Raspberry Peach Popsicles
These layered raspberry peach popsicles are what popsicle dreams are made of! Creamy dreamy peach swirled with bright, tangy raspberry makes for a perfect healthy popsicle!
Is everyone tired of hearing about popsicles? (Please say no!)
With heat advisories off and on all throughout summer, smoothie popsicles are my summer salvation. When it’s 110-120 degrees outside (literally), popsicles are basically my best friend/reason for living. As far as flavors go, I don’t get bored super easily, but I love experimenting with new combinations so often that it seems I always have a new favorite.
After the swirled Lava Flow Popsicles I made last year last year, I did some more swirl combinations, and these Peach Raspberry Swirl popsicles are my favorite of the moment. Creamy, dreamy peach with a kiss of vanilla and a bright, tangy raspberry swirl are what dreams are made of.
Swirl popsicles are a bit more work than single-flavored popsicles, but I think they’re worth the effort. They’re gorgeous, you get two flavors in one, and they’re remarkably satisfying to eat. Here are a few tips for the best swirl popsicles…
This healthy popsicle recipe, at a glance:
Here’s What You Need To Make These Healthy Popsicles:
- Peaches. Fresh or frozen peaches work well! We love their bright, happy color and sweet flavor.
- Banana. This adds creaminess and sweetness. If you hate banana, you can use mango instead.
- Coconut Milk. We use full-fat coconut milk (the canned coconut milk!) for creaminess. It makes the peach layer luscious and lovely and adds healthy fats. (Better for balancing blood sugar!)
- Orange Juice. Then,
- Vanilla Extract. This tiny little addition completely transforms the flavor of the peach layer. It gives it a sort of peach julius flavor. It’s DELIGHTFUL.
- Honey Or Agave. To enhance the natural sweetness of the fruit, we add a little bit of honey or agave syrup. It’s not strictly necessary if you don’t need it, and you can feel free to use sugar if you prefer!
- Raspberries. Fresh or frozen raspberries add vibrant, gorgeous color. They’re SO GOOD with the peaches.
- Lemon Juice. A bit of acidity adds brightness and enhances the flavors of the fruit. It keeps these popsicles from tasting flat.
- Water. A tiny splash helps the raspberries blend.
FAQ + Tips And Tricks For The Best Raspberry Peach Popsicles
Our Favorite Popsicle Mold – In all of my popsicle recipes I rave about this popsicle mold. It’s my all-time favorite after making literally hundreds of popsicles. The lid holds the sticks in place which helps them freeze upright. It’s also just right for this batch of popsicles.
Can I Use Frozen Fruit To Make Popsicles? Don’t worry about whether you’re using fresh or frozen fruit. Use what you have on hand (or a combination). I really love freezing my own fruit when it’s on sale and at the peak of its season for the best quality frozen fruit, but Costco comes through for me on the regular with their giant bags of organic produce. I love both. Also note that if you’re using fresh fruit, you’ll likely not use quite as much liquid, which might mean you end up with 1-2 fewer popsicles.
Sweet or Sweeter – The amount of honey (if any) that you’ll use in this recipe is entirely dependent on your own tastes and the natural sweetness of the fruit. If I’m using a juicy fresh peach at its peak, there’s a good chance that it’s sweet enough on its own, whereas a bag of frozen peaches that might be slightly underripe could use a bit more. Ditto for raspberries. Some batches are more tart than others. Let those trusty tastebuds guide you!
For more distinct layers – Try using a spoon or a small funnel to alternate adding the popsicle mixtures to your popsicle mold. I’ve found that if I try to pour straight from a liquid measuring cup or blender pitcher that they just kind of muddle together. If you’re looking for a more distinct separation, use a spoon or funnel for best results. (Also, don’t skip the sieve step for the smoothest raspberry layer!)

That looks absolutely delicious ! It’s been so hot down here in Australia, I’ll have to try that recipe!
Will be sharing this recipe in my “Inspiration Sunday” post this week 🙂
Oh, THANK YOU for sharing! I hope you love them! They’re so good in hot weather. 🙂
Unfortunately I can’t consume orange juice. Is there another fruit juice I can substitute?
Claudia – The flavor won’t have the same tropical ring to it, but you can use apple or white grape juice instead 🙂
Thanks, Emily! Maybe I’ll try it with mango to give it that tropical vibe. I love orange juice, but it is a good trigger for my migraines. 😩
Totally understand. Hope it’s a winner for you!
Looks wonderful except for that banana. Absolutely detest them. Can I sub more peaches? If so, how many. No idea how many cups in 1/2 banana.
Marlene – You can use 1/2 cup more peaches instead of banana. 🙂
