Pumpkin Cheesecake Popsicles

Who doesn’t love a good popsicle. Anyone? I didn’t think so. Remember these Pumpkin Cheesecake Popsicles from the guest post I did over at girlichef? Well, I’m entering them into the “Think Outside the Griddle” maple recipe contest.

I believe this recipe to be a winner. I mean, it’s pumpkin cheesecake on a stick. There’s no baking involved. You don’t have to worry about cracks. And, you only need one bowl to whip up this recipe.

Oh man, you guys. These popsicles are so stinkin’ good. They taste just like pumpkin cheesecake, only frozen and on a stick.

The creamy popsicles are a combination of low-fat cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and pumpkin puree. A little pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon give them that classic pumpkin flavor that drives everybody nuts in the fall. I sweetened the pops with pure maple syrup.

Seriously, you’re gonna need these. They only take a few minutes to whip up… The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze.

If you have any leftover popsicles in your freezer (not that you will), you can turn them into a pumpkin pie smoothie by adding one popsicle to the bowl of your blender, some vanilla almond milk, and a scoop of Greek yogurt. Pulse the mixture until smooth and creamy.

Enjoy!

    Thank you so much for bringing these beautiful pumpkin beauties to the Summer of the Popsicle, Jennie! The only thing that would make them better is if I actually had one (or two) in my hand… ;)

    I’m definitely going to have to give these a try. We LOVE pumpkin cheesecake but it so not great for you–love that these are much healthier and can be enjoyed any time. Have pinned to my Pumpkin-palooza Pinterest board too!

      I’m too weak to put my molds away until next season. I crave ice cream all year long. Thanks!
