    Peach Cheesecake Pops

    Call it part cooling effect, part nostalgia, who doesn’t love an ice-cold popsicle when temperatures are soaring? (Hint: nobody.) In this fanciful version, seasonal peaches add just the right amount of natural sweetness, while ricotta makes each lick seem extra indulgent. Delicious, fruity, and creamy—it’s like summer on a stick. And these pops come together super-fast so you can spend less time sweating in the kitchen.
