Nectarine Ice Pops Recipe

It’s August, it’s hot, and it’s (REALLY) humid. Clearly this calls for ice pops – nectarine ice pops, to be exact!

These Nectarine Popsicles are the perfect healthy and refreshing summer snack!

This is this month’s sponsored Almond Breeze partnership creation, and it features my favorite of their products: coconut almondmilk. It’s like vacation in a glass – or, in this case, on a stick.

This is basically the easiest recipe ever – besides the almondmilk, the only other ingredients are chopped fresh nectarines (SO good right now) and a little pure maple syrup for extra sweetness. Peaches or apricots would also be delicious in this recipe, or even a mix of all three – feel free to get creative! You can toss in some berries for color, too – blueberries or chopped strawberries would be a pretty and tasty addition.

nectarine ice pops ingredients

To make these ice pops, you’ll blend some of the nectarines with the almondmilk and maple syrup. Then, place some additional finely chopped nectarines into an ice pop mold to add some nice texture, pour the blended mixture on top, and freeze! Adding some un-blended fruit into the mix is key, because we all know ice pops with large chunks of fruit are cooler than ice pops without large chunks of fruit. Am I right?!

    Anne, what brand popsicle mold is that that you used? I googled it but not sure I found the right one. I like that shape :)

    Popsicles are one of my favorite weekend treats! They have a bunch of popsicle carts in SF that show up at farmers markets and food truck festivals, and I always make a beeline to them. I’ve never tried making them at home though!

      That’s awesome! Love the whole artisan food truck movement – such an upgrade from the old standard food trucks in touristy areas (aka old weird hot dogs, etc.)

    I never knew I could get so excited about popsicles! These really look good.
