Peach Orange Popsicles

Peach Orange Popsicles

Continuing with the summer spirit, and because it’s 100 degrees out, popsicles seemed like a good, or should I say excellent idea to make. Because I only turned on the stove for 10 minutes, I didn’t add any unnecessary extra heat to my day :). Maybe you think it’s a little exaggerated on my part, but it’s really hot, and I have no air conditioning ;)
I few weeks back, my boyfriend decided he wanted us to make mojito popsicles, because we want to host a 14th of July gathering at home to watch the super fireworks show the city of Paris puts on to celebrate their Bastille Day. So we bought popsicle molds (you can find really cheap ones on Amazon by the way), and I forgot about this subject.
Only this week, with all the heat, I suddenly remembered we had those so I decided to make us some delicious treat. Because it’s my first time doing this, and because alcohol doesn’t freeze as well, I made a first virgin popsicle batch. With summer fruits, and colors. I went with peach and orange, a little vanilla, a little sugar... you can’t go wrong really.

I chose these flavors, first because I had peaches and oranges in my fridge (!!), and second because the flavors take me back home, to summer vacation, when we would make orange peach smoothies all day long!

The good news about making these, is that if you don’t have the molds, you can always use plastic or paper cups as molds! There are no excuses not to make these delicious and refreshing snacks!

After they start to set insert the wooden sticks (if you do this at the beginning they won’t hold up!)
Freeze for no less than 3 hours.
