I agree w the first reviewer. Would not make again. My kitchen looked like a truck went thru it, I had these items out for 8 SMALL ice pops: food processor, pot to boil a peach in, sieve, stand mixer, measuring cups, measuring spoons, bowls to mix it in, ingredients, etc. Huge mess for 8 little pops. My whipping cream did the same thing, it separated and was way too sweet, which is unusual for CL....my guess is that the sugar amount of 2/3 C and only 1/3 C whipping cream is off. They tasted just ok, not good enough for all that work. I will try the chocolate recipe as I also had to buy the molds so want to use them again....

I was so excited about this recipe that I went on a "mission" to find the ice pop molds. Decided to follow the recipe exactly as written. I only have 8 molds so I figured I freeze the rest in a Pryex cup. First I got only about 1 1/4 cups of liquid from the blueberries and there was not a lot of "solids" left in the sieve (which may never come clean again) so no need to worry about excess blueberry ice. Then, even though I added the sugar gradually my whipped cream collapse and separated so the texture of the peach layer leaves a lot to be desired. The mixture only filled my little molds about 3/4 of the way up. That's not much ice pop for 140 calories. Next time (and since I have a mold there will be a next time). I will use a sugar substitute and and a fat free whipped topping in place of the cream. Will be easier and lighter. Great concept and I'll use it for inspiration.

I thought these were great! I added a strawberry layer since I didn't have very many blueberries. I thought the peach layer was fantastic. Very nice texture when frozen. Like a mousse. You have to use the remaining sugar (after adding 3 tbls to the blueberry layer) for the peach layer not the full 2/3 cup. I used 2 peaches.

These were great! And fun. Part of the enjoyment was in taking something as regular as a popsicle and creating something more interesting. Part of the fun was in how lovely they looked and how good they tasted. And they were easy to make!
