I know spring has only just begun but summer comes before we know it in South Carolina. The summer heat here is often oppressive so we’ve already started thinking about the refreshing treats we’ll need for those long, hot summer days.
Peaches and Cream Popsicles are creamy and refreshing. They are exactly what we need for those long, hot summer days and ridiculously humid nights.
Fresh, sweet South Carolina peaches are a local delicacy in summer. The peaches we get at the farmers market are white fleshed and juicy.
The juices run down your face and your arms it’s crazy! My husband has developed the “lean” so the juices fall to the ground and not down his shirt. Peaches are the best local summer fruit.
I have a Popsicle Mold I invested in a few years ago but you can use small paper cups if that works better for your needs. If you don’t have the wooden Popsicle sticks, simply serve it like a frozen parfait. These cute little wooden spoons bring back some nostalgia for me and ice cream cups.
