Almond Peach Popsicles

This is listed as a smoothie recipe in The Gluten-Free Vegan, but I find it tastes more like an almond eclair. Too sweet as a smoothie, I freeze this juice in popsicle forms and have home-made tasty popsicles. Also good as a granatia or slushie.

4 large Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
2 cups almond milk
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
8-10 almonds, chopped
3 cups pitted, chopped peaches
1-2 ice cubes
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend on high until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.

Fill popsicle forms or tubs with liquid and freeze until solid. Take out and enjoy as popsicles, granatia, or slushies.
