Ingredients:

I used inspiration from my orange blossom creamsicles and blood orange creamsicles, and kept it super simple. I wanted to treat these more like ice cream, because I wanted them to be extra rich and creamy. That’s why I don’t just blend all of the ingredients and place them in a popsicle mold. The extra step makes a wonderful peaches and cream pop indeed. 🙂

  • Peaches – fresh or frozen
  • Heavy cream – any milk is fine, but the heavy cream will give these that extra rich creamy flavor you want in a “peaches and cream desert”
  • Greek yogurt – any yogurt will be fine. Greek yogurt is added for it’s sour tang, which makes this peaches and cream treat irresistible. Plus, it’s loaded with protein and probiotics and contributes to the smooth, creamy texture vs. a plain icy fruit pop.
  • Honey – any liquid or non liquid sweetener works fine. We just love the wonders of honey.

How to make them:

  • First you’ll start by slicing your peaches if you’re using fresh.
  • Add peaches, greek yogurt, heavy cream and honey into a medium sized saucepan.
  • Heat on lowest temperature setting for 15 minutes for a slow reduction, and to allow the honey to completely dissolve. Stir consistently.
  • Transfer into popsicle molds.
  • Freeze for 6 hours – overnight

Notes about the recipe:

When heating dairy like you would for this popsicle, be careful to heat on low. Dairy can become curdled if it gets too warm, and make sure your honey is at room temperature when you add it to dissolve within the warm mixture.

Frequently asked questions:

How do you make popsicles without popsicle molds or sticks?

If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can still make homemade popsicles!

  • You can use cups, paper, plastic glass. In fact, I used biodegradable plastic cups for these popsicles.

Can you make peaches and cream popsicles vegan?

A recipe like this can absolutely be vegan! Swap out cream for coconut cream, and yogurt for any dairy free yogurt you enjoy. And replace the honey with any sweetener of choice. Even granulated sugar works fine here.

What are the best popsicle molds?

The fun thing about popsicles is that they’re so adaptable, and that you can get creative with the shapes, colors and ingredients. Finding a cute mold makes a popsicle every fun. I typically use our stainless steel popsicle molds. I love that I can pop them in the dishwasher when we’re done, and that they’ll last us a lifetime. But linking some cute ones below!

Can frozen peaches be used for popsicles?

Frozen peaches are perfectly fine to be used in this recipe! They will thaw as they are melted, so you may end up with an extra popsicle or two due to the extra liquid.

How to Store Homemade Popsicles

These homemade popsicles will keep well in the freezer. I recommend removing them from their mold, and placing a small piece of parchment or wax paper in between them. That way, they will stay fresh without sticking to each other. Alternatively, you can set them upright in an air tight storage bag, so that they’re not stacked on top of each other. Popsicles are good for one month in the freezer.

I hope this recipe works beautifully for you and is enjoyed for many years to come. Thank you so much for reading. Your visit to my site helped support a small mama run business today. If you enjoyed it, I would be so honored if you would share with your loved ones.
