Peaches and Cream Popsicles

There’s nothing like eating a sweet, juicy, ripe peach on a hot summer day – but these peaches and cream popsicles made with yogurt, almond milk and almond extract make a wonderful treat on a hot day like today.

It’s in the nineties today, the kind of day where you want to either sit in front of the air conditioner and never leave the house, or swim in the pool all day – we opted for the latter.

I’ve been thinking about making a peach dessert combined with almond extract – because I love the smell of my peach-almond facial scrub, so I came up with this easy dessert using really ripe sweet peaches, unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze[1] almond milk and almond extract – delish! And by the way, Almond Breeze now comes in single size servings and is hosting a giveaway on Skinny Bits[2]. Click here[3] for a chance to win.

I used raw sugar to sweeten these, but you could sweeten them with stevia or whichever sweetener you prefer. My star shaped ice pop mold[4], which you can find on Amazon makes 4 oz popsicles, so depending on the size of your popsicle mold, you may get different amounts.

Calories: 78 • Fat: 0.5 g • Carb: 17 g • Fiber: 1 g • Protein: 2 g • Sugar: 16.5 g
Sodium: 59 mg (without salt) • Cholest: 1.3 mg


  • 3 medium peaches
  • 1/2 cup 2% Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup sugar (I used raw, or your favorite sweetner)
  • 1/3 cup Almond Breeze vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine salt


Halve and pit the peaches. Cut the peach halves into 1/4-inch dice until you have 1 cup. Place the diced peaches in a bowl; set aside.

Cut the remaining peaches into rough 1-inch chunks and place in the blender. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth, scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Pour the mixture into the bowl with the diced peaches and mix to combine.

Divide the mixture evenly into the popsicle molds, or disposable small plastic cups. Insert the sticks and freeze until solid, at least 5 to 6 hours.

Just Peachy Green Smoothie

At least 3 to 4 days a week, I start my morning with a green smoothie because it’s a quick way to enjoy a nutritious breakfast without having to cook a thing. Just throw everything in the blender and breakfast is ready in less than a minute. I especially love this time of year when stone fruits are in season, especially sweet juicy peaches.

Which is the perfect time to make this delicious smoothie, because frozen peaches just aren’t the same. For this protein packed liquid breakfast, I combined the peaches (skin and all) with a frozen ripe banana, some hemp seeds for extra protein, almond milk and baby spinach (you can’t taste it, I promise!) My toddler loves green smoothies and always reminds me to buy spinach when I’m out (cracks me up!).

I often get asked about my blender, and I can’t say enough good things about my Blendtec Total Blender. I never really knew what I was missing until I owned it, and now I’m not sure I could ever live without it. It’s so powerful, perfect for whipping up smoothies and so much more. If you don’t have one, no worries, I used to use my magic bullet and it worked just fine. But if you want to own one, and can’t really afford it, you’re in luck! I am hosting a Countdown to Summer Pin-It-To-Win-It Contest[1] on Pinterest and Blendtec[2] was generous
enough to sponsor the prize. TWO lucky people have the chance to win a
Blendtec Total Blender Classic Wildside[3] plus the twister jar, each valued over $450.00. If you want to test your luck, see details here[4] (you never know!)

And just one note about counting points in smoothies, as per Weight Watchers[5] the official answer is yes, you should count the fruit when you calculate the recipe in recipe builder when making smoothies. That being said, I’ve been told many WW leaders don’t. One WW leader mentioned on my Facebook page[6]:

Mango Banana Green Smoothie

Start the morning RIGHT with the super delicious, creamy green smoothie made with frozen banana, baby spinach, fresh mango, hemp seeds and unsweetened almond milk.

I usually start my mornings with a big green smoothie, so I’m loving the new Superfood Smoothies [1]book, by Julie Morris and LOVED this recipe! While thumbing through her book, their were several recipes with ingredients I don’t usually have on hand, and hemp seeds was one of them. But I’ve been curious about them, because I was looking for more ways to add protein to my smoothies without using yogurt, so off to the health food store I went to pick some up.

Guess what, they are really DELICIOUS, similar to the taste of raw sunflower seeds. They are one of the best sources of protein on the planet according to Julie, and include all 8 essential amino acids. The recipe below is for two, but if your making this for yourself, just divide the recipe. Be sure to freeze your bananas so your smoothie is thick, almost like the texture of a milkshake.

If you’re wondering where to find raw shelled hemp seeds, I’ve seen them at Costco, my local Organic Supermarket, the health food aisle of my supermarket, or you can order them on Amazon[2]. Be sure they are shelled and unsalted. Of course if you wish you can sub them out for another seed such as sunflower or flax.

This will be on my regular rotation from now on, and I love that it’s 4 points plus on Weight Watchers for 16 oz, plus it’s perfect for dairy-free, clean, vegetarian, gluten-free, and Paleo-friendly.
