We love fresh peaches all summer long.  

I live in Columbus and look forward to a visit from the Georgia Peach Truck every year. 

When it’s peach harvest time, I am the first to order. 

Peach season in Georgia doesn’t compare to what we get here in Ohio.

This fresh summer fruit needs to be eaten and used up quickly.

Otherwise they turn soft quickly and I just hate to freeze the fruit, unless they are for popsicles.

It’s made with peach puree, raw honey and ginger.

All you need is ice pop molds and sticks!

There is a good chance I’ll be making another batch very soon.

This recipe uses simple ingredients and ripe peaches are the star of the show.

Do you know what it’s like to bite into a delicious sweet peach and have the juice drip down your face?

These homemade popsicles promise that same summertime nostalgic feeling of biting into this sweet stone fruit.

Let’s dig in to this delicious recipe!

​Simple ingredients

Peaches. If you can’t get your order in with the Georgia Peach Truck, head to your local farmer’s market or visit a peach farm for the freshest and sweetest peaches.

Honey. I prefer raw local honey and a small amount of honey is all you need.

Ginger. Adding a few slices of fresh ginger to the simple syrup gives these peach popsicles a delicious wonderful flavor.

Sugar. I use white granular sugar for my own popsicles, but Monkfruit sugar, which is sugar-free, works at the same ratio if you want no added sugar. 

Lime juice. Just a squeeze adds tartness to this tasty treat.

Salt.

Water.

How to make these easy peach popsicles

These fresh fruit popsicles are a delicious way to enjoy the summer months:

  1. Bring the sugar, honey, salt and water to a boil and stir until the sugar dissolves. 
  2. Add a slice of ginger, set the pot aside and let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Next purée the diced peaches, the simple syrup and the lime juice until smooth. 
  4. Pour the popsicle mixture into silicone molds.
  5. Freeze for about an hour then insert popsicle sticks. 
  6. Be sure to freeze the homemade peach popsicles until the sticks are completely frozen inside the pops, about eight hours.

How to remove popsicles from a mold

Ensure the popsicles are completely frozen before attempting to remove them.

Let the mold sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes to slightly thaw the edges.

Run warm water over the outside of the mold to loosen the popsicles. Do not let the water get inside the mold.

Push up from the bottom of each popsicle cavity if you’re using a silicone mold. If you’re using a hard plastic mold, you may need to gently twist or pull the popsicle stick.

Do not pull from the stick if the popsicle does not release easily; instead, repeat the warm water method.

Remember, icier popsicles may need another try. Patience is key! 

If the popsicles don’t come out easily, give them a little more time to thaw around the edges.

Once they have been removed from the molds, serve them on a bed of ice to keep them cold.

You can also individually wrap the ice pops in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer bag in the freezer. 

So forget store-bought popsicles and give these sweet and delicious ice pops a try.

If you don’t have a favorite popsicle mold, pick one up at Amazon or any home store along with food-safe popsicle sticks.
