Peach, Maca and Chia Popsicles | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

Fresh, sweet, juicy peach, maca powder and chia seeds combine to create this ultimate refreshing treat. They are vegan, dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free and super easy and fun to make. Maca powder can increase your energy, boost libido, and combat fatigue. Chia seeds, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber, are among the healthiest foods on the planet. Peaches can be replaced with nectarines or summer berries.

  • 5 Ripe peaches, peeled
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp Liquid stevia
  • 1 tbsp Maca powder
  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds
  1. Scored the peaches with an X at the pointy tip of each peach. Place in boiling water for 30 seconds, then use a slotted spoon to transfer to a bowl of iced water. Pull the skin away and cut into chunks.
  2. Place peach pieces, lemon juice, liquid stevia, and maca powder into a blender and process until smooth. Stir in chia seeds.
  3. Divide the mixture into popsicle moulds and place a wooden stick into each. Freeze until frozen, at least 6 hours. | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

Beautiful Angie, love the colors in your pops..I picked up some molds but still have to make time to try some recipes xxooxx Patty

Debra Eliotseats 23/7/15 16:34

Is maca the same as matcha? Anywhoo, I have been adding chia seeds to drinks this summer but haven't even thought about putting them in popsicles! Great idea, Angie.

Sue/the view from great island 23/7/15 18:36

I just got pounds of peaches and they're sitting here waiting for a recipe like this --- I had the same question as Debra - is maca the same at matcha?

Angie Schneider 23/7/15 20:34

Debra, Sue
Maca, a root that belongs to the radish family, is most commonly available in powder form. Grown in the mountains of Peru, it has been called Peruvian ginseng.
So, no, maca and matcha (green tea) are different things.

Viviane Bauquet Farre - Food & Style 23/7/15 20:41

I like each of your popsicle recipes more than the last, Angie! I'm sure the chia seeds provide some wonderful texture to these.

Jean | 23/7/15 20:48

Angie, these sound soooo good! I love peaches and have been wanting to try chia seeds for a long time.

Cathleen 24/7/15 00:57

I love the addition of chia seeds in these popsicles!

Katalina @ Peas & Peonies 24/7/15 05:30

I have tried leaving a comment on this post so many times, not sure why its not working, but I must say that this is the best popsicle flavor I have seen and I love so much how you styled the hood, great colors, I just want this popsicles by my side all summer long!

Wow what a delicious popsicle flavour! I've been eating peaches almost everyday but never thought of using them in desserts, it's really time I change that!

Ivy 25/7/15 11:59

I have no idea what maca powder is but I will google search it. However, they do look so refreshing for the summer months and with so little calories.

Sam Hoffer / My Carolina Kitchen 25/7/15 13:34

Our local peaches have been so wonderful this year and continue to surprise me still appearing at the market. Peaches and tomatoes are my summer favorites and consequently I don't want summer to end. Love your popsicles. You always make everything so pretty Angie.
