Ginger Peach Popsicles

Nothing says SUMMER more than Popsicles

Ok – I lie. To you there may be something that says “summer” more than a few delicious minutes of heavenly goodness on a stick. BUT, you do have to agree that these Ginger Peach Ice Pops just shout “summer” from the hilltops!

My CSA is in full swing & my Grandmother is visiting from Florida. One of the flavors I associate with my Dad’s Mom is ginger. I don’t know if she was always a lover of ginger, but in recent years she seems to always love ginger (candied ginger, ginger snaps, etc). So when I had a bowl of peaches & wanted to make a easy dessert snack for my parents & Grandma, Oh My Veggie’s beautiful popsicles were just perfect!

Rich thought these were a little too gingery (he associates ginger with sushi and not much else) but I thought they were just perfect – a bit of a ginger bite to them but so sweet and fresh from all that peach – YUM :-)

  1. I don’t think you are lying. Indeed, this is summer in a stick, or a plastic stick for that matter…I love peaches. can’t wait to try how ginger will have an effect on the flavor. I am sure it will be really soothing..and refreshing. Great idea to combine peach and ginger ;)

  2. I definitely associate cornmeal with my mother, especially in cookies and cakes! I’m having serious separation anxiety from my immersion blender, but I’ll be returning home (to it! my darling!) at the tail end of summer so I’ll certainly be squeezing these in. Especially for my best friend – ginger makes me think of her!

    • Sophie – Fresh Ginger is so easy to get & totally affordable, so I would suggest going that route! If you really can’t get fresh (and the flavor of powdered will be much different than the fresh) – my guess would be about 1/2 teaspoon? GOOD LUCK – let me know what you think

      • Thanks! My usual grocery store doesn’t typically carry ginger. I’ll try and get it elsewhere, but it’s good to know about the powder in case I get everything else on hand and the perfect moment to make it :o)

  5. I wanted to make these for a party (amongst other popsicle flavors), and discovered that with the size of my peaches, I didn’t get the quantity I was hoping for… I find it hard to believe that this really made six full servings on two peaches. I had to add a little extra water and a dash of pineapple juice to bump up the servings some to avoid another grocery trip–still tasted great, but will definitely want to try making these as directed in the future and will just buy more peaches.

    • Natalie – I think we might have had some big peaches last year!! I hope the flavor still was good – sounds like you made it work (and a popsicle party sounds like a great time)!!!
