Pop Culture: Make Fresh Peach and White Grape Popsicles

Fresh Peach & White Grape PaletasFresh Peach & White Grape PaletasIt's National Peach Month! In honor of this amazing fruit I wanted to celebrate with a special treat with my family. We love peaches in all forms so this was the perfect celebration for us! We took some fresh white peaches and white grape juice and created the perfect summer treat: paletas! Imagine these flavors in popsicle form. My kids went wild for these peach popsicles.

In Mexico, paletas are made of different natural fruit flavors. On our recent visit to the paleteria, the kids learned all about these Mexican popsicles. I didn't see a peach-flavored paleta so I wanted to create it for the kids. I knew the flavors and texture of fresh peaches in the popsicle would be very appealing to them.

Peaches come in yellow and white. My favorite have always been white peaches. I find that white peaches have more of a crunch and are so flavorful. I like to think they are the granny smith of peaches with that perfect crunch. As a parent I look for creative ways my kids can enjoy different fruits in their most natural state. This popsicle calls for 2 ingredients and can be swapped with various fruits to make all year round!

Munching on peach popsicles are delicious for the whole family!

Here is the "how to" on making these delicious two-ingredient popsicles.

Ingredients
White peaches
White grape juice
Popsicle molds

Directions
1. Wash and peel your peaches. If you peach is on the larger side you may only need one. Then slice peach to the pit to create slices large enough to fit in your popsicle molds. Cutting strips or cubes works great too.

2. Stuff your molds with the peaches. Arrange them up against the wall of the mold for a pretty look when frozen. The more fruit the better. We were able to stack 4-5 slices in each mold.

3. After all the molds are stuffed with peach slices, fill with white grape juice. We used a light version of grape juice and that worked great too. You can also dilute the juice if you feel it's too sweet. Secure lids on popsicle molds and freeze. For best results, freeze overnight.
