From the kitchen: Bourbon Peaches ‘n Cream Popsicles

June 12, 2013




Stone fruit season is here again! And that makes this girl very happy. It means a season of pies, tarts, and frozen desserts galore – starting with these bourbon peaches ‘n cream popsicles. I was inspired by some close friends of ours who were brewing tasty bourbon peach beer recently. This grown-up popsicle is delicious, refreshing, and just a tad boozy. Bourbon kissed peaches are blended with greek yogurt and sugary syrup, then frozen for a cool summer treat. And since I used low fat yogurt in lieu of milk or cream, they’re actually quite healthy too! Win win! Enjoy!



Bourbon Peaches ‘n Cream Popsicles

Makes about 14 popsicles using this mold


¼ cup bourbon whiskey

1 cup roughly chopped ripe peaches + 1/2 cup finely chopped peaches

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

2 cups plain Greek yogurt


Combine sugar and water in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil until sugar dissolves. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely in pan.

While syrup cools, peel and chop peaches, reserving 1/2 cup for later use. In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup peaches and bourbon. Stir and let sit for 30 minutes. Add syrup in tablespoon increments to taste, about 1/4 cup is what I used. Add yogurt to the mixture and stir well to combine.

Puree the mixture using a food processor or blender. Pour mixture into popsicle molds and divide reserved chopped peaches among molds for added peachy texture. Freeze for at least 6-8 hours.

NOTE: You can omit the bourbon for a non boozy treat…but that would be just silly!

    For the non-alcoholic version, would you suggest substituting the bourbon for water (or milk, or even cream perhaps)?

      I would combine the fruit and syrup and let sit for 30 minutes to macerate. That should bring out enough liquid. But substituting 1/4 cup of another liquid should work five too. A little juice maybe? Let me know what you end up using!

    Indeed, leaving out the booze would be silly. There must be some things left reserved for adults in this world ;-)
