Sweetened only with fruit, these Peach Melba Homemade Pops are a perfect healthy snack, breakfast, or dessert! For less than 40 calories, you can enjoy the cool and creamy blend of peaches, raspberries, and vanilla in a simple, 5-minute treat that’s loaded with nutritious, clean eating ingredients!
You guys…it’s officially HOT here in Central Virginia! And on a humid, steamy day there’s just nothing that tastes better than icy cold homemade pops!
But these aren’t just any pops — I wanted to showcase some of Virginia’s finest summer produce — peaches and raspberries!
We love to visit the local farms to pick-our-own strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and peaches at this time of year (or scoop them up by the wagon-full at the farmer’s market), so I’m always looking for new or different ways to enjoy the sweet fruit. These frozen treats are so healthy and so delicious, that you’ll want to eat them for breakfast, snack, AND dessert!
Plus, they’re 100% kid-approved!
Do you see that peach in his hand? Yep, he was stealing the props from my photo shoot while I was still taking pictures! I swear, this juicy fruit is too good to resist!
If you’ve never had a “real” Peach Melba dessert, then let me fill you in: it’s a simple-yet-delicious dessert made with peaches, raspberry sauce, and vanilla ice cream. Summer perfection, right?!
Well I just borrowed those same flavors but put them all into a blender and created these tasty frozen pops…in about 5 minutes FLAT (not including freezing time, of course)! That’s the hardest part…waiting for them to freeze!
To keep the pops light and healthy, while still packed with creamy vanilla flavor, I used my favorite smoothie ingredient: Unsweetened Vanilla Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk. Paired with thick, rich Greek yogurt and some additional vanilla extract, it’s the perfect low-calorie replacement for the ice cream in a typical Peach Melba.
Do you (or your kids) have a raging sweet tooth? These pops get their sweetness only from the fruit, so if your fruit isn’t particularly sweet (or if you prefer a more dessert-like flavor), just add a couple of honey until they taste perfect for YOUR tastebuds. You just can’t go wrong with this classic flavor combination!
