Yesterday I took a recipe from Bon Appetit magazine and tweaked it just a bit to make some popsicles……popsicles have become my summer addiction. I eat one every night!
For the original recipe go HERE.
My recipe is below, basically the same, but not quite.
Peach-Vanilla Cream Pops
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
- 4 medium sliced peeled ripe peaches
- 1/2 cup chilled heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup Greek-style yogurt
- 2 tablespoons Disaronno amaretto
popsicle molds or Dixie cups and sticks
(my popsicle molds came from K-Mart)
Place sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; add bean. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Transfer syrup to a small bowl; chill. (I put my syrup in the freezer and let it chill while I did the next step)
Discard vanilla bean.
Purée syrup and peaches in a food processor until smooth. Whisk in remaining ingredients. Divide among molds. Cover; insert ice-pop sticks. Freeze until firm. Dip bottoms of molds into hot water for 20-30 seconds to loosen pops.
Remove pops from molds and serve.
