peaches & creamsicles: sugar-free ice pops

peaches and cream ice popsREMEMBER HOW I HAVE MORE PEACHES THAN our kids have partially dressed baby dolls thrown all over the house? We’ve done a health(ier) peach crisp, no sugar peach roll-ups, and a whole-wheat pancake with wedges of juicy peaches lining the top. Then we got serious.

Into our trusty blender went fresh peaches, half & half plus a dash of real maple syrup. You can see that I didn’t even peel them, just cut into big chunks right off the pits. Freeze overnight and bam. A sugar free treat full of fresh fruit.

Bonus, it works with strawberries too.peach and strawberry cream ice pops

I used fresh fruit but frozen would work beautifully as well. Also, this is less of a recipe than a technique. If you only have 2 peaches, just make fewer ice pops but by all means make them!
