4 Ingredient Peaches & Cream Popsicles (Dairy-Free & Sugar Free)

June 15, 2023

I’m going to be honest with you, I was never a fan of popsicles!

The sickening amount of sugar and artificial flavor, plus the icy texture just didn’t do it for me. If I wanted a cold treat, I was always team ice cream…until now.

These peaches & cream popsicles finally have that perfect creamy texture (without the dairy) thanks to coconut yogurt. The yogurt makes them indulgent like ice cream, while still having the convenience of a popsicle.

They’re the perfect healthy summer treat with only 4 ingredients (and none of them are dairy or sugar).

5 Health Benefits of Peaches

It’s peach season, the perfect time to take advantage of all the incredible health benefits of peaches.

1. Digestive Health

One medium-sized fruit provides about 2 grams of fiber. Half is soluble fiber, while the other half is insoluble (1, 2).

Insoluble fiber adds bulk to your stool and helps move food through your gut, reducing the likelihood of constipation (3).

On the other hand, soluble fiber provides food for beneficial bacteria in your intestines. In turn, these bacteria produce short-chain fatty acids which feed the cells of your gut. Short-chain fatty acids in your gut may also help reduce inflammation and improve symptoms of digestive disorders like leaky gut, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and ulcerative colitis (4, 5, 6).

2. Heart Health

Peaches may lower risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol levels (7). Studies show that peaches may bind to bile acids (compounds produced by your liver) to cholesterol.

The bound bile acids and the cholesterol they contain–are eventually excreted when you use the bathroom, which may help lower blood cholesterol levels (8).

3. Skin Health

Peaches may have protective effects that help keep your skin healthy. Studies indicate that compounds found in peaches may improve your skin’s ability to retain moisture, improving skin texture (9).

4. Immune Health

The fuzzy skin and juicy flesh of peaches contain good-for-you antioxidants, including vitamin C, polyphenols and carotenoids. Antioxidants are compounds in plants that fight cell damage, and antioxidant-rich diets can help protect your body against aging and illnesses, including cancer. 

5. Decreases Inflammation

The plant-based polyphenols (micronutrients) and prebiotics (live bacteria) that are found in peaches and other plant-based foods can decrease inflammation, which can, in turn, decrease your risk of many chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Like I mentioned earlier, my problem with popsicles was their sickeningly sweet and artificial taste. Just take a look at the ingredients in these three popular popsicles…
