Peach Vanilla Ice Pops
Updated: Jan 4
Here is a flavor of ice pop that I’ll bet you did not have growing up.
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons Sugar
4 cups sliced peeled ripe peaches (about 4 medium) or 16 ounces frozen sliced peaches, thawed
3/4 cup Half-and-Half
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 teaspoons Orange Liqueur (Optional)
Place sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Transfer syrup to a small bowl, and chill.
Purée syrup and peaches in a food processor until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a medium pitcher; strain, pressing on solids to extract about 2 1/4 cups purée. Whisk in remaining ingredients.
Divide among molds. Freeze 30 minutes, insert wooden or plastic sticks, and freeze until solid, about 12 hours. Dip bottoms of molds into hot water for 20 to 30 seconds to loosen pops.
