Cool Down with Summer Peach Pops
Plus, you’ll feel good about serving snacks made with real fresh fruit and very little added sugar — that’s because our juicy, tree-ripened peaches are already naturally sweet and delicious.
As part of our sweet fruit promise, we measure our peaches’ Brix (sugar levels) every day with a special tool called a “refractometer.” The higher the Brix, the sweeter the fruit! We never sell peaches with a rating lower than 11 on the Brix scale, so you can be sure you’re always getting the best-tasting peaches possible.
Ready to dig into the ultimate summertime treat? Try our recipe below, and we think you’ll agree these peachy pops are tops!
Fresh Peach pops
1 hr 20 min
4 medium-size ripe peaches (about 1 1/4 pounds total)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons granulated sugar, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Additional peach slices (optional)
Cut peaches into halves and remove the pits. (Hint: Keep the skin on for additional nutrients, flavor and color!) Coarsely chop peaches in a food processor, leaving lots of chunky bits for extra texture. Put 1 cup of the chunky peaches into a separate medium-size bowl. Add orange juice, lemon juice and sugar to the food processor and blend until smooth. Add the pureed mixture to the peaches and stir in vanilla extract.
Evenly pour into 12 popsicle molds, leaving about 1/2 inch space at the top of each. Freeze for 1 hour, until they begin to set. If desired, slide an additional small peach slice into each pop for a fruity center surprise. Insert popsicle sticks into the pops — the mixture should be stiff enough so sticks stay in place. Freeze until completely firm, a few hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, run the molds under warm water to help release each pop.
Fun alternative: For the grownups, try a boozy twist by replacing the orange juice with 1 cup of rosé wine. Cheers!
