Homemade Pumpkin Peach Popsicles and Smoothies

Our pantry purge has yielded some fantastic recipes, but this one is my absolute favorite.  My kids declared that these were the best popsicles they’ve ever eaten.  Little did they know there was a secret vegetable lurking within them! The pumpkin really brings out the peach flavor and augments the color beautifully.  Give this a try and your kids will never know!

  • 2 Cups fresh or canned peaches
  • 2 bananas (throw brown bananas in!  Overripe fruit will add the most sweetness)
  • ½ C. apple juice concentrate
  • ½ C. canned pumpkin
  • 1 Cup ice
  • 1 Cup water

Blend it up and add more fruit or juice until you like the taste and consistency.   Serve the first round as smoothies and pour the leftovers into popsicle molds for later.  It truly is delicious!

If you like this recipe, you might enjoy some of the others tucked between the covers of The Eco-nomical Baby Guide. Homemade teething cookies, pumpkin pancakes, or pear tofu pudding are just a few of the recipes for your young tot that we’ve enclosed in the book. (Of course it’s also packed with tips on buying new green gear, safe used gear, and every detail you can imagine about cloth diapering.) The book is still on sale for less than eight bucks on Amazon, which is a whopping 61% off. We’re not sure how long the crazy sale will last, but as eco-nomical souls ourselves, we hope that you get to take advantage of it!


  1. You guys amaze me. Canned pumpkin in popsicles? I’d never dream that up in a million years.

  2. Yum! I’ve never had pumpkin popsicles before, but that sounds delicious. Plus they are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, etc. Thanks for the popsicle recipe!
