Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles

These Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles are not like your typical fruit based popsicle. Yes, they do have blueberries but they also have cream cheese which makes them more like frozen cheesecake on a stick.  Rich, creamy and a real treat. 

Popsicles and summer go hand-in- hand. Wouldn’t you agree? Cool and refreshing, they are the perfect treat on a hot summer day.

Where did popsicles originate?

Research tells us that in 1905 a kid in the San Francisco area accidentally created a ‘drink on a stick.’ Turns out he left a powdered drink outside overnight and it froze and in the morning ate it with a stick. 

Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicle Variations

  • Change up the fruit – almost any fruit will work here – strawberries, raspberries, mango, peaches, bananas.  
  • Use ricotta or pressed cottage cheese instead of cream cheese for a lighter texture and flavor
  • Add a few full sized berries to the popsicle mixture
  • Add chocolate chips to the popsicle batter
  • Dip the popsicles in melted chocolate once they have frozen completely
  • Use Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese for frozen yogurt popsicles
  • Add fresh herbs like mint or lemongrass

Tips and Tricks

  • Let the cream cheese sit on the kitchen counter while you prep the other ingredients. It will soften and blend easier. Better yet cut it into cubes so it breaks down really well in the blender. 
  • Keep a bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer. It lasts a really long time. 
  • Zest the lemon before you juice it.
  • Use fresh lemon juice instead of jarred.

How To Store Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles

The best place for popsicles is obviously the freezer. These popsicles will keep for a few weeks. 

FAQs

How long does it take for these blueberry cheesecake popsicles to freeze?

It will take quite a few hours to freeze though I usually recommend freezing them overnight just to make sure they are the right consistency. 

Can I use fresh fruit instead of frozen fruit?

Both fresh and frozen fruit will work in this recipe. I always try to keep a few berries whole to add to each popsicle. 

How Can I Make Popsicles Without A Popsicle Mold?

If you don’t have a popsicle mold, line a muffin tray with liners and then pour in the batter. Freeze as you would if you are using the popsicle mold. An ice cube tray will also work as will empty individual yogurt containers. 

How Do You Remove Popsicles From A Mold So They Don’t Break? 

If you want to make sure your popsicles don’t break when you remove them from the mold, run the mold under warm water to loosen them up. You can also take a sharp knife and run it around the edge of the popsicle so it slides out evenly. 

What kind of cream cheese works best in these popsicles?

I recommend using full fat block cream cheese in these popsicles. Low fat will work but you won’t get the same rich taste. Make sure you buy plain cream cheese. You definitely don’t want any garlic or chive flavors in your popsicles. 🙂

Can I Make Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles Vegan?

You can substitute a non-dairy cream cheese option though the flavor will be slightly different.
