Peach Popsicles

Ok, so I tried making these candied ginger studded peach pops a few weeks ago, and for whatever reason, the results were completely tasteless pops with candied ginger. I have no clue how, but there was NO peach flavor what-so-ever! So. Weird. (remember that show So Weird? lol) So my husband and I went peach picking last weekend and as promised, I tried again, and voila! Pops that taste like peaches. Now…….as for the candied ginger……that was my go-to morning sickness reliever so as soon as I took a bite of it it brought all those memories back! Now, I really didn’t have bad morning sickness–at all–but never-the-less, not something you want to remember when you’re trying to enjoy something tasty! So, I couldn’t eat them. Instead, I just made regular plain ol’ delicious peach pops. I actually used the recipe from my peach sorbet and halved it {why didn’t I think of that the first time? Duh!} I still showed what I did for the candied ginger though, for all you peeps who’ll ENJOY it!

Candied Ginger Studded Peach Pops

3 medium sized peaches

1/4 cup coconut water (or plain!)

1/4 cup agave (it seems like a lot, and will be sickeningly sweet if you try it like this, but the sweetness dulls once frozen)

Juice from half a lemon

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used my homemade stuff)

Candied ginger (optional)

Blend all the ingredients except the ginger, and stick it in the fridge to cool for an hour.

Here’s the ginger I used: I diced them up into tiny pieces using a sharp knife.peachpops2

Once thoroughly chilled, you can start by adding a tiny bit of the peach mixture followed by a few ginger pieces, and repeating this until the mold is full. Stick the molds into your freezer and give it a few hours until frozen through! I love pops so much that I invested in a Zoku Pop Maker so I don’t have to wait more than 10 minutes for mine! 🙂 Tip! If you have any of the peach mixture left over, freeze it in ice cubes to stick in smoothies! I add them to my green smoothies all the time!peachpops1
