I have never made popsicles before, but this summer I decided to try.  In the June issue of Bon Appetit, they featured several different types of popsicles.  I picked the Peach-Vanilla Cream Pops.  We love peaches in this house.  They are my all time favorite comfort food.  

Here are the end results of the trial run.  They were absolutely AMAZING!  I haven't made any since then, but boy are they on the list of things to repeat.  I got the molds from Target in the clearance section.  They were only 3 bucks apiece.   Here is the recipe:

Peach-Vanilla Cream Pops - Bon Appetit June 2011
makes 8-10

1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
4 cups sliced peeled ripe peaches (about 4 medium), or 16 oz. frozen sliced peaches, thawed
1/2 cup chilled heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup Greek-style yogurt
2 Tbsp. amaretto (optional)

Place sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan.  Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; add bean.  Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Transfer syrup to a small bowl; chill.  Discard vanilla bean.

Puree syrup and peaches in a food processor until smooth.  Set in a fine-mesh strainer over a medium pitcher; strain, pressing on solids to extract about 2 1/4 cups puree.  Whisk in remaining ingredients.  Divide among molds.  Cover; insert ice-pop sticks.  Freeze until firm.  Dip bottoms of molds into hot water for 20-30 seconds to loosen pops.  Remove pops from molds and serve.
