Fragrant fresh peaches and rich whipping cream make a decadent but surprisingly light frozen pop! Post may contain affiliate links.
My CSA gave me four perfectly ripe peaches. I debated just sitting and eating them right that minute, with juice running down my arm. I debated sharing some with hubs, which would mean two for him, two for me...gone much to quickly. I wanted to make them last just a little bit longer. Spread the peachy joy.
I can think of no better way to spread out a few pieces of fruit that freezing them and putting them on a stick. I found Peaches-and-Cream Frozen Pops at Cooking Light and it totally fit the bill. I think I've told you before that I get raw milk from a local herd share. So sitting atop my milk is a lovely large layer of cream. I just use a ladle and carefully scoop out the amount of cream that I need. These were everything I had hoped they would be, nice and simple with a pure fresh peach flavor with a hint of cream.
If you'd like to make your own pops, I'd recommend Prepworks from Progressive International PLP-1 Freezer Pop Maker or Ozera Repeated Use Popsicle Molds Ice Pop Molds, Set of 6, Green.
Peaches-and-Cream Frozen Pops
- Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer 5 minutes or until peaches are very tender, stirring frequently. Place peach mixture and lemon juice in a food processor; process until smooth. Refrigerate 1 hour. Stir in cream.
- Divide peach mixture evenly among 8 (4-ounce) ice-pop molds. Top with lid, and insert a craft stick into center of each mold; freeze 6 hours or until thoroughly frozen.
- (Mine only made 7 and a ½).

Delicious peaches and cream frozen pops, thanks for sharing with Hearth and Soul blog hop. Pinning it. sharing in the FB.
These look delicious. I love the creamsicle popsicles, such a classic, and these look like a yummy twist on them. Thanks for sharing at DDT.

Thank you so much for linking up with us at Delicious Dish Tuesday this week!
Love peaches! They're one of my favorite fruits. These look incredibly tasty. Thank you for linking at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you again next week.
there aren't enough peach ice creams and sorbets out there; i guess we'll have to just make them ourselves! these are fantastic!
These sound so good
I can just imagine what they taste like reading the recipe
p.s. To answer your comment on my blog: my comment about meditating is on your meditation app post on your Grey is the New Black blog. 🙂
10% Happier was super fab and I love how he covered "let it go" vs "let it be" (I think I prefer "let it be" even though I've been avidly practicing "let it go" for several years now) and how to stay edgy and not being a pushover without being mean/nasty. I wish he had interviewed Jon Kabat-Zinn, as I would love to know more about him (he is the founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) but I was fascinated with his time with Deepak Chopra!
Mmmmmm! Sounds delish!!!

They do sound delicious Pam and a perfect way to savor the taste, I'm sure. I'm waiting ever so patiently for the roadsides to start "hawking" peaches. Seriously, is there anything better than peaches and cream:) Your Pops fit the bill for me too. I'm headed to the dairy farm this week for some fresh milk. Hopefully, I'll pass some fresh peaches along the way:)
Thank you so much for sharing, Pam...
I hope you got to sample the half as a reward for thinking these up. They sound delicious!
This was definitely the way to go. I must do more popsicling before summer is over!
