Peaches and Cream Popsicles



There's nothing like eating a sweet, juicy, ripe peach on a hot summer day – but these peaches and cream popsicles made with yogurt, almond milk and almond extract make a wonderful treat on a hot day like today.

It's in the nineties today, the kind of day where you want to either sit in front of the air conditioner and never leave the house, or swim in the pool all day – we opted for the latter.


I've been thinking about making a peach dessert combined with almond extract – because I love the smell of my peach-almond facial scrub, so I came up with this easy dessert using really ripe sweet peaches, unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk and almond extract – delish! And by the way, Almond Breeze now comes in single size servings and is hosting a giveaway on Skinny Bits. Click here for a chance to win.

I used raw sugar to sweeten these, but you could sweeten them with stevia or whichever sweetener you prefer. My star shaped ice pop mold, which you can find on Amazon makes 4 oz popsicles, so depending on the size of your popsicle mold, you may get different amounts.

Calories: 78 • Fat: 0.5 g • Carb: 17 g • Fiber: 1 g • Protein: 2 g • Sugar: 16.5 g
Sodium: 59 mg (without salt) • Cholest: 1.3 mg

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium peaches
  • 1/2 cup 2% Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup sugar (I used raw, or your favorite sweetner)
  • 1/3 cup Almond Breeze vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine salt

Directions:

Halve and pit the peaches. Cut the peach halves into 1/4-inch dice until you have 1 cup. Place the diced peaches in a bowl; set aside.



Cut the remaining peaches into rough 1-inch chunks and place in the blender. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth, scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Pour the mixture into the bowl with the diced peaches and mix to combine.

Divide the mixture evenly into the popsicle molds, or disposable small plastic cups. Insert the sticks and freeze until solid, at least 5 to 6 hours.

    1. Amazon, see the link above, I made them with wooden popsicle sticks rather than the sticks that come with the mold, just a personal preference.

  9. I don't like the taste of almond milk, do you think using coconut milk will have same consistency?

    ReplyDelete
  10. This recipe is right on time! I have some really ripe peaches just begging to be used.

  11. Used dates instead of sugar, nectarines, and 0% greek because it's all I had on hand. Awesome!!! Almond is my ABSOLUTE favorite, so next time I would probably increase that a bit but that's just my preference. Thanks for the great recipe Gina!

    1. Dates as a sweetener is an awesome idea.

  12. Looks good, think I might have to try this :)

  13. Question: If you used stevia, what would that reduce the sugar count by? I had gastric bypass, so I have to be very careful about how many grams of sugar. I try to keep it under ten. Thank you for this awesome looking recipe!

    1. I like do do a blend, but I use liquid stevia so I would say add it to your taste.

  14. Gina, is the sugar that you use, the sugar in the raw? Being a diabetic could you recommend another sweetener. Not a fan if the stevia. I could try it again. Did not like it in coffee. I enjoy nothing in my coffee now. Thanks Gina

  15. Almond milk is something I don't buy and I don't want to buy it just for this one recipe. Is there something else that I can use in place of the almond milk?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you buy it you can also go and make Gina's blueberry and oatmeal muffins that call for almond milk. They are DELICIOUS! That should help take care of the almond milk leftover :)

    2. There's a shelf stable version you can buy - they now sell 8oz singles of almond milk. Or a 4 pack of 8oz containers. All shelf stable.

      Delete
    3. You could use any milk you have in your fridge.

  16. Your little girl is absolutely adorable! These beat anything you could buy at the store by a country mile.

  17. Can't wait to try this! I'm going to try it in a plastic container since I don't have any popsicle molds. A question....would regular plain yogurt work instead of Greek? I don't like the taste of Greek. Thanks!

    Your recipes are awesome!!!

  18. These look amazing! Where did you get the star-shaped popsicle molds?

  19. YUMMY!
    I love the combo of almond and peach.
    When my kids were little we had peaches and almond liqueur for dessert often...just enough to taste the almond flavour!
    I be making this recipe as soon as I can get peaches!

  21. This looks absolutely wonderful! I normally used fat free Greek yogurt, but it seems like that should work fine. Thank you for posting this.

  25. I like how your used your face scrub for recipe inspiration! I guess anything can really inspire people in the kitchen. :) Your almond extract idea makes me want to whip up a batch of popsicles with vanilla bean paste! Can't wait to try it out!

    1. yum, yeah funny it smells so good. everytime I use it I say I gotta make something with these two ingredients, LOL

  26. it looks really good but isnt the purpose of drinking almond milk defeated when using yogurt?? I cant have dairy at all. Ugh I love yogurt too. I can try to make them without the yogurt.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't have almond milk on hand so was going to use coconut water as a substitute...will report back. I'm guessing it will effevt the thickness..

    ReplyDelete
  28. If we use the vanilla coconut milk which I find to be sweet, will we still need the sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I made these with my daughter this weekend, I measured the salt wrong so they came out a little salty. Would have to make them again and add the right amount of salt. Other than that they came out good. But now instead of eating a sweet treat is like eating peaches with salt :)

  30. Thank you for this incredible idea! Just finished making mine with nectarines and used Greek style goat yogurt. So good!!!!

  31. Quick question--did you peel the peaches?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi from Australia, no peaches in season yet but about to try with fresh mango. Cannot wait.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What about using mangos?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi, I'm dairy free at the moment so can't add the yogurt - instead of just almond milk which i guess would be too runny do you think i could add chia seeds to thicken it up? thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Could I use frozen peaches, & honey for sweetener?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would love to know how to make this with frozen peaches. Is it possible?

    1. I did and it is great. I had to let the peaches thaw just a bit.

  37. Any idea the cup equivalent to 3 peaches is? I'm wanting to use my fresh strawberries and raspberries.
