Strawberry Coconut Cheesecake Popsicles
We are just coming out of a long weekend ushering in the start of summer! As someone pointed out last week, we have fifteen weekends before Labor day and I intend to relish every single one of them. That includes eating as much summer produce as possible, spending more quality time with my family, including more experiences into our daily activities and eating more popsicles of course.
Nothing says summer like homemade popsicles and I have a new one for you to add to your collection. These strawberry coconut cheesecake popsicles are creamy, delicious and refreshing. They are the perfect snack, dessert or hot weather chiller.
I’ve made a few popsicles in my days (check out my collection HERE) and every time I combine cream cheese with a fruity blend, I am in love. The cream cheese adds a tangy flavor and creaminess that regular popsicles don’t have. You need to try it sometime. It also is great in ice cream like this blueberry cheesecake ice cream.
To our strawberry and cream cheese mixture here, I added some coconut to the mix by using coconut milk instead of whole milk. Not only is coconut great with strawberries, it also makes the pops a little healthier (but I’m sure that’s canceled out with the cream cheese!!).
Regardless, this combination of flavors is a must this summer! Add these strawberry coconut cheesecake popsicles to your list! For more popsicle ideas, check out these favorites too.
Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 can (14oz) coconut milk
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- zest of one lemon
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and halved.
- In a food processor, pulse the cream cheese until smooth.
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor. Process until strawberries are smooth.
- Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, insert popsicle sticks 3/4 of the way in and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
- To unmold, run under warm water for 30 seconds and release from the mold.
Popsicles are one of my favorite summer treats! It’s like, they feel healthy but can actually be decadent…like these!
Exactly!! So decadent and can be good for you with fruits 🙂
My parents live down the road from a strawberry farm, and even though our strawberry season is winter here (no idea why?) I think these cheesecake-like treats will go down like a dream! I can’t wait to try them!
So jealous of the strawberry farm. That would be a dream 🙂
I have all of these ingredients!! This needs to happen in my kitchen this summer!
DO IT!! And let us know how you love them!
15 weekends before Labor Day? Then I need to get going with my popsicle making! These pops look so creamy and delicious and I love that you gave them a cheesecake twist!
Hhhahah…it’s not meant to stress you 🙂 Thanks Marcie!

already counting down until labor day?! i suppose i’m not since i’m not on summer break yet (2 weeks to go!!), but yes, these sound like such a good way to usher in summer (: and i love that they’re just blend and pour kind of popsicles. the faster they get into a mold and into the freezer, the faster i get to eat (:
Hhahah I am not but more want to be aware that this season is limited! Oh yes, I am not a fan of complicated popsicles. They are supposed to be easy!!
