Sweet Peach and Coconut Cream Popsicles

Sweet Peach and Coconut Cream Popsicles are the perfect solution for that cold treat craving on a steamy, hot summer day. These popsicles have only five ingredients and come together in only two to three hours in the freezer. They are easy to make, delicious to eat and the best part, they are low in carbs (our nemesis for those of us on a low-carb keto lifestyle).

This recipe is so easy to make even young children can help you with it. Check it out…

  • 3-4 Fresh Peaches-For my recipe I used Donut Peaches which are one of my favorite. However, regular home grown Clingstone peaches will work just fine. Where I live it is sometimes hard to find Donut Peaches so don’t feel that using the donut peach is a must for this recipe. Either type will work well.
  • 1-13.5 Ounce can of Coconut Cream-This will add a delicious, creamy, low-carb base to our popsicles. Unlike the thinner, watery version of it’s sister, Coconut Milk, Coconut Cream has a silky, rich texture and distinct coconut flavor.
  • 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt-Added to temper the flavor of the coconut cream and add a little more thickness to the popsicles.
  • 1 Tablespoon of Splenda Brown Sugar-Added for flavor to the cut peaches with 1 Tablespoon of butter. I cook the peaches briefly on the stove to soften them before mixing them with the coconut and yogurt.

There are a few steps we need to go through to make these popsicles but honestly, it’s not complicated.

  • Prepare The Peaches-As I mentioned, I used Donut Peaches for these popsicles. However, since I remove the skin before I cut the peaches and Donut Peaches are smaller than regular peaches, I had to use my handy-dandy old school technique of blanching the peaches to remove the skin.This technique is relatively simple and consists of boiling a pot of water, placing the peaches in it and then draining the water and immediately placing the peaches into a cold bath (I added the cold water and ice cubes back into the pot. It worked just as well as having a separate bowl of cold water). After cooling the peaches the skin can be easily removed then cut into small, bite-sized pieces.
  • Saute’ the cut up peaches in the Butter and Brown Sugar– Melt the butter in a small frying pan then add the cut-up Peaches. Sprinkle Splenda Brown Sugar over the peach pieces and saute for five minutes. This will soften the peaches and add a nice, sweet flavor while keeping our carb count minimal,
  • Mix the yogurt and coconut cream-In a mixing bowl combine these two ingredients until well blended. Note: The coconut cream initially will be a little “loose” so you will need to mix both ingredients well to get the consistency smooth.
  • Combine Peaches with coconut cream mixture-Mix until just blended. Try to make sure the cut peaches are dispersed evenly throughtout the coconut mixture.
  • Pour Coconut Cream and Peach micture into molds-Carefully scoop the mixture into each popsicle mold. Make sure you get an equal amount of peached into each mold. Once evenly distributed place the molds into the freezer for an hour. Once the hour is up, remove the molds from the freezer and insert a popsicle stick into each mold and place back into the freezer. Freeze for at least a total of six hours or for good measure, freeze over night.
Pour peach mixture into molds then freeze

You might think there is an obvious answer to this question, however, not so quick my friends. I found out the hard way what not to do when these were done freezing. For my photo shoot for this blog I “cleverly” put the frozen molds into my sink which had hot water in it. I thought this would help the popsicles melt quickly so I could remove them from the molds. Well, after about 15 minutes in the hot water, melt they did. Unfortunately when I tried to pull one popsicle out of the mold half of it stayed behind as a melted mess! Note to self: Run warm water over the frozren mold for three to four minutes until you can pull each popsicle out by the stick. You might have to wiggle the stick a few times to loosen it up.

Once the popsicles are out of the mold it is time to enjoy the “fruits of your labor” (no pun intended). These popsicles are not super sweet but they do have a blend of coconut and peachy crispness. Depending on which part you bite into will determine the flavor you get. I hope you try these out and I hope you like them as much as I do. Enjoy!
