Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s already Friday! This week just flew by. I feel like we just got to Cleveland, but we’ve already been here for a week. Fifteen days seems like a long visit, but once you start scheduling days to see all of your family and friends, it seems like there aren’t actually enough days and we are running around like crazy!

On Tuesday, we went to an Indians game. My husband really wanted to go since the Indians were playing the Angels (where he is from). I was very pleased though when he went and bought an Indians hat. I asked him if he is sure that he wants to be a Cleveland fan. Being a Cleveland sports fan is often very painful. It’s a love-hate relationship. We can’t help but love our teams, but they always seem to disappoint us!

Around the 7th inning, we saw this awfulness looming over the stadium:

Needless to say, minutes later, it started to pour which led to a rain delay. Then, it cleared up and the game started back up. Then in the 9th inning with just two outs to go, it started to pour again. We wanted to stick it out because there was supposed to be fireworks after the game. Oh, and quick sidenote: Let me just tell you guys, don’t bring your Coach bag to a game when it’s supposed to rain. I didn’t really care if I got wet, but not my poor Coach babies…

Finally the game finished up and the Indians did not disappoint us AND we got our fireworks!

Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Alright, so how about these strawberry cheesecake popsicles? Well, they are pretty darn good. My picky husband said that they weren’t really popsicles because they had a creamy texture. Really?! Whatever. What does he know anyway?!

Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles

I thought they were pretty good and they really couldn’t be easier to make! You can use regular whipped topping and cream cheese, or you can go for the reduced fat versions. I like these popsicles because it’s almost like eating some ice cream, but much easier to make and a little healthier!

Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles

Yield: Approx. 6 popsicles

Prep Time: 15 minutes (plus chill time)

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz. (1 lb.) strawberries, rinsed and stems removed
  • 1 8 oz. container whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 block (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • agave nectar or sugar (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pour strawberries into a blender. Blend until smooth. If you want your popsicles to be sweeter, add agave nectar or sugar to taste and blend again to mix. If you do not want the seeds, pour the pureed strawberries through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl. If you do not mind the seeds, pour the strawberry puree directly into a bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and whipped topping. Stir in the strawberry puree. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.

If you do not have popsicle molds, you can use small Dixie cups. Pour the mixture into the cups, insert popsicle sticks, and freeze.

    I love how easy these are to make! And I agree with you, they are totally popsicles, even if they are creamy (creamsicles!) I need to use my popsicle mold more, my kids ask for them everyday! I bet these would be a hit with them!

    Congrats on the top 9! I love live baseball games. They are so much fun and even better when they end with fireworks. Glad the rain didn’t mess things up too bad.

    I haven’t been to a game in so long! I think I need to go to a Dodgers game at some point this year.

    And dude, I’m totally loving these popsicles. It’s just what I need, especially in 90 degree plus weather!
