The Perfect End of Summer Recipe: Peach Jalapeño Popsicles!


Happy Fri-yay! What better way to enter weekend mode (especially in the Summer) than with a refreshing new treat to test out? I’m talking about a sweet and spicy peach jalapeño popsicle recipe… yup you heard that right! And if you’re really looking to SPICE things up why not add in a shot or two of tequila while you’re at it 😉! Today, I am so excited to welcome Tina from Simply Tina to the blog to share all of the details on this perfect end of Summer treat!

Take it away, Tina!

Hey all! I’m Tina, a holistic nutritionist and recipe developer from Simply Tina. I’m super excited to be sharing a recipe with all of you! I love creating approachable and easy-to-follow recipes with a healthier twist. I believe that food should be enjoyed no matter where you’re at on your wellness journey. Let’s be real here, what is life without enjoying delicious food, right? 

One of the things I really love creating, especially in the warmer months where I live (hey hey Ontario, Canada!), is popsicles. The possibilities are TRULY endless when it comes to recipes for them. I think it’s safe to say there are hundreds of ways you can make them. I thought I would spice things up, literally and figuratively, and try adding jalapeño into one of my recipes. That’s how these peach jalapeño popsicles were born.

Let’s also give a shoutout to peaches because, I mean, peaches! In-season peaches (July-September in Ontario) are the most delicious. They are so juicy and full of flavour. I just love the whole process of picking my favourite ones from the farmers market, bringing them home, cutting them up and enjoying them on a beautiful summer day. Pure magic. 

So, grab your favourite popsicle moulds, and let’s get started!

Sweet and Spicy: Jalapeños Peach Popsicle Recipe!

Recipe by From the Kitchen of Jillian Harris

Ingredients

  • ½ cup monk fruit sweetener (see notes)

  • ½ cup filtered water

  • 2 small jalapeños, seeded, sliced

  • Juice of 2 limes

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • 5 slightly ripened peaches, roughly sliced + 1 thinly sliced peach

Directions

  • In a small saucepan on low heat, add the monk fruit sweetener and filtered water. Stir until the sweetener is dissolved, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the sliced jalapeños and lime juice. Stir to combine. Let the mixture simmer for about 5-10 minutes so that the jalapeños get infused into the liquid. The longer you simmer, the spicier it will be. We’re making a type of a simple syrup concoction!
  • Remove from the heat and also remove the jalapeños (use a sieve so that the seeds are also removed). Let the mixture cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • Once cooled, grab your blender and add the sliced peaches (only 5 of them), jalapeño simple syrup and a pinch of sea salt. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust flavours if desired (ie. add more lime juice).
  • Grab your popsicle mould and add 2 thinly sliced peaches to each spot. Pour the peach mix into each spot to fill them up. Don’t forget to add the popsicle sticks! This mix will make 10-12 popsicles, depending on the type of mould you have and how big your peaches are.
  • Freeze for 4-6 hours or better yet overnight (if you can wait that long!).

Notes

  • Monk fruit sweetener is a white sugar replacement. There are different versions of it. Liquid, powdered and classic, which is like white sugar granules. In this recipe, I used the classic version.
