In order to make these mouth watering strawberry cheesecake pops you will need:
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of butter
8 ounces of cream cheese
2 cups of strawberries
1/3 cup of milk
1/2 cup of graham crackers
1/4 cup of Greek yogurt
Start off by mixing the 1/2 cup of graham crackers and butter in a bowl until they form a crumbly mixture and set it aside. This will later serve as a topping for your ice cream pops.
In a food processor combine your strawberries, powdered sugar, cream cheese, milk, and Greek yogurt. Combine them until they form a creamy consistency but take care not to over process them until the point where they are liquidy.
Once your mixture is blended scoop by spoonfuls into a popsicle mold. Make sure to leave 1/4 of an inch empty at the bottom. Gently press the graham cracker mixture into the base of the molds. Once you have filled all of your molds place in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
This is probably the hardest part of the recipe because you will be tempted to eat these right away! After 4 hours enjoy your ice cream pops by the pool, with friends, or as a mid night snack!
