Peaches are one of our families favorite Summer pleasures and we hate when the fresh peaches are gone. Speaking of Summer it wouldn’t be summer without a few homemade popsicles. Popsicles are simple and refreshing and if you don’t have an ice-cream maker popsicle molds are the next best thing. You can experiment with whatever you like and since I had lots of peaches these little pops got mixed up rather quickly. I used heavy cream in these pops because I was feeling rather indulgent but you could probably get the same effect here if you used half and half or whole milk, even vanilla yogurt would be tasty and not so many fat calories for sure. Whatever you do just make the most of your Summer and enjoy the simple pleasurable things.
