Smooth and creamy popsicles with a tasty tang from the yogurt, a resounding richness from the cream cheese and a fantastic fruity hit from the raspberries. (Yay for alliteration!) These raspberry cheesecake popsicles are the perfect dessert or snack to enjoy on a warm, sunny afternoon. They're also secretly healthy so you can treat yourself to a frozen delight without feeling bad in the slightest!
It's Easter weekend! Which means it's 100% definitely, totally spring. I know there's a set date when spring technically begins each year. But in my mind, winter's never quite over until the Easter bunny's been.
On a side note, apparently I'm now officially "too old for Easter eggs", according to my dad. Which I'm pretty sure is just parent-speak for "I'm done spending extortionate about of money on chocolate for you". I'm 26, so I can't really argue. I guess I now have to go out and buy my own eggs.
But instead of gorging on indulgent chocolate eggs this year, I'm going to keep things a little bit lighter with these raspberry cheesecake popsicles. Made from just 4 super-basic ingredients (yogurt, cream cheese, honey and raspberries) these popsicles are a million times better than the ones you get from the store. Plus, they're made from totally wholesome, healthy ingredients without any nasties.
If you don't have a popsicle mold, you seriously need to get one! This frozen ice pop maker set has everything you need to make your own popsicles at home (even the cute wooden sticks!) and is super cheap at just $17. As soon as it arrives, you won't be able to stop yourself making all kinds of yummy frozen treats like these raspberry cheesecake popsicles and these healthy lemon cheesecake popsicles.
If you can sense a bit of extra excitement in my writing today, you're totally right. Although I'm super-happy it's Easter, I'm even happier because I'm currently on vacation...in China! In fact, when this post goes live, I'll probably be visiting the Great Wall.
Amazing, huh? It's not exactly the best place to spend Easter. I'm pretty sure there won't be any Easter egg hunts for me to join in with there. But like I said, I am 26 so maybe it's time I gave those a miss. But it will certainly be an Easter to remember.
However you're spending your long Easter weekend, I hope it's an amazing one, full of fluffy chicks, hopping bunnies, chocolate eggs and raspberry popsicles!
