It’s the perfect time to put those in-season peaches to good use with this week’s UW-Extension Peach Pops recipe. This delicious treat allows readers to stay on track with healthy eating while enjoying fresh fruit. This summer treat can engage children and be a healthier alternative to frozen treats like ice cream. Peach pops require limited ingredients, the use of a few utensils, and can be completely made in under 10 steps.

Like last week, UW-Extension developed a recipe that allowed people to dodge spending a ton of time in the kitchen with a frozen fruit smoothie. The week before, the Avocado, Potato, Grilled Chicken Salad recipe reminded readers to be resourceful when cooking. Additional recipes and resources can be found online.

“This recipe is a great way to use in-season peaches which are often on sale due to their seasonal abundance,” says Amy Macemon, from the Division of UW-Extension and the Healthy Communities Coordinator.
