Cheesecake Popsicles

You know that scene in Hitch where Will Smith’s character is teaching Kevin James’ character how not to dance?

That’s totally me.

Not the Will Smith part, though.  The Kevin James part.

Despite having had years of jazz dance lessons, belly-dancing lessons, and performing on color guard, I’m pretty much the last person you want to see trying to bust a move.

Plus, I’m like super-shy, so the idea of people watching me while I attempt to “break it down” sort of makes me want to crawl in a hole.  I pretty much stick to the comfort of the “step and snap” school of dance.

Anyway, this summer we joined a swim club, so Doodle would have somewhere to go play on those hot summer days, and so that maybe the Tall Boy and I could socialize with some other couples.  Last week, we were lounging near the kid pool while Doodle splashed his way across–until Adele’s Rumor Has It came blaring over the loud speakers.  At this point, Doodle quickly switches into some kind of crazy dance mode, stomping around the pool, flinging his hands in the air, clapping, head-bobbing, and putting on quite a show.

Totally getting his freak on.

Everyone was sort of quietly giggling and smiling–’cause really, there’s almost nothing cuter than a child dancing–until he screamed out pointedly at me:

“Mom, isn’t this that song you like?”

So much for trying to impress new friends at the pool.

Anyway, another great part of being a kid?  Eating popsicles with abandon.

Except you don’t have to be a kid to eat and enjoy these popsicles–they mix up quickly, and taste just like cheesecake (bonus!).  Plus, adding in a few strawberries and blueberries makes ‘em a perfect 4th of July festive treat.

Or, you know, trying to impress your new friends at the pool.

Cheesecake Popsicles

Cheesecake Popsicles

Ingredients

  • (8) 5-ounce Dixie Cups
  • popsicle sticks
  • 8 sheets graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 (small) packages cheesecake instant pudding mix
  • 4 cups milk
  • sliced strawberries and blueberries

Instructions

  1. Crush your graham crackers into small pieces, using a food processor, blender, rolling pin--whatever you've got!
  2. Stir in melted butter to combine.
  3. Combine pudding mix and milk, whisking together until smooth.
  4. Add a small layer (a spoonful or so) of pudding mix to the bottom of your cups.
  5. Next, add a layer of your graham cracker "crust" (again, about a spoonful).
  6. On top of your graham cracker crumbs, layer in a few sliced berries. Fill cups up the rest of the way with the remaining pudding mix.
  7. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until set.

  3. Hahaha! Toooo funny! You sound just like me – super shy, no rythm. Oh well. We can dance by the pool and not impress each other together :) I AM totally impressed by these cheesecake pops, though! They are so pretty and you pictures are too perfect, I don’t know if I could actually eat one. I feel like it’s just as much of a treat to look at these guys. Well, almost ;) Great idea, Ashley!

  6. Well I’M impressed by the cheesecake pops. So easy, and Jessie and I would gobble these up QUICK. Why is it that kids dance so fearlessly but when we’re adults, we get so scared?! I used to belly dance too and I’d always try to think “you’re dancing sexy, you’re dancing sexy, don’t look weird!” and would psyche myself out ALL.THE.TIME. It’s kind of hard to try to dance “sexy” when you feel kinda silly, haha.

  9. What awesome popsicles! And believe you me, I’ve had many of those moments in public with Jordan. What’s sad is when I try and dance now, I know exactly how bad I am. Maybe it’s that I’m sober while doing it?

  10. Sadly I have no rhythm either so I avoid dancing in public at all cost!!! So, I will come sit by you at the pool and we will be the best of friends. Just make sure you bring along some of those cheesecake popsicles:-) You will make us the envy of the pool with your awesome and pretty treat! Love how easy these are!!!

  13. These cheesecake popsicles look like some tasty eats! I’m especially liking how you see the strawberry on the side and the “crumb crust.” I’ll have to give it a try. :)

  14. Beautiful popsicles!!! And by the way: I am the same not-dancer like you! ;-)

  15. These look delicious!! I am definitely trying them!

  16. Yum, these looked so delicious I had to make them right away! My store didn’t have any cheesecake flavored pudding, so I had to use a box of no bake cheesecake instead, but that was fine since it had the graham cracker crumbs included. They were so yummy, and easy and fun for the kids to help make. If I can ever find the cheesecake pudding I’ll have to make them again to see if there is much difference. Thanks for sharing!

      Tara, what a great idea to use the no bake cheesecake! I’m glad you and the kids had fun making these – my little one enjoys helping with (and eating) these, too! Thank you so much for stopping by.

  17. helen T says:

    now i know why i save all my popsicle sticks – always think i’ll use them to mark things in my garden but these cheesecake pops are such a better idea!

  18. Do you know that this person is using yours photos and recipes? http://mimitosdemama.es/helados-de-tarta-de-queso/2013/07/10/helados-de-tarta-de-queso/

  19. Does the finish product get stuck to the cup? How did you take it out so it looks so neat looking?

    thanks!

  20. Amazing! looks so good and very delicious!
