You might have the last few fresh and local peaches at your farmers markets or grocers. If you don’t, snag some from your freezer. This is a good reminder of summer weather before the fall settles in.
Peach Melba Popsicles
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup whole raspberries
- 2 cups peeled chopped peaches in small/medium chunks, fresh or frozen
- 1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt or non-dairy vanilla ice cream of your choice, slightly softened (think: soft-serve consistency) Or peach ice cream (https://scrumptiousbits.com/2018/08/29/nectarine-ice-cream/)
Heat sugar and water in a medium pot. Once dissolved, pour 1/4 of the syrup over the bowl of raspberries.
Add the peaches to the remaining syrup in the pot and simmer on low until soft.
Blend the peaches with the syrup and set aside.
Blend the raspberries with their syrup and set aside.
Now assemble the popsicles by adding a little bit of raspberry puree, a little of the peach purée and then add the ice cream. Freeze overnight and then enjoy!
