Vegan Peaches and Cream Popsicles

Peaches and Cream Popsicles

Grilled Peaches

 

So now that we’ve all agreed that it’s popsicles and not ice pops, is it cream or creme? We vote for cream because creme is a little too fancypants.

Does anybody know why vendors at the farmers market never sell individual peaches? You always have to buy a big box of them, and they have such a short shelf-life, there’s no way anyone can finish so many peaches in a few days time. So what do with them? Well, you can serve grilled peaches as an alternative to peach pie or cobbler. Top them with some vanilla ice cream or granola for a (relatively) low-calorie dessert or serve them as a more savory side by sprinkling them with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary and a little salt and pepper.

The absolute best, though, is making popsicles. And while grilling the peaches first intensifies their flavor, feel free to use fresh peaches instead.

      Oh, but you can make them in regular molds too. The Zoku is just faster, for those of us with little patience. 🙂

    These sound delicious! I just got my Zoku today will be going through your recipes and finding stuff to make. I sure do hope peaches are still on sale. FYI – you can make peach muffins too. Just learned that this week as I had peaches that were starting to soften – yum!

      Ooh, peach muffins would be so good! Have you used your Zoku yet? I made the best Ginger Peach popsicles with it last week. They were seriously the best ones I’ve made all summer. (And yeah, if you hadn’t guessed, peaches have been on sale a lot here lately. I also made peach fruit leather last week!)

    I would have never thought to use grilled peaches in popsicles–yum! I love grilled peaches, though I grilled some last year that weren’t ripe enough–bleck.

    Those pops are a fantastic idea. I am not a pop eater, generally but these would be eaten quickly.

      I’m not a big popsicle fan either, until I started making my own. The store bought ones are too boring for me, I guess. 🙂

      I’m not a big fan of peaches, but grilling them makes them so much better, in my opinion. 🙂 I think I might try making a grilled peach salsa…

    I saw Jollymom.com had a grilled peach sandwich post a few weeks ago. It looked kind of interesting!

    Love grilled peaches! Add a dollop of goat cheese and a drizzle of honey and I’m set. Those popsicles look great too!

      Thanks! I think the best thing about grilled peaches is that there are SO many things you can do with them. I’m partial to ice cream on top myself. 🙂
