We had a slow weekend…prepping for tomorrow’s 4th of July BBQ, stopping by the Purcellville farmer’s market (and loading up on veggies and fresh flowers), visiting a new church, romping about our backyard catching fireflies, and just taking it easy together as a family of 4. We only have 10 more weeks (give or take a few, probably give 2, with my baby delivery track record) as a family of 4, and goodness, how I’m trying to cherish this time. Zoe turned 4 in June, and I’m constantly in awe of the big girl she is.
We also worked on some popsicle recipes this weekend. Homemade popsicles are a new favorite summer activity; they’re so simple to make, and satisfying on these feels-like 106 summer days (and it’s something the girls can easily help with in the kitchen). I love being 100% in control of the ingredients. We made blueberry and blackberry yogurt popsicles a few weeks ago, and they were incredibly delicious. BUT the girls’ babysitter made some popsicles with coconut milk last week, and I decided to give peach coconut cream popsicles a try, since we had 2 pecks of fresh peaches we just picked from Great Country Farms.
If you have time to run to the grocery store and farm market for these ingredients before your 4th of July celebrations tomorrow, I highly recommend it! These popsicles are simply scrumptious, especially with the fresh peaches. They’d make the perfect summery addition (with a small pop of red) to your menu! And they’re complex enough even the adults will love them!
Peach Coconut Cream Popsicles with Honey and Cardamom
makes 6 popsicles
1 cup organic full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup organic greek yogurt (optional; to make these dairy free you could use almond milk or keep this out altogether and use just coconut milk)
1/8 cup organic honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 peaches, washed and cut into 1/8-1/4″ slices (keep skin on)
1 tsp cardamom
1. Place coconut milk, yogurt, honey, and vanilla into blender and process until smooth, scraping sides if necessary.
2. Slice peaches and mix with cardamom.
3. To make popsicles, you can either use the whole peach slices and place them directly into the popsicle molds (2-3 slices in each mold), and then pour coconut milk mixture over peaches OR add peaches to blender and blend until desired consistency and then pour mixture into molds. Freeze for several hours (5-6) or overnight.
Using the whole slices adds a pretty visual to the popsicles, and blending the peaches spreads their flavor throughout the popsicles more. I wanted the contrast of the white coconut milk and the peach slices, so I went the route of the peach slices. However, either (or both!) would work. I made an extra batch of the popsicle recipe with blended peaches and just froze it. It was heavenly.
ENJOY, and happy 4th of July!
