Peach Streusel Popsicles

This post is sponsored by Lucky Leaf, but all opinions are my own.

I don’t know about you, but it has been crazy hot in Atlanta recently. You just step into the sun and sweat like crazy. Well, these Peach Streusel Popsicles are the prefect treat on a hot day like that – cool and refreshing! Plus, with the addition of Lucky Leaf Peach Pie filling, they are the perfect summer-y fruit flavor! They’re like a peach pie in popsicle form – loaded with cinnamon and brown sugar.

I have been dying over peaches lately. It is peach season and I love baking with them, so when Lucky Leaf sent me some peach filling to bake with, I couldn’t wait! Their pie fillings are delicious and are great for using in baking.

I tried their cherry filling a few months ago in this ice cream cake and loved it. The peach filling was delicious too and the flavor is perfect in these popsicles.

The popsicles are thick and creamy in texture and full of peaches. The peach mixture is layered with a cinnamon streusel and the combination, quite frankly, rocks.

When frozen, the streusel is a little cake-like in taste and texture. The combination of creamy and cake-y is terrific and SO good!

The base begins with cream cheese and is flavored with sugar, cinnamon, sour cream, milk and cinnamon. It’s so quick and easy to mix together with a mixer. Then just stir in the pie filling – juices and all. The juices help flavor the cream cheese mixture and the peach chunks are delicious! I love the taste of them frozen.

The peach slices are a bit bigger than you need, so you can run a knife through them after you’ve mixed them in (that’s how I did it) or you can cut them up before you add them to the cream cheese mixture. The peaches are sot and eat to cut, they just need to be a little smaller so that they fit nicely into the popsicle mold.

The peach mixture is layered with the streusel – which you definitely don’t want to leave out! The bites with the peach mixture and the streusel together are my favorite! The important thing about making the streusel is to keep the butter cold when you mash it together, so that it stays crumbly.

With the pie-like flavor and streusel combo, these popsicles will satisfy many cravings all in one – ice cream, cake and pie! The perfect treat! ๐Ÿ™‚

And they’d be awesome for sharing at a BBQ or fun summer get together!

Every fourth of July, my parents have friends and neighbors over for dessert before walking over to see the neighborhood fireworks. They have all kinds of ice cream and popsicles. These popsicles must make the list this year! Homemade is always more fun and unique. ๐Ÿ™‚
