Popsicles-6

Apple Nectarine Popsicles

July 19, 2015 | 12 comments

I am one of those people that believe peaches and nectarines should be kept strictly separate. I’ve always considered the nectarine to be an abomination to its fuzzy, juicy cousin even though the only difference is a mutation of the fuzzy gene. πŸ˜€

So why are these made with nectarines? Simple. We only had nectarines in the house and I can’t drive yet. Plus, it’s sooooo hot outside so I’m staying inside like a hermit.

Pro tip: apples + nectarines do not make a pleasant color -as you can probably tell from these pictures. Oh and also hot days are not ideal for photographing things that melllltttttt.

Popsicles

Anyways, these popsicles taste like apple and nectarines (duh) but are also laced with cinnamon which makes it taste like autumn in july (although, I did see some christmas decorations at Hobby Lobby the other day so maybe I’m not actually that out of season :D). Oh these are also so very refreshing and since they’re mostly composed of fruit, I can eat all of them right?

Notes

// You can use peaches or nectarines.
// It’s not necessary to strain the pureed fruit, but I did it for the sake of photography reasons. It does result in a smoother popsicle though πŸ˜€
// If your apple wasn’t hugggeee, I suggest you use two. Mine was nearly the size of a personal watermelon (an exaggeration, but you get the idea). I think it received too much fertilizer.

Apple Nectarine Popsicles
4 nectarines, cored
1 big apple, cored
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1/2 cup condensed milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup

Put the nectarines, apple, and lemon juice into a food processor or blender and blend until no big chunks are left. Strain through a cheesecloth if desired.

Mix in the condensed milk, cinnamon, and maple syrup and taste. If it's too sour, add in a tablespoon or two more of either condensed milk or maple syrup.

Pour into 4 popsicle molds.

Freeze until solid.

    What a lovely and healthy dessert idea! I could definitely chow down on one (or two!) of these in this hot summer weather. I don’t blame you for staying inside…plus where else is better than inside with one of these? :)

    Yo’ popsicle game = strong. These are inviting me with their meltiness! I don’t see anything wrong with the colour?! Pinky deliciousness is all I see! I’ve seen so many popsicle posts lately that I am starting to feel overwhelmed with popsicle ideas and have a strong desire to make some, even though it’s not summer here!

      It does look pink doesn’t it? πŸ˜€
      I’ve always found it interesting that the other half of the world has completely the opposite seasons :) Thank you Hannah!
