Strawberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Pops
#foodbloggerproblems are totally a thing. Just search the hashtag on Twitter or Instagram and you’ll see what I mean. When I first made these Strawberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Popsicles, they were full of #foodbloggerproblems. I’ve updated the photos, but scroll al the way down to the bottom and you can see the hot mess these popsicles were on my first go-around three years ago.
The first problem was my sticks. Or, well, straws. Paper straws, mind you. Paper straws aren’t even really useful for Matcha Swirl Strawberry Banana Smoothies, so what possessed me to use them as popsicle sticks? Well, I didn’t want to use the plastic sticks that came with my popsicle molds because, I mean, they don’t they look super gorgeous in the photos of these Mango Strawberry Lime Popsicles. I couldn’t find my sticks (a hideously messy studio/office is probably my true first problem), so I grabbed these paper straws. Sure they look adorable, but when the time came to unfold the pops, they were not sturdy enough to get a good grip to pull out the pops, and they got all bent and were rendered completely ineffective for actually holding a popsicle.
The second issue is photographing frozen things. I find it helpful to freeze whatever container or surface you are going to photograph frozen things in or on, so they don’t melt instantly, like I did in this Vanilla Bean Cheesecake No-Churn Ice Cream. So I whipped up these pops one afternoon, froze some platters and cookie sheets, and thought I would have time to take my pictures. Well, by the time I wrestled them out of the molds due to the stick/straw issue, the kids were in need of something, you know, like water, food, attention. So since food photography was not happening, especially with something that melts, I threw the popsicles, unmolded and uncovered, back in the freezer, thinking I’d have time later in the day or the next day.
Two weeks later, after collecting frost and maybe even a teensy weensy case of freezer burn, they totally didn’t look super-duper appetizing. Three years later, after getting some pop practice with these Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Pops, I finally decided to make the strawberry cheesecake pops look appetizing…
Strawberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Popsicles are definitely a treat that only tastes indulgent.
These pops are frosty and creamy, and filled with fruit and protein. They are sweet, but not too sweet, though you can adjust that to your preference, and based on the sweetness of your berries. And they literally take just a few second to whiz up in the blender. The hardest part will be waiting for them to freeze.
