These homemade fresh peach popsicles are the perfectly cool and sweet frozen treat for a Summer day. Made with Flaxseed Milk, they are dairy-free and so yummy.
When Sophia was diagnosed with a dairy allergy at the age of 3, I honestly felt like the world was crashing in on me. A bit dramatic? Maybe, but I had no experience whatsoever with any type of food allergies.
While many areas of the country might be allergy-friendly, four years ago East Tennessee was definitely not. Luckily now things are a little easier to find, but at the time, it was scary.
Of course, I figured it out and we survived and she has thrived living a life without dairy products. While I now realize there are different dairy-free options, at the time we went with Almond Milk because it was the only type our local grocery store sold.
But after an allergy diagnosis like that, you start researching and learn more and more about alternative products.
I’m still learning of dairy alternatives and one I’ve found recently is flaxseed milk. Flaxseed-based milks, drinkable yogurts and yogurts that are all allergen friendly and free of nuts, dairy and soy.
Because of the flaxseed, their products are full of good-for-you Omega-3 healthy fats. Plus, they’re neutral in taste, versatile, creamy and truly downright delicious.
While we’ve been enjoying the yogurt cups and the drinkable probiotic yogurts on their own, I couldn’t wait to use the flaxmilk in a homemade popsicle recipe.
Sweet, fresh peaches are in season here in the South and we’ve been eating them in any way that we can so it only made sense to put them in a frozen treat!
We often make our own popsicles since it’s easier than finding dairy-free frozen treats and we use this fun, round popsicle mold for ours.
These Dairy-Free Fresh Peaches Popsicles seriously couldn’t be any easier to make. I cut up 2 peaches, added a splash of honey to sweeten and vanilla extract for added flavor, and Vanilla Flaxmilk.
While making your own homemade popsicles is a great way to cool off during hot days, they’re also a great way to get your kiddos to eat foods that they might not normally.
Moreaya isn’t the biggest fruit fan, but she’ll eat popsicles all day every day. Neither of the girls eat foods rich in Omega-3s, but the fact that I use the flaxseed-based milk help with that too!
I’m thinking next on our list of Popsicles-to-Make is a probiotics version with Good Karma’s Dairy Free Drinkable Yogurt. That’s one that I can really get excited about too because it would be a great way to make sure the girls are getting probiotics daily.
