Peaches and Cream Popsicles

Nutrition Fact: August is National Peach Month.  Frozen fruit is a refreshing and healthy way to satisfy your children’s sweet tooth all summer long, and makes for a great after school snack. Peaches are high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps protect again illness and chronic disease; vitamin A, which promotes healthy vision; and potassium, important for bone development and maintaining low blood pressure.

Makes: 6 Popsicles

Ingredients

3 medium peaches

1/2 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup skim milk

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Halve and pit the peaches. Cut the peach halves into 1/4-inch dice until you have 1 cup. Place the diced peaches in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Cut the remaining peaches into rough 1-inch chunks and place in the blender.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth, scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Pour the mixture into the bowl with the diced peaches and mix to combine.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly into Popsicle molds, or disposable small plastic cups. Insert the sticks and freeze until solid, at least 5 to 6 hours.
