Celebrate the summer peach season with a batch of these Peach Cobbler Popsicles! Savor all the goodness of a warm and gooey peach cobbler in a cool and easy summer recipe!
This time of year, I could honestly put peaches on everything. Sweet summer dessert recipes filled with fresh peaches are some of life’s greatest joys! I seriously crave peach flavors all summer long, but I don’t always crave that “fresh from the oven” heat. Most of my favorite peach desserts are best served piping hot, which is not exactly appealing on a brutally hot summer night! So many summer days, I wake up bound and determined to bake a fresh peach cobbler or peach pie as a treat for the kids. But by the time Andy and I finish working outside or playing in the backyard with the kids, I am soooooo over the heat! My friend & contributor, Lauren from Going for Grace ended up creating the perfect solution! This recipe for Peach Cobbler Popsicles combines all of the delicious peach cobbler flavors in a sweet, refreshing summer treat!
Bake Your Peaches
Before you begin assembling these beautiful popsicles, you first need to bake those yummy peaches! Start with a few fresh peaches, then peel and cube each one. Don’t worry too much about getting even or super small peach pieces. They’ll actually be pureed later, so they don’t have to be perfectly cut. Once all of your peaches are cubed, toss and coat them in your honey, brown sugar, cinnamon mixture. Baking your peaches in this amazing combo will give them that ooey, gooey peach cobbler taste and texture!
How To Make Your Popsicle Mixture
After your peaches have had about 25 minutes in the oven, you’ll be ready to turn them into peach puree. Feel free to also steal a couple bites of roasted peaches before moving on to the next step ;) Use your favorite food processor or blender to carefully puree those peaches until they resemble a sweet peach juice. You can then add your peach puree to your second mixture. This mixture will be a combination of yogurt, honey, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Be sure to let this mixture chill in the fridge for a few minutes before you add it to your peaches. If you’re crunched for time, you can add these popsicle ingredients together while the peaches are baking too! Stir all of those magical pieces until everything is combined. At this point, don’t hesitate to sample your mixture! I loveeee the flavor combo of this peach popsicle recipe as is, but you can add a bit more honey or lemon to fit your tastes if needed!
How To Make Homemade Popsicles
Once you have all of your popsicle parts ready to go, you can start to make these homemade popsicles! This step is such a fun and easy one! After Lauren sent over this peach popsicle recipe, I couldn’t make it soon enough with the kids. I actually let Charlie and Claire help with this part and they loved it! We may have played around a little too much with the graham cracker crumbs and I may have sampled a little too much of the peach mixture, but we still managed to make a few popsicles in the end ;) This popsicle recipe’s flavor definitely has me in love, but its easy, kid-friendly assembly won me over! I totally recommend bringing your kids and family in as part of the popsicle assembly line! You’ll have a blast making them and an even greater time eating them! :)
Assembling Your Peach Cobbler Popsicles
Creating your Peach Cobbler Popsicles is a total breeze! Take your popsicle molds and simply spoon that delicious mixture into each one. Be sure to leave about one inch empty at the bottom of your mold! You know that amazingly crumbly top on a peach cobbler? That inch of space is for our popsicle version of that yummy peach cobbler crust. Place your graham cracker crumbs into your mold’s empty space and press them all the way down to the bottom of your mold. Don’t forget to add some more of your yogurt and honey mixture to the top of the crumbs to lock them into place! At this point, all that’s left to do is add some popsicle sticks and allow these popsicles to freeze! Your peach popsicles should spend at least four hours in the freezer. That’s definitely a big chunk of time, so you can always make them the night before a cookout, event, or busy summer night!
Don’t these Peach Cobbler Popsicles look and sound incredible? I promise they taste even better than they look! This peach recipe is guaranteed to be one of your repeat summer recipes.

Peach Cobbler Popsicles
Yield 12 Popsicles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer sliced peaches to the baking sheet and gently toss with 2 tablespoons honey, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a dash of salt. Arrange the peaches in a single layer and bake for 25 minutes or until the peaches are soft and juicy.
While baking the peaches, blend together the yogurt, ¼ cup honey, lemon juice and vanilla extract in a medium bowl. Place in fridge.
Once baked, puree the peaches and add them and the juices to the bowl of yogurt. Stir to combine.
Spoon the mixture into each of your popsicle molds, leaving one inch open at the bottom.
Place a thin layer of graham cracker crumbs into the bottom inch of each popsicle mold, pressing down slightly so that they stick into the popsicle.
Place one more spoonful of yogurt mixture on top of the graham cracker crumbs to seal them in.
Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for at least four hours or overnight.
When ready to pop out the popsicles, run a little warm water around the outside of the molds for just a few seconds and gently remove the popsicles. Enjoy immediately!
