Peach season is here and I highly recommend that you make these Peach Pie Popsicles while the season lasts! The fresh fruit pops will cool you off on these hot summer days and are so easy to grab and eat straight from the freezer! The freshness of the peaches combined with the savory pie crust crumbles is just about as good as you imagine. I also added a brown sugar and cinnamon layer that give this pop just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering. You have to try them!
As much as I love this recipe, and popsicles in general, I can’t believe this is my first popsicle recipe post. We’ve got a pretty great popsicle scene here in Atlanta and it’s very contagious. For the last few summers I’ve been super motivated to try my own pops at home and this one has turned out to be one of my all time favorites!
I had these gorgeous peaches on my counter and an unexpected day off work in the middle of the week, so what else is a girl to do bedsides make peach pops? Sure it takes a good bit of effort to make homemade popsicles, but I love experimenting with different flavors and being able to adjust the sweetness according to my own preferences. I never want a sugar bomb when I eat dessert. I typically want something that tastes fresh with the slightest bit of sweetness to end the day. These pops are just that.
I was excited to see how the pie crust would hold up after freezing and I was very pleased with the results. The crust doesn’t turn to mush but freezes nicely and adds a wonderful texture to the creamy pop. Also, you will definitely have some pie crust leftover to enjoy on it’s own or to add as a topping to fruit, ice cream or yogurt. Yes, please.
No need to be intimidated by this recipe. All you need is a little bit of time and some fresh peaches. Anyone could make these. Even if you don’t have a popsicle mold like this Norpro Ice Pop Maker, you can use simple household items like paper cups that can just peel away once the pops are frozen. If you go with this method, be sure to freeze the popsicles for about 30 minutes before adding the wooden sticks. This will help the sticks to stand up straight.

- 1 container peach Greek yogurt (5.3 ounces)
- ¾ cup whole milk
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 1.5 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 medium peaches, peeled and diced
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 small pie crust, baked and crumbled
- Bake the pie crust according to package/recipe directions. Meanwhile, peel and dice the peaches. Also combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
- To prepare the milk popsicle base, combine yogurt, milk, white sugar, cream, cornstarch and vanilla in a medium pot. Cook on medium-high heat until mixture comes to a simmer, whisking frequently. Once mixture starts to simmer, whisk constantly and cook an additional 2 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool a bit. Pour mixture into a large liquid measuring cup for easy pouring into molds.
- First add a layer of peaches and crumbled pie crust to each of the molds. Then add a layer of milk mixture. Use a knife or chopstick to gently stir the peaches, crust and milk together. Gently tap the molds on counter to help mixture settle. Add a layer of brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Repeat each layer, finishing with a layer of brown sugar/cinnamon on the top.
- Cover popsicles and insert wooden sticks. Then freeze overnight.
- To easily remove pops from molds, run warm water on the outside of the mold for about 5-10 seconds.
