Pop Goes the Peach


With the overpowering aroma of stone fruit at the farmers market and a particularly warm weekend, I decided it was the ideal time to make one of my favorite summertime obsessions: Popsicles. To keep it simple and showcase their pure deliciousness, I pureed peaches with tart lime juice and refreshing, home-grown pineapple mint. Because the peaches are perfectly ripe and juicy, you hardly need any sugar to sweeten the pops. If you aren't a peach person, consider another in-season fruit, like plums, cherries, or strawberries. Popsicles are irresistible on hot days, and the only way to beat the next heatwave is to keep reading.

Peach Mint Popsicles

  2. 1 lime, juiced
  3. 2 tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
  4. 1/4-1/2 cup sugar, depending on desired sweetness

Directions

  1. Slice peaches and remove pit. Place peaches, lime juice, 1 tablespoon of mint and 1/4 cup sugar in blender and pureed until well incorporated. Stir in rest of mint.
  2. Fill Popsicle molds with the puree and place in freezer.
  3. Wait 4-6 hours to freeze completely and enjoy.

I just made these today using my strawberries. I must say, the strawberry ones look a little prettier...they're solid deep pink and don't look as much like meat, lol.

I need to get a popsicle mold. It should be easy to find a cute one. They seem like a big trend this summer.

I just got 4 gallons of strawberries from my inlaws' farm and I was wondering what I was going to do with them all. I'm going to try these with strawberries instead of the peaches...they sound delicious!!
