These Creamy Refreshing Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles are perfect for a hot summer day or special occasion.
1 ½ cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese (room temperature)
½ cup Greek yogurt
5 tbsp honey (divided)
1 tsp lime juice (or lemon juice)
½ tsp lime zest (or lemon zest)
6 graham crackers
2 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp water (if using fresh blueberries)
If you’re using frozen blueberries, allow them to thaw at room temperature for at least an hour. Be sure to reserve 2 tablespoons of the liquid to use in the recipe. (If you use fresh blueberries, you’ll simply use 2 tablespoons of water instead.)
Put the berries, 2 tablespoons of liquid, and 1 tablespoon of honey into a small saucepan over medium heat. (If the berries are sweet enough, you don’t have to add the honey.) Cook over medium heat until the berries soften. (Stir often so they don’t burn!) Once they soften, mash about half of them with a spoon and leave the rest whole. Cook until they reach a jam-like consistency. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Place room-temperature cream cheese into a medium-sized bowl. Use a hand whisk to mix until it is creamy and smooth. Then add yogurt, 4 tablespoons of honey, lime juice (or lemon juice), and lime zest (or lemon zest), and whisk until combined. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl now and then. Set aside.
Place cookies into a zip top bag and crush with a rolling pin. After the cookies are completely crushed, place them in a small bowl and mix with 2 tablespoons of melted butter.
To assemble your popsicles, start by placing some of the blueberry mixture into each popsicle mold. Then add the cream cheese mixture until each mold is almost full. Finally, top each one with the crushed cookie mixture. Be sure to add the popsicle sticks before you place them in the freezer!
Allow to freeze for at least 6 hours.
To serve, you may need to run warm water over the popsicle molds to make it easier to remove the popsicles.
