Popicles, or ice lollies as we tend to call them here in the UK, are one of my all time favourite treats – I think it stems from my love of ice cream, I just adore all frozen treats! They’re great to cool down on hot summer’s day, but I have to admit I enjoy them when it’s snowing outside too! But, today the sun is out and it’s absolutely gorgeous in London, it’s gonna be a real scorcher this weekend too – so it’s the perfect time to make some homemade popsicles and sit out in the sun.

Homemade popsicles are so much better than store bought too, you know exactly what goes into them so there’s not a metric tonne of added sugar or other crap – these Peaches ‘n’ Cream Margarita Popsicles only have 5 ingredients total, and one of them is tequila! Don’t worry, the tequila isn’t overpowering – there’s just enough so you can taste it and get that margarita feel, and little enough that they freeze well and you won’t feel like you’re doing a tequila slammer in the middle of the day! Homemade popsicles are great too because you can have whatever flavour you like, whenever you like, I doubt you’ll be finding Peaches ‘n’ Cream Margarita Popsicles in the frozen aisle on your next trip to Tesco! You will need popsicle moulds of course, but you can get them for really cheap these days and I’ve even seen people make popsicles in those reinforced muffins cups! So, what are you waiting for?

See, I told you it was easy! Homemade popsicles are the way to go clearly – easy, check! Delicious, check! Pretty, check! Alternating adding the peach mixture and yogurt mixture gives you that nice patterned effect – they still mix together a little which is nice, but the difference in densities of the liquid make them sit on top of each other so they look pretty and taste great! Peaches ‘n’ cream is obviously a classic combo, and it works delicious in popsicle and margarita form – in every delicious lick!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love how you’ve managed to marble these together perfectly – and I have a bag of peaches from the market waiting for a plan! šŸ˜€ Thanks so much for sharing at Fiesta Friday šŸ™‚ I hope you’ve got somewhere cool to sit in London? – it’s already 23.5 degrees here! Woohoo hottest UK day of 2016 yet! Ice lollies a go (I’m sure I can make them freeze faster than 8 hours?)

      Thank you!!
      It’s horrid down here, it’s been at 24 degrees but muggy and humid and the sun’s not made an appearance all day! Glad it’s nice where you are though! Definitely time for ice lollies!
      It’s gonna be even hotter tomorrow, so stick them in the freezer now ready for tomorrow hehe!

    Even though I do not drink margaritas I would love these popsicles with the cream filling. Can’t wait until the weather turns really warm and I surprise family with these lovely treats!

    There is nothing like some adult popsicles to cheer you up. So bright and delicious and since mangos are in season now here in Asia I think I am going to swap out your peaches. Loving how pretty these little guys are. Fun for a party or gathering.
