These Bourbon Peaches & Cream Popsicles are going to make your summer happy hour, much happier! Made with Jim Beam Bourbon, fresh peaches and greek yogurt these take adult popsicles to a delicious new level!
Boozy Desserts Week wraps up today with the perfect recipe from my my friend Sara of My Imperfect Kitchen. Sara is an amazing blogger, cook and friend. You will absolutely love her blog and I encourage you to spend tons of time there poking about. But first you should meet her and check out here gorgeous Bourbon Peaches and Cream Popsicles. Perfect way to cool off and relax this weekend.
Hi everyone! I'm Sara and I blog over at My Imperfect Kitchen. My motto is: Life isn't perfect, but it should always be delicious!" My blog is all about learning new things, going on food-filled adventures and creating simple, great meals for your friends and family. And hey, if you screw up, that's ok. We'll learn how to fix it together! This is my first time guest posting for Kim and Boozy Desserts Week. (Does that make me a Virgin Lunatic?) To tell the truth, I'm kinda nervous about it, so y'all be gentle with me!
My reason for wanting to share during Boozy desserts week is because I'm a baker at heart. I bake when I'm happy, I bake when I'm sad and I bake for every other reason in-between. Desserts make me happy! However, it's been hot and humid here in Southern California over the the last few weeks. The heat I can handle, but the humidity makes my hair frizz. I don't like frizzy hair. I also don't like turning on the oven when it's this stinkin' hot. So, my virgin lunatic solution, instead of baking a Boozy Dessert for you, was to freeze a Boozy Dessert for you. Sound good? Oh it is, my friends. It's so very good!
These Bourbon Peaches & Cream Popsicles use fruit-at-the-bottom Greek Yogurt, fresh peaches and of course, a good bit of bourbon. Start by dicing up a few fresh peaches into a medium size bowl. You'll need about a cups worth and you'll want to make sure to remove the skins from the peaches too. Pour ¼ cup bourbon over the peaches and set them aside. In another bowl you're going to mix 2 cups of fruit-at-the-bottom peach flavored greek yogurt with ½ cup of heavy whipping cream. These popsicles are almost like ice-cream in texture. Combine the yogurt mixture with the boozed up peaches and stir well to combine. Pour gently into six, 4 oz popsicle molds and freeze for at least four hours. I like using fruit at the bottom yogurt for these popsicles because it adds more fruit flavor to the pops and you don't need any other sweeteners.
So there you have it! Smooth, creamy, cold, delicious booziness on a stick! Is booziness even a word? It is now!
If you did want to make your popsicles virgin-style (just like this post) simply swap the bourbon for coconut milk and you'll be good to go!
Bourbon Peaches & Cream Popsicles
- 1 cup diced fresh peaches
- ¼ cup Jim Beam Bourbon
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups fruit-at-the-bottom Peach flavored Greek Yogurt I used Chiobani
- In a medium bowl, peel and dice fresh peaches. Cover diced peaces with bourbon and set aside. In another bowl, combine heavy cream with yogurt and stir to combine. Pour boozy peaches into the bowl with the yogurt mixture and stir until creamy. Pour into six, 4 oz popsicle molds. Freeze for at least four hours.
I just want to sink my teeth into one, or twenty, of these tempting popsicles. Sara really outdid herself for this guest post. I just adore this recipe and may try to find a cheat weekend where I can partake of one of these, with the bourbon in it. The truly sad thing about my IBS is it does not tolerate alcohol consumption. So very sad.
Which is what prompted all the Booze Weeks coming up. I realize other people do like and consumer booze so it seemed like my site should have some booze friendly recipes. So I asked my blogging friends to help me out. They stepped up big time, just like they did with Seafood Week.
You can look forward to Booze Week in late August, Booze Week #2 in late September and Boozy Desserts Halloween Special Edition in October. It's going to epic fun and I cannot wait to share my boozy friends with you. I'll be the boring one sipping a virgin cocktail in the corner, and being bitter about it.
Thanks so much to Sara for taking over the blog today. It was an absolute delight. You can follow Sara's blog, My Imperfect Kitchen, to keep up with all the latest and greatest she has to offer. You can also follow her on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Toodles and smoochies! xx

One of the reasons I love guest posts is that I get to meet other amazing bloggers through my friends. I adore Sara just by reading her intro paragraph. I TOTALLY agree with her motto, I love the carefree attitude (if we mess up, we'll fix it. LOVE that!) and the "virgin lunatic" line made me snort coffee up my nose. These Jim Beam (yuuuuummmmm) peaches 'n cream popsicles look divine. Thanks so much for coming up with this brilliant theme, Kim, and for hosting all of us!
Ha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who snorted at the virgin lunatic line. I cracked up. Sara is a doll and I'm so happy she did this for me. I want to make the recipe so bad. Maybe sans alcohol for me.
I am so happy you did this Nancy. I'll email you this weekend. Right now I'm trying to figure out what's up with the blog. It's been on crack for days. Trying to sort it out and see if my tech girl can figure it out. It's been error city for days. I hate technology some days.

I am not much of a popsicle fancier, but this is one that would definitely get my attention. What a fun change of pace to serve at a party----an adult party of course. Fun recipes with the boozey deal.
I have been enjoying it.
