Summertime is the perfect time for frozen treats!

Who loves to enjoy creamy, icy treats? I do! I am a true lover of ice cream, popsicles, sherbet, frozen yogurt and really anything else that is cold, dreamy and perfect on a hot summer day. What’s not to like? I am all about enjoying life and the little things that bring you joy. No guilt here, life is too short.

The great thing about enjoying treats is you can make them healthy. Real food doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer to make, but that’s okay … it’s worth the wait. Yes, it could possibly be easier to run out to the ice cream truck or grab a packaged box from the grocery freezer aisle … but is it really worth it? Life is precious and our bodies cannot recognize the food dyes, corn syrups and artificial flavorings in commercialized treats.

You don’t have to miss out on those nostalgic creamsicles though! They are so easy to make at home. All you need is some simple + basic real food ingredients. Peaches!!! We’re talking whole fruit here … beautiful, juicy summer peaches. A small amount of raw honey, a little bit of vanilla, some tart, fresh lime juice and some tangy + creamy cultured sour cream.

You might be thinking, did she mean to write sour cream? Why yes I did. I like to add some extra health benefits to treats when I can. I use real, true sour cream – which is full of probitoics {I’ve included a dairy-free version too for those who can’t have dairy}. Not all sour creams are created equal though, most store-bought sour creams do not have a high probiotic content. The majority are not made with grass-fed dairy either. So make sure to look for a brand that is a true sour cream, with organic, grass-fed dairy.

Sour cream adds a lovely, tangy creaminess to these creamsicles. It’s the perfect balance … a little bit of sweet, a little bit of tang, a little bit of tart, and a whole lot of flavor.

So go ahead and indulge in this summertime classic treat. Enjoy every bite!

Peach Lime Creamsicles
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 10 oz. or about 2 cups fresh or frozen organic peaches, peeled and pitted {make sure to thaw frozen}
  • ½ - ¾ cup filtered water
  • 2 cups cultured sour cream, crème fraiche, or thick full-fat yogurt {for dairy-free version, see Notes}
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice {approx. the juice of 1 lime}
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup raw light-colored honey {I use local clover, use more honey if you prefer it sweeter}
Instructions
  1. Peel peaches and remove the pits. If using frozen peaches, thaw the peaches.
  2. Add peaches and ½ cup {or more depending on what your blender needs to puree it} filtered water to a blender. Blend until pureed and no chunks remain. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, lime juice, vanilla and honey. Stir until completely incorporated and honey is fully dissolved. [Note: If you're using a thicker honey, let the jar sit in hot water until it becomes a thinner consistency. I used a local creamed clover honey that is very easy to mix.] At this point you can do a taste test and add more honey if you prefer it sweeter.
  4. Have your popsicle molds ready to fill. To get a marbled effect, you will need a spoon and will need to alternate the sour cream mixture and blended peach mixture. To assemble, use a spoon to add about a tablespoon of sour cream to 1 popsicle mold. Add some peach mixture. Keep alternating the mixtures until you have filled the popsicle mold. Repeat until all popsicle molds are filled. It sounds complicated but it's really very simple. It takes less than 5 minutes to fill all of the popsicle molds.
  5. Place full popsicle molds in the freezer for at least 6-8 hours, best overnight.
  6. When frozen, briefly run popsicle mold under warm water to help release the popsicle from the mold.
Notes
Yield: Finished popsicle yield varies. I can usually fill about 6-8 popsicle molds.

Dairy Free Version: You'll need coconut cream {from the tops of approx. 1-2 cans of full-fat coconut milk OR this awesome coconut cream from Aroy-D works wonderful} to replace the cream. 1. The night before you want to make the popsicles, place cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator. I recommend placing 3 cans in the refrigerator just incase one can doesn't quite form enough cream at the top. Sometimes coconut milk doesn't have the right fat content, so not enough cream forms at the top. While you're at it, place a large mixing bowl in the fridge to chill to use the next day for the coconut whipped cream. 2. Remove the chilled mixing bowl and coconut milk cans from the refrigerator taking care not to shake them or tilt them. Remove the lids and scrape off the top, thick white layer which is the coconut cream. Add the coconut cream to the chilled mixing bowl. You can freeze the remaining coconut water for later use in smoothies or other popsicles. 3. Using a mixer on low speed, beat the coconut cream for about 30 seconds until it starts to become creamy and thickens slightly. Then add the vanilla and raw honey and continue to beat on medium speed for about 1 minute or until the coconut cream has become whipped and thick. Follow the above directions for filling the popsicle molds.

Notes: I prefer Nancy's sour cream because of their practices; it's a true organic, grass-fed sour cream, full of probiotics.
