Celebrate the 4th of July with these Berry Cheesecake Popsicles: your favorite flavors and textures of cheesecake morphed into a frozen treat perfect for Summer.
Right now I’m sitting on the couch, criss-cross applesauce, and I have Transformers on in the background. Thinking back to when this movie first came out nine years ago (holy crap), I remember having a huge crush on Shia Labeouf. However, he was still Louis Stevens to me (yet I didn’t have a crush on him when he played Louis Stevens) – it was weird seeing him in an action movie, having grown up being used to him farting and being an idiot on Even Stevens.
So, while I’m watching (half-watching) Transformers, instead of really watching and absorbing, I’m thinking about Shia Labeouf, then Even Stevens, and now all of the shows I used to love as a kid.
If there are any 90’s kids reading this, let’s take a trip back in time… these were my favorite shows growing up (90s/early 2000s):
The Angry Beavers
The Famous Jett Jackson
Bug Juice (REMEMBER BUG JUICE??)
That’s So Raven
Boy Meets World
I officially miss my childhood.
Something else that reminds me of my childhood… popsicles.
They remind me of summers at the beach in Miami. Pool days at my grandma’s house. Popsicle juice dripping down my face as a kid. Beach hair, sand all over my feet. The good ole days!
These popsicles are a little different than your usual popsicles, though, because cheesecake. I am a huuuge fan of cheesecake, and it was so fun to make it in popsicle form. Oh, and these popsicles were so ridiculously easy! You simply put the ingredients into a blender, puree, pour, and freeze.
If you don’t have a popsicle mold, fear not – I got this one at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $10. Super cheap, and I love them because they have a little drip-proof thingy on the top of each stick. You can see it better in the photo below.
Here is a super cheap option from Amazon, as well:
These are great to have on-hand whenever you want to make popsicles (because, again, so freaking easy!!). Something I want to do, and probably will soon, is making boozy popsicles. Maybe I’ll pour some sangria into these molds… BRB doing that.
Berry Cheesecake Popsicles
- 8 oz low-fat or non-fat cream cheese
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- ¼ cup blueberries
- ¼ cup rasperries
- 2 graham crackers, crushed into crumbs
- Combine cream cheese, vanilla extract, coconut oil, and powdered sugar in blender. Puree until smooth.
- Add graham cracker crumbs and berries evenly into each mold.
- Pour popsicle 'batter' into each mold until it just about reaches the top. Leave a little room for the sticks to fit without overflowing.
- Add in sticks and place in the freezer for 4-6 hours.
- Depending on what type of mold you have - run mold one-by-one under warm water to remove plastic case from popsicles.
