Make sure to reserve a portion of the peaches as you puree the mixture so the pops will be packed with icy cold, chunky bits of fruit. For a grown-up twist, try adding 1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint, lemon verbena or basil.

Amazing flavor and texture. I left out the sugar and sweetened it with stevia liquid drops. My kids and I loved them. I want to try the same puree with gelatin to make a jiggly dessert. Read More

Delicious! I freeze these individually in small containers and pack them in our lunches. They are more like a slushy by noon and are delicious. My daughter thinks they would be better as traditional popsicles with a stick in them. Pros: Tastier than store-bought popsicles without the chemicals Cons: Waiting for them to freeze Read More

Skip the vanilla I've been excited about these for a couple weeks now and finally made them. I put in the vanilla because I thought it would be nuanced and bring together the overall flavor -- but it wasn't and it didn't. I would skip the vanilla altogether UNLESS you're looking for a dreamsicle-style popsicle (I was not). The orange juice and vanilla made the peaches irrelevant. Next time I'll probably do just peaches and citrus juice (and sugar) for something a little brighter and peachier. Pros: Fruity Cons: May as well not have peaches in it Read More

Fabulous! I used fresh peaches from the farmers' market and substituted milk for the orange juice (I didn't have any). I was also pretty liberal with the vanilla extract. My concoction was so delish! It tasted like Creamsicles but without the calories. Yummy! Read More
