There's no way to describe the looks on Kenya, Chloe, hubby's and my faces when we tasted the first peaches of the season at our local farmers' market two weeks ago. As soon as I spotted them, I think I shrieked! Actually, I know I did because my husband looked at me like I was a crazy person (he's used to it by now though, as it's generally how I act whenever I see a fruit or vegetable I love that's reappeared at the market after a long absence). But of all of the produce I adore, peaches are way up on the list and if you've ever seen my kids eat them, you'd observe that the peach doesn't fall too far from the tree.
Especially when it gets hot, I like to take really ripe fruit and make popsicles. Between the luscious strawberries and succulent peaches available at this time of year, you probably only need a dash of honey to brighten the flavor of these pops. Why spend a bunch of money on packaged popsicles made with artificial coloring and all sorts of additives when you and your kids can make these super easy, truly all-natural, refreshing pops that are the perfect treat on a warm summer's day!
