Before we get to these frozen delights you MUST watch this video and if you know most of the words to this song we can be the very best of friends because, let’s be honest, 2001 was an absolute stellar year for music. Dear lord this song brings back some memories 🙂 How could I not think of this jam after making and consuming one of these delicious little popsicles? Fo real.
These are stupid easy to make and taste so yummy now that it is finally hot out in Minnesota! We didn’t get a spring this year for some reason (thanks, Momma Nature) but it is lovely and sunny and hot and I am going to make the most of it! What you should do is make these pops, then take one outside and try to eat it before it melts in the sunny sunshine. It will make you smile and if you want to make others smile you could share them! What a thought 😉
Know what is exciting? That I am about to leave for my second Paleo Potluck from our Meetup group in Minneapolis! Last month was the first event and it was super awesome meeting like-minded and like-stomached people and I can’t wait to meet even more new friends tonight! PLUS I get a smorgasbord of tasty paleo food, treats, and beverages and I can go a little hog-wild without worrying about weird ingredients or an upset tummy later! Yeah, buddy!
What you should do AFTER you make these treats (you do have to wait for them to freeze, bo-ring) go online to Meetup.com and search for a paleo group in your area! If there is one already you should join and if there isn’t one, start it up! I had been planning on starting one here but someone beat me to it while I was busy planning the trip to London and Paris. You will meet fun people and they will eat like you, pretty neat in my opinion.
Anyways, sorry I’m a rambler. Hope you love these as much as I do and just FYI, they aren’t crazy sweet so if you want the sweeter, like a “real” popsicle I would recommend increasing the honey until you’ve reached your sweet spot. No pun intended. But really, pun intended.
Peaches n’ Creamsicles
