Peach Nectar Popsicles

Frozen Peach Nectar Popsicles

Peaches are one of my favorite fruits of the summer. When I see them, or any foodstuff inspired by peaches, I am typically swayed to buy. So it happened when I saw some peach nectar in my grocery store.

Nectars typically contain the pulp and/or flesh of the fruit, rather than just the juice from the fruit. However, it depends on the brand, as some nectars can be thinner in consistency and contain added sugar and other additives. Read the label!

Hot tip! I often recommend nectar (especially pear nectar) for kids who are having issues with constipation. The sorbitol content of some fruit nectars help stimulate bowel movements and is a more natural way to manage constipation than the routine Miralax or other laxatives.

The stars aligned as I made my next stop at Home Goods, a discount home furnishings and cookware store. As I was shopping for decorations to adorn the tables of my daughter’s graduation party, I happened upon some cute popsicle molds. (Yes, I’ve bought cute popsicle molds before, and yes, I have created other popsicle recipes!)

My brain lit up and I started to think about how I could use both peach nectar and popsicle molds…

I came up with a quick Peach Nectar Popsicle recipe that contains vanilla Greek yogurt for a dreamy take on a creamsicle. 

I like to work in some added nutrition when making homemade treats, and that’s what I did here. I decided to include a dairy source to boost the calcium content to an otherwise carbohydrate-based juice pop. If you don’t do dairy, you could substitute a calcium-fortified non-dairy beverage such as soy milk or almond milk instead.

  1. I absolutely love popsicles with my kids. We have fun making them together and they are a great way to enjoy a variety of foods.

    Mark Bittman has a great vegan creamsicle in his VB6 cookbook and we had fun with a cherry chocolate one that used coconut milk from the Little Bites cookbook. We also have a great cookbook called Paletas – we were inspired by that book to buy our first coconut and just made avocado pops (not a hit with the 5 year old, but yes with the 2 year old).

    We will add yours to our “to make” list.

    1. Melissa,
      Great additions–thanks! When I lived in Nashville, there was a paletas shop that was so yummy. The owner had her mainstay offerings but she also had these crazy combinations that were out of this world! Making popsicles is a fun way to explore new flavors with kids!!
