Peach-Raspberry Popsicles (And a lamentation on Summer)

Popsicles (Peach Raspberry)

It’s only August, but it seems like Summer is already starting to wrap up. The mornings are beginning to become cooler and it’s almost time to start thinking about school. So to push off Fall and stay wrapped up in the hot weather and lazy Summer days that we love (and that you surely love, too), we made a dessert that brings to mind all of those disgustingly hot, headache inducing and sweat-causing days of Summer: popsicles.

To be specific, they’re peach raspberry popsicles, two fruits that are the BEST during these few months of summer. And gosh, were they delicious—helping us fight off those last waves of heat and the oncoming thoughts of fall, homework, and cold weather. I know, you probably think that we’re crazy for thinking that Summer is almost over, but in the next month, we are visiting colleges, finishing up homework for AP classes, and (thankfully) going to art camp. Before we know it we’ll be sitting in school listening to countless lectures and doodling in our notebooks.

So here, eat these popsicles—if not for the delicious refreshment that they provide, then for the two of us in the hope that they will somehow prolong our Summer vacation that seems to be rushing by much too fast.

Ingredients: Makes four 1/3 cup popsicles

  • 2 ripe peaches
  • 1 1/2 cups of raspberries
  • 1/4 cup + 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon + 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Puree the peaches and raspberries separately and place the purees in separate bowls. Add 1/4 cup of yogurt and 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar to the raspberries and mix well. Add 1/4 cup of yogurt and 1 teaspoon of sugar to the to the peach puree and mix well.

Pour a layer of peach puree into a popsicle mold and then a layer of rasperry. Pour in another layer of peach and then another layer of raspberry, repeating until the mold is full. Repeat for the remaining popsicle molds. Place them in the freezer overnight or for about 4-6 hours.
