Peach Pie Yogurt Pops
Peach Pie Yogurt Pops are equivalent to frozen pie on a stick without turning on your oven to bake. It’s a great way to celebrate peach season during the summer.
Every August I look forward to picking peaches with my dad, and this year was no different.
It was a beautiful, fluffy cloud kind of day without a drop of rain in sight.
However, I was disappointed in picking peaches this year. First, the price was expensive (and sadly probably cheaper than what you would have paid in stores for the 10 pounds we picked).
Second, when we got to the orchard, the peaches weren’t soft. They told us which trees to pick from, so it’s not like we picked from the wrong trees.
Had we known what the crop was like, we wouldn’t have picked that day (they make you pay before you go to the orchards).
Also, a bee got into the bag so I made Dad take care of it (nice daughter I am, right?).
This definitely threw a wrench into my plans because that meant I had to wait for them to ripen.
That’s a big deal in recipe development world because that meant I had to majorly adjust my schedule for the week and hope I got everything I needed done.
Luckily I didn’t miss any deadlines because of this (although I’m sure I would’ve figured something out if that were the case).
I did manage to find a few soft ones that I could use right away, so first up in the kitchen were these Peach Pie Yogurt Pops.
They are similar to my popular watermelon yogurt pops but with a few more ingredients to make them taste similar to peach pie.
Frozen pie on the go without turning on your oven? Sounds great to me!
If you find yourself in the same situation where your peaches aren’t quite as soft as you’d like, put them in a brown paper bag with a banana.
The natural gases that both fruits release will accumulate in the bag, speeding up the ripening process.
Instead of using my usual popsicle mold, I opted to use 5 ounce cups aka Dixie cups.
Wrap the tops in foil and make a small hole so you can hold the sticks in place. They also make 3 ounce cups if you want smaller pops.
For smooth popsicles, make sure you peel your peaches. Check out my step by step photos on How To Peel Peaches.
Items You May Need (affiliate links):
Peach Pie Yogurt Pops
- 3 cups peeled and chopped peaches (roughly 3-4 peaches - see How To Peel Peaches.)
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/4 cup milk (optional)
- 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
- In a blender, blend together the peaches, yogurt, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, vanilla, and almond extract until smooth, 1-2 minutes. If the peaches aren't very juicy, you may need to add 1/4 cup milk to help it blend smoothly. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl, discarding any solids.
- Pour peach mixture into 5-ounce plastic cups. Cover the tops with foil then make a small hole in the center to insert wooden popsicle sticks. Alternatively, you can use a popsicle mold. Freeze until firm, preferably overnight. Before serving, roll in graham cracker crumbs.

These popsicles sound wonderful. I’ve never made popsicles because I normally don’t eat things like that, but if I do make them, these are where I’d start. For sure.
Funny because I make popsicles all the time! They are easier to make than ice cream too because you don’t need to worry about churning the mixture. Just blend and pour. Hope you give them a try!
These are too fun! I live for peaches this time of year – I’ll definitely have to give these a try! :)
Me too! August = all the peaches.
Girl, I am just LOVING the photography you did with these! That tray the ice is on is so cute!
Thanks! I’m really proud about how I came up with this one night and was excited to finally shoot it.
Now I have a huge craving for peach pie pops! Nice styling. ;) Pinned.
Who doesn’t want a peach pop? ;) Thanks!
I plan to try the peach pops but I will not put the stuff thru a sieve. I plan to leave the little bits of peaches in there and see what happens. Maybe make them more “peachy”
You’re welcome to do that too! It’s probably not as critical with this as it would be with other fruits like watermelon to catch any stray seeds, but I always strain mine.
