Summer is officially here and so is my favorite produce season ever. The farmers markets have been bursting with juicy peaches, and I'm celebrating with the ultimate healthy and refreshing dessert - creamy coconut, vanilla bean, & peach popsicles. OMG. They're made with coconut milk, so they're totally dairy-free, and sweetened naturally with peaches and just a touch of honey or maple syrup.
This recipe was inspired by a super fun collaboration with a huge group of talented bloggers. We all got together and decided we'd share our favorite peach recipes on the same day. You can see all of the deliciousness on instagram under the hashtag #summerlovespeaches, and I'll also share a full list of all the bloggers who participated at the end of this post so you can check them out! Get ready to be inspired - you'll want to add fresh peaches to every meal of the day... they're too just too good to resist!
I'm so excited to share this recipe with you guys. The ingredients are super simple, healthy, and fresh, and while these pops look impressive, they're actually really easy to make. Seriously, you just throw everything into the blender, pour it into the popsicle molds, and pop em in the freezer. The hardest part about this recipe is that you have to patiently wait for them to freeze!
Creamy Coconut & Peach Popsicles
4 fresh organic peaches or 2 1/2 cups frozen peaches
1 (13.5 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey (or 5 drops organic liquid stevia*)
2 tsp vanilla extract (optional: add the seeds from 1 vanilla bean as well)
Pinch of salt
Optional: 2 tbsp toasted shredded coconut
*For a sugar-free version that's still delicious, try using a couple drops of organic liquid stevia and sweeten to taste!
Yields 10 popsicles.
This is my absolute favorite summer treat and I cannot wait for you to try them!
