Peaches and Creme Popsicles: A Healthy, Refreshing Summer TreatElizabeth Stark

Summer fruits are so sweet and delicious that they can carry a dessert by themselves without much sugar. These peaches and cream ice pops, for example, are delicious and refreshing treat for a hot day. Each pop is sweetened by just a tiny bit of honey–as little as a quarter tablespoon. The peaches and banana do the rest of the work.
The banana also helps give these pops a little bit of structure. As with all frozen pops, the longer you can give them to set up, the better. We like to plan on doing them overnight. It can be hard to wait, but it’s worth it!
Naturally Sweet Peaches and Cream Pops
Makes: Ten 4 oz. ice pops
5 ripe peaches
2 ripe bananas
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
2 – 4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Pour into 5 oz. Dixie cups or traditional popsicle molds. Freeze for 45 minutes, insert popsicle sticks, and continue to freeze until popsicles are set, preferably overnight.
To serve, make a small incision in the lip of the Dixie cup and tear off. Voila, summer on a stick!
