We have homemade popsicles in the freezer at all times, even winter. They’re a quick, easy, and healthy snack. We make smoothies several times a week and I always pour whatever is left in the food processor into popsicle molds.
Recently I’ve tried my hand at making popsicles inspired by some of our favorite desserts. I LOVE cheesecake and so I decided that strawberry cheesecake popsicles would be a good one to start with. I had high hopes for the recipe I came up with and the popsicles did turn out to be a delicious treat…except that they didn’t taste like strawberry cheesecake, they tasted like strawberry shortcake! No matter – I love strawberry shortcake too and the popsicles were tasty and satisfying. My son (age 4) couldn’t get enough of them and between the two of us we easily polished off all six of them in a couple of days.
I’ve now made two versions of these popsicles. One that is a nice, smooth, basic popsicle (pictured above) and another that has layers of faux shortcake added in (see below). I like the first version. My son prefers the second. Why not make them both and decide for yourself?
