 Peach, Strawberry and Lime ice Pops

Perfect for Summer, these Peach, Strawberry and Lime Ice Pops are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and cool you down!  They are loaded with fruit and flavor and they take minutes to prep.  Plus, there’s only six ingredients and they’re low fat.  How can you beat that?

Hey everyone!  How was your weekend?  Remember in my last post I was talking about my fear of pressure cookers growing up and now hubby & I have one?  Well, I decided to break that baby out on Saturday.  I seared off a roast of beef and threw in it the pressure cooker with some tomatoes and other goodies and less than an hour later we were left with the tastiest beef ever! Seriously, so good.  I shredded it and we had tacos.  Perfect Saturday night eats, don’t ya think? So now I’m exciting to thing what I’m gonna make next.  Be prepared to see some recipes for the pressure cooker up on the blog soon 👍

Do you know that ‘Masterchef’ is back on television for another season?  That’s the show where home cooks compete through a series of cooking challenges to win the title of ‘Masterchef.’  That’s another great food related show that hubby & I watch.  Fellow foodies – would you ever want to audition for such a show?  It’s crazy some of the dishes these home cooks come up with.  I’d love to be  behind the scenes to see how it all runs.

So onto the recipe, right?  So, I decided to jump on the ice pop train and make my own version of these babies – Peach, Strawberry and Lime Ice Pops!  It seems that ice pops are around everywhere these days.  Hubby and I were recently at Winner’s and I came across the ice pop molds and I knew I had to get them.  I’m sure hubby was thinking they would just sit at the back of the cupboard collecting dust, gone into the abyss, and never to be seen again.  But nope!  Well, looky looky, here’s some ice pops 😀

I remember having popsicles as a kid, specifically in the summertime.  I’d probably take $2 to the local convenience store and get a little lunch.  I’d ride my bike to the store with my friends, pick out some treats and plop down somewhere to enjoy.  My absolute favourite flavour was pineapple (well, probably still is), followed by orange.  What was your favourite?

What I love about this recipe is that it uses the season’s best.  Take what’s in season, throw it in a blender with some honey, vanilla extract and yogurt and way to go.  All you have to do then is just have the patience to wait until they are set.  It’s basically like a frozen smoothie, in my opinion.

I had waaaay more peaches in the refrigerator than two people can possibly eat, so it was the perfect fruit to use in these ice pops.  Plus, peaches are awesome this time of year, so that never hurts 😉  It’s best to use super ripe peaches and strawberries, if possible ’cause they are the sweetest.  First when I made these, I used a food processor, which is lovely, but ended up with a hot mess because there was too much liquid and when I took the bowl from the unit, there was a mess everywhere, so I suggest using your blender to blitz everything together.

I poured the ice pop mixture through a funnel into the ice pop molds to minimize any mess and just put in the freezer for a few hours.  When ready to eat, just run some hot water over the molds and they should release easily.

These Peach, Strawberry and Lime Ice Pops are not creamy like a fudgesicle, but rather light and refreshing like a popsicle or Mr. Freeze (remember those?)  They have such a fresh flavour and the lime really comes through.  If you want less of a lime flavour, omit the lime zest and just use the juice.

After success with these Peach Strawberry and Lime Ice Pops, my little brain was going on all the possible combinations and, then realized, that it is pretty much limitless!  Who knows what I’m going to make next!  Hope you get a chance to try these sometime this Summer & you get to sit somewhere warm, relax and enjoy.

Have a great week, you guys, and chit chat again soon 🙂 !

    I’m loving all the Popsicles right now, every kind of combination of them, including these ones you e got going on here! Such a beautiful summery combo!

  2. Kathleen | Hapa Nom Nom says:

    I’m so glad you’ll be posting more pressure cooker recipes! My husband got me one a few years ago and I always feel like I’m going to blow the house up using it 😉 From time-to-time he comments how I never use it – perhaps with some awesome recipes from you, I’ll actually put it to good use! Ok, so on to these ice pops! This is such a wonderful summer treat and I’m just loving the fruit combo you’ve got going on. This will certainly be much appreciated this summer as we don’t have AC 😉

      I completely know what you mean, Kathleen! I was so scared too, but getting more used to it. I’m actually going to use mine tomorrow for lamb shanks, I think. I just can’t get over how quick it is to cook stuff and how tender it is. You should try yours. You’ll love it when you get used to it! Thanks for the sweet comment and happy you like the pops! They definitely do go to good use in the warm Summer months…though, it’s still super cold around here yet! Have a lovely weekend!

    I made very similar ice pops with the children last week, without the peaches though (I’ll keep them in mind for next time). The children adored them, I had 10 pops and they were gone in two days (the children in the neighbourhood also helped 🙂 ). I will make them again this weekend and will add some peaches.

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      I’m sure they will love the pops with the peaches as well! So much better than store bought, too! I can imagine that you’re going to become very popular if you’re making these regularly…the kiddos must love you 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Adina! Have a great upcoming weekend!

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Those are the best, aren’t they? Love treats like that too! It’s still cold around here still, particularly in the evenings, but fingers crossed for warmer weather soon…usually for us it’s not until mid July. Thanks, Kathy, and have a great upcoming weekend 🙂

  4. karrie @ Tasty Ever After says:

    Okay, these are the yummiest ice pops I’ve seen in awhile! So smooth and creamy. I’ve got to try them soon. Loving your nail polish too girl (I know you matched them to the color of the pops on purpose 😉 ) Also, very happy you guys had such great success with the new pressure cooker. Wish I lived closer to you because I would have been over to your house in a heartbeat to partake in the taco feast 🙂

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Geez….thanks Karrie! Hahaha….perhaps I did match the polish, lol 😀 Sounds like something I would definitely do 😉 Wish you lived closer too…I’m sure if you did there would be a beaten down trail from one house to the other sampling each other’s food; we do seem to really like the same stuff, that’s for sure! Thanks for the sweet comments, as usual, girl! xo

  5. Kevin | Keviniscooking says:

    I’ve never watched Master Chef, but I do love all those cooking competition shows on the Food Network! I also love popsicles and I’m so glad you jumped on the train. Strawberry and peach sounds like the perfect summer combo!

  7. Lisa says:

    I love Masterchef, it is one of my favorite cooking shows/competitions 🙂 Your popsicles look awesome! I love that they are made with natural flavors and low-fat, you can’t beat that for a nice summer treat! Pinning 🙂

    I totally find pressure cookers to be intimidating! I have never used one personally but my mother uses it all the time.

      So awesome, isn’t it? I was so happy to see that there’s a new season on! I was in the same boat, scared of the pressure cooker, but I just make sure that everything is where it should be and the results are fantastic! Thank-you, Lisa, for the lovely comment and Pin 🙂

  8. Michelle | The Secret Ingredient Is says:

    Excited to see what you come up with using the pressure cooker! Also I haven’t fully committed to Master Chef train yet, but think I need to!

    These pops sound so refreshing – i love the flavors together, so perfect for summer! And love how was they come together – definitely need to make these soon so they can get me through the hot summer days we’re already seeing!

      I know what you mean! Hubby and I watched an episode of Masterchef last night and there’s so many great people on there. Very intense, though, and so little time to make stuff.
      Can’t beat easy Summer recipes, can ya? No hot weather here yet, but hopefully soon! Maybe you could send some our way, lol 😀

      Thanks for the sweet comment, Michelle! Have a lovely week 🙂

  9. Tracy | Baking Mischief says:

    Can’t wait to see your pressure cooker recipes. My pressure cooker lives on a high shelf in my pantry because I have no idea how to use it. It’s probably time to break that bad boy out and learn. 😉

    I love these! I have been so obsessed with popsicles lately as the temps outside just keep climbing. Mmm strawberry and lime is such a good combo. Pinning!

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      I’m so glad I started to use mine. I’ve been thinking about it ever since I had such success with the beef. Now, it’s all things pressure cooker, lol 😀

      I can only dream of warm temps right now and pretend with these pops. Still super cold and we even still have frost in the night time.

      Thanks so much for the comments, Tracy, and the Pin. Appreciate it, girl! Have a great week 🙂

  10. Sarah @ Champagne Tastes says:

    1- I’m terrified that a pressure cooker would blow up in my face.. But I keep seeing cool recipes with them. I guess technically my little espresso machine is pressure cooking my coffee, so maybe I should get over it. Lol.
    2- I honestly have no idea if I’d want to be on a cooking show! I think I might get too nervous being on tv. Or maybe if I could have a cooking partner it would be ok! I wonder about this every time I watch cooking shows lol.
    Aaand of course these sound amazing! It’s hot here now, I need more frozen treats in my life.

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      I was completely terrified to, but slowly working my way up to using it more and more. After success with it this past weekend, I’m thinking I’m going to use it again this weekend…actually looking forward to it, lol.
      I know what you mean…cooking shows are intense. I guess if people were paired up it would be less intimidating.
      Thanks Sarah! It’s definitely not close to being hot here yet, actually kinda chilly, but the sun is out so that’s a good thing 😉 Have a great week, girl!

  11. Danielle says:

    Woah woah woah. Yes these are perfect for summer, but with as delicious as you made them look I’m pretty sure they’re going to be pretty perfect for spring, winter, and fall too. Like seriously, if someone handed me that ice pop in November I WOULD EAT IT!!!

    Dawn, these look perfect for this Southern heat wave we have been having here!!!! I love that they are healthy, but don’t look healthy 🙂 I can trick my daughter into eating these and she would have no idea she was eating something good for her!! I can’t wait to try these! Have a great week!!! Oh and your roast beef sounds amazing! You need to put that recipe up also!

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Thank you so much, Katie! I know…looks can be deceiving, can’t they? I wouldn’t mind eating more than one at a time 🙂 Hope you enjoy ’em! That sounds like a good idea…the beef was delicious! Have a great week too!!

  13. Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary says:

    Congrats on MasterChef-ing the pressure cooker – pun totally intended. 😉 Your dinner sounds delish and I can’t wait to see what you share using your new kitchen bestie here. I haven’t seen master chef, but it is on my list of shows to check out. And no, I never want to audition for that type of show… I’d probably have an anxiety attack! LOVE these ice pops, Dawn! So much fruity deliciousness AND they are healthy? YES YES YES! I’ll take 10. 🙂 Cheers, dear! xo

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Hahaha 😀 Good one, Cheyanne! Love that machine now! Totally getting more comfortable with it, especially after recently using it. What to make next 😉 You have to check out Masterchef! And Chef’s Table! Really good! Thanks for the lovely comments, as usual, girl. xo

  14. Demeter | Beaming Baker says:

    Dawn, first off, lemme say: the color of these pops is gorgeous! Did I ever tell you that I have a special soft spot for all things this color? 🙂
    Woot woot on overcoming that pressure cooker, uh, pressure cooker! Lol. Love that you were able to whip up a fantastic homemade taco night for you and the hubs! Can’t wait to see what you whip up! Can I put in a request for sweets? 🙂
    Masterchef: Oh, dude. Just watching this show makes me all sweaty! No thanks on auditioning! Being behind the scenes def seems way more fun and interesting. 🙂
    Oh… pineapple pops sound soooo good! Mine was chocolate, then strawberry.
    Thanks for sharing yet another delish recipe. Love the new recipe layout, btw. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with. Have a great week, D! <3

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Thanks Demeter! I love that colour too. I think pink may be my fav! I also lean towards it. Actually I have bright pink pants on today, lol!
      Sweets in the pressure cooker? That sounds interesting and totally doable. May have to experiment with that one 😉
      I know what you mean about Masterchef! So much commotion. I wouldn’t mind taste testing some of those meals, either 🙂
      Thanks for the sweet comments, girl!! Have a great week too! xo

  15. David @ Spiced says:

    Oh, I am digging these pops, Dawn! I love peach anything and everything…so the peach + strawberry combo is making my mouth water. Nice addition of a little lime in there, too! But roast beef in a pressure cooker…in an hour? Ok. That’s it. I need to learn how to use my pressure cooker now! It’s sitting in the basement all by itself, but you’ve convinced me to pull it out! 🙂

  16. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says:

    That’s awesome that you used your pressure cooker with great success! Your meal sounds like it was delicious. I don’t have a pressure cooker, but I would love to try it out. You may just be convincing me that I need to do so! 🙂 Now onto these pop…yum! This is such a fun flavor, Dawn! I love combination of fruits in here. Making homemade pops is pretty much the best summer treat. Wish I had one (or three) of these cuties!

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      I know. I’m already talking about what I’m going to try next! I just couldn’t believe how quick it was and the results. It was as if the meat had been cooking all day long! Thanks so much, Gayle! I would happily give you the whole batch 🙂
