Creamy Peach-Rosemary Ice Pops

Makes: 10 Ice Pops

For simple syrup:
½ C         Water
½ C         Sugar
1 tsp        Dried rosemary (or 3 sprigs, fresh)

8 oz        Mascarpone cheese
2 Tbsp    Greek yogurt, plain
2 Tbsp    Heavy cream
1 ½          Large peaches, peeled/diced

In a small saucepan, stir together water and sugar. Heat over medium high heat until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Remove pan from heat and stir in rosemary. Allow herbs to steep until syrup is completely cooled, about 20 minutes. Strain, separate 1/4 cup from batch and reserve remaining syrup.

Meanwhile, whisk mascarpone, yogurt, and 1/4 cup of rosemary syrup. Set aside. In a blender or food processor, puree peaches and remaining syrup until smooth.

Fill Ice pop molds by layering mascarpone mixture and fruit mixture by the spoonful until almost full. Use a skewer to “swirl” layers together slightly, but do not over stir.  Insert sticks and freeze 4-6 hours or overnight.

1½C       Mascarpone cheese (10 oz)
1   C       Feta or Blue cheese (6 oz)
⅓  C       Fresh cored pineapple, diced

1 C          Unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted
