One of my favorite things about summer is the fresh berries and fruit in season. There's nothing like biting into a juicy summer peach or a ripe strawberry (and they are even sweeter when they are wild)! When I think back on my summers as a kid, peaches come to mind. I couldn't wait to go to the the farmer's market or grocery store with my mom and find the juiciest peaches. This is an experience I want to share with my children, too. Well... and let's be honest, I'm still a kid at heart, too! Peaches for the whole family!
It's not always easy to get ripe or juicy peaches in the midwest. That's why we've created a summer snack that is delicious, easy, and fun! This is the perfect recipe to use a bruised, over or underripe peach. We added strawberries for a yummy twist, but you can use a variety of fruits based on what's in season and available.
If you have kids and don't have a popsicle mold, you're missing out! You can usually get molds for about the same price as store-bought popsicles made with fruit. If you don't have popsicle molds, you can use wooden popsicle sticks and paper cups. Making your own popsicles allows you to cut out added sugar, use bruised and overripe fruit, and of course, make memories!
Pair this summer treat with sunshine and shorts!
