’d say you can use unsweetened almond milk and not have to add sugar by blending the peaches and milk together.
