Chunky Peach Popsicles

Want to find the perfect summertime treat? Cool off with these homemade peachy popsicles that will delight parents and kids alike. They are filled with chunky fresh peaches, juicy lemons/oranges and a splash of vanilla.  

Best part? You control what goes in to this icy dessert, like how much and what kind of sugar you use. My daughter's favorite thing about these Popsicles were the chunky peaches swirled throughout this icy delight.
