Peach Popsicles

We are fortunate to have a lot of peach orchards here in West Michigan.  Most of the Michigan peaches are grown in the west central to southeast corner, close to Lake Michigan.  The very popular Red Haven Peach, popular throughout the U.S. was introduced in 1940 in nearby South Haven.  Info is courtesy of michigangrown.org.

I used Red Haven peaches that I purchased from Little Farmers Acres for the peach popsicles in this recipe.

These Peach Popsicles are perfect for hot summer days.  They are a cool and creamy treat that is not too sweet.

(4) fresh peaches
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup Half and half
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Wash and dry the peaches. Cut in halves and remove pits and discard.   Leaving the skin on, dice the sliced peaches. Should be about 3 cups.  Set aside 1 cup of the diced peaches.

Add the 2 cups of diced peaches, heavy cream, half and half, sugar, and vanilla extract to a food processor.  Process until the mixture is smooth.

Stir in the reserved 1 cup of diced peaches. Carefully pour into popsicle molds.  Freeze for 6 hours or overnight before serving.

Let thaw at room temperature for about 5 minutes before eating for extra creaminess.

Notes:
I used popsicle molds from Prepworks by Progressive Freezer Pop Maker that I purchased at Amazon.  If you don’t have popsicle molds, use small paper cups and popsicle sticks.

It seems like the deer are coming around more frequently.  Here is a young one from a couple of weeks ago.  Probably came around looking for my hostas.
