Back to school might be right around the corner, but that doesn't mean summer (or it's temperatures) are going anywhere anytime soon! We have totally been surviving by playing in the sprinkler every afternoon and eating as many popsicles as we possibly can! My favorite childhood popsicle flavor has to be a dreamsicle because it basically has ice cream in the middle which combines the best of both worlds. My peach dreamsicle pops with goat cheese and thyme are a delicious twist on a summertime classic and you have to try them out!
If you follow me on social media, then you know you are more than likely going to see a diaper wearing baby running crazy in the backyard...and nine times out of ten, the sprinkler is always going! Despite the temperatures being over 100 degrees over the weekend, we were outside ninety percent of the time if Parks was awake because that's where he is the happiest, which in turn makes our life a little easier! Popsicles seem to go hand in hand with our backyard adventures because what better way to cool down than with a yummy pop in hand?
I love making homemade popsicles because they are super easy and you can make the most delicious treats with real ingredients that you can feel good about your kiddos (and you) eating!
Peaches are at their peak right now and combined with the creamy goat cheese and herby thyme, it's just the best combination of flavors! You are going to love these popsicles!
- 2 Cups of Sliced and Peeled Peaches
- 2 Tbsp. Honey
- 1 Cup of Whole Milk (or full fat coconut milk for a non-dairy alternative)
- 4 oz. Goat Cheese
- 1 Tbsp. Fresh Thyme (about 6 sprigs)
- In a medium saucepan, combine peaches with 1 tbsp. of honey and heat over medium heat until peaches break down slightly and release some liquid. Turn off heat.
- Puree the peaches and set aside.
- In another medium saucepan combine milk, 1 tbsp. of honey, and thyme and heat over medium heat careful to not bring to a boil.
- Crumble goat cheese in the milk mixture and whisk until combined and cheese has melted.
- Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
- In a popsicle mold pour the peaches in all molds until they are filled halfway up.
- Fill the rest of the mold with the goat cheese, thyme and milk mixture.
- The liquids will swirl slightly, which is what you want.
- Place into the freezer overnight or at least six hours.
These popsicles are soooo good guys! Parks and I both ate two in the first sitting because one just wasn't enough! These are a must-make before summer (and peach season) is over!
