In just 3 easy steps we have fabulous frozen cheesecake ice pops with pops of fresh strawberries either inside or blended into the mixture. Simply Blend. Pour. Freeze!

Why this recipe works

  • The cheese and cake combo! Despite the name and there being no “cake”, these creamy cheesecake popsicles are where it is at this summer! They are grain-free and made with healthier and lower fat ingredients than an authentic slice of cheesecake.
  • Perfect portions! The size of a popsicle is a perfect portion for a sweet and satisfying treat to cool down with.
  • Make plain or turn them into strawberry cheesecake popsicles! Either drop fresh slices of strawberries inside the popsicles before freezing, or blend them into the mixture.

Quick Tip

Blending strawberries into the mixture before freezing helps the popsicles not melt as quickly when eating them. Or leave them out all together or drop a few in by hand. The non-blended version does melt quicker- so lick up!
