Chunky Peach Popsicles

  • 1 1/4 lb (about 3-4 medium) peaches, halved and pitted
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Make sure to reserve a portion of the peaches as you puree the mixture so the pops will be packed with icy cold, chunky bits of fruit.  For a grown-up twist, try adding 1-2 tsp finely chopped fresh mint, lemon verbena, or basil!

Coarsely chop peaches in a food processor.  Transfer 1 cup of the chunky peaches to a medium bowl.  Add lemon juice, orange juice, and sugar to taste to the food processor.  Puree until smooth.  Add to the bowl with the chunky peaches and stir in vanilla.

Divide the mixture among twelve 2-ounce or eight 3-ounce freezer-pop molds (or small paper cups).  Freeze until beginning to set, about 1 hour.  Insert frozen-treat sticks and freeze until completely firm, about 1 hour more.
