Vegan peach and plum popsicles

The weather is warming up and I'm excited about making some sorbet and popsicles! I went out to the library and found a book called Ices: sorbets, granitas, lollies and more by Sunil Vijayakar. I found a yummy recipe for peach and plum popsicles which I made today. Unfortunately I couldn't get my hands on any fresh peaches or plums, but I bought some canned fruit in natural fruit juice. It did the job nicely. Even my brother liked them, and when I get his stamp of approval, I know I've done a good job :)
