It’s summer time and you know what that means! It’s time to enjoy the sun, make some delicious popsicles, and be healthy. These Skinny Peach Pie Popsicles are a perfect way to cool down this summer while still feeling satisfied. With just few calories per pop, these will be your new favorite treat for hot days.
Before we get started, you will want to gather the following ingredients
¼ cup sugar substitute (or honey) ¾ tsp pie spice ½ teaspoon cinnamon ⅛ teaspoon salt ⅓ cup unsweetened almond milk or other non-dairy milk of choice ¼ cups peach puree from canned peaches OR fresh peeled and chopped ripe peaches if desired. Note that this is not a 100% fruit popsicle recipe! It has less than 50g per serving which meets FDA guidelines for safe consumption levels of added sugars without subsequent health risks. If using frozen packs of peach slices instead of canned whole peaches, reduce total liquid amount below by about one tablespoonful—that includes both the ginger ale and non-dairy milk quantity
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into popsicle molds or paper cups, leaving about an inch from the top of the mold for expansion in freezing. Add lid to mold (if using) or cover with Paper Cup Lid (if using). Insert pop sticks through bottom of cup once frozen solid. Freeze at least eight hours before serving.*
Makes four servings–about two Popsicles per person!
*Recipe Notes:* For a more tart flavor profile, add another tablespoonful of sugar substitute like Stevia if desired when blending liquid ingredients together.*For even more nutrition*, throw some fresh fruit on top after pouring mixture into popsicle molds.*
Time to make–about five minutes prep time and then freeze overnight/eight hours in the freezer. Icing is optional, but it’s how we keep cool this summer 😉
