Peach Pops


Today’s weather really isn’t too bad, by that I mean I can handle it. Mostly because I’m inside and our house isn’t on fire. I wanted to make a treat that is kid-friendly and super easy to make and doesn’t have anything to do with the stove! Yep, I made some delicious Peach Pops.

These are very similar to my Very Berry Pops but all about the peaches! I love, love, love peaches probably one of my favorite fruits so I’m pretty excited to be sharing with you this recipe. Plus, I know everyone is crying about how hot it is (it’s ok I’m crying about it too) and I didn’t want to cook this huge meal and make our house hot! We live in 650 sq ft. home so there is no way I’m turning the oven on right now! I know you’re going to love these not only are the healthy and delicious they are also super easy to make. You might be able to have some of your older kids help you. Even the little ones push the button on your food processor! Like I said you’re going to love these! Enjoy!!!
