Breezy Days: Strawberry Cheesecake Pops

Strawberry Cheesecake Pops

July 22, 2012

This weekend was one of the first in a while that I wasn't working, so I definitely took advantage of it!
I tried out a couple of new recipes, Stuffed Bell Peppers and Strawberry Cheesecake Pops.

So the actual recipe I found on Pinterest {...of course} is called "Raspberry Cheesecake Pops", but I couldn't find any dang raspberries at Winco and already had  truckload of strawberries at home so I decided to improv :)

ingredients 
8 oz. of raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, or cherries!
1 tablespoon of water
4 oz of low fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons of fat free milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup of powdered sugar

directions
-In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook your berry of choice with the 1 tablespoon of water for about 10 minutes or until the berry starts to fall apart

-Transfer berry & water mixture into a food processor or strong blender and puree until there are no more lumps left, then put the mixture in the fridge to cool for around 30 minutes

-Then in food processor/blender, puree the cream cheese, vanilla extra, milk, and powdered sugar until smooth. {I did a single batch, but next time would do a double batch of the 'cheesecake' mixture, just cause I wish I had more in each pop!}

-In popsicle molds, layer the berry puree and cheesecake mixture, then put into the freezer for at least 2 hours

-Enjoy at 85-90 calories a pop!!!
{Delish AND healthy, LEGIT.}

Sounds so yummy. But I don't have a good food processor, or even a decent blender... so I will either have to make these at my boyfriend's house, or buy some new kitchen appliances! :)
