White Peach Pops

Not sure what to do with overripe fruit? Make a popsicle! They are surprisingly easy to make and freeze in just about four hours. Instead of buying the sugar- and chemical-filled frozen pops at your supermarket, try creating your own with fresh seasonal fruit. Play around with the combination below, maybe using strawberries or everyday peaches instead. Just remember to add a liquid (like water or fruit juice) if your fruit has a low water content.

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ cup of water

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
