Peach Pie Popsicles

Peach Pie Popsicles // take a megabite

The other day, while eating on the patio of a local brewery, I glanced over and saw a truck drive by with two shiba inu pups looking out at me; one white one and one tan one. I felt so lucky to get to see those cute little guys! I’m so glad I looked! I also feel lucky to live in a world where peaches exist. They’re just really pretty, and so tasty. And they are extra good right now! I’ve been buying them left and right. Making them into sliders and blending them up into ice pops.

Peach Pie Popsicles // take a megabite

A couple years ago, I made a peach pie granita, and so I took that idea and popsicle-ed it. I stirred in the whipped cream, but you could always just dollop it in there for more swirly-twirly pops. But basically these taste like pie without having the oven on for an hour. Feel free to serve it with pie crust pieces, or crumbles, or ice cream! Top the hell out of these. Treat them like the pie they taste like.

Shibas?!? I’m so jealous. I love those little guys!

And I have to say, I love your recipe writing. “* Dip the end of a spoon in the bottle and drip-drop it in the blender.” Such a great description of what you really need to do to get a few drops of almond extract. Love it.

My eyes have been opened. Coffee and popsicles. Not coffee IN popsicles (also good). But WITH PIE POPSICLES.

I’m going to have a coffee and popsicles morning.

I literally stopped in my tracks and gasped when I was walking down the street the other day because I saw a shiba on someone’s balcony! They’re sweet like peaches. I totally see why you related the two.
