Happy Thursday everyone!! I'm so excited for the weekend. How about you??
Today's recipe is for some ah-mazing Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles! My local Walmart had strawberries for $1.25 a carton, so I took advantage, stocked up and made some strawberry recipes! There will be more to come! Keep an eye out!
My daughter and I both LOVED these and they are so easy to make. Such a perfect spring or summertime treat. They taste like mini cheesecakes, minus the graham cracker crust. The sweetness of the cream cheese goes great with the slight tartness of the strawberry layer. Enjoy!

6- 5 ounce dixie cups
6 popsicle sticks, or paper straws, cut in half
Place the strawberries and sugar in a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Set aside in a bowl.
Rinse the food processor bowl, and add the cream cheese, milk, vanilla and powdered sugar. Process until smooth.
Spoon the strawberries and cream cheese mixture into the dixie cups, alternating layers. Cups will be 3/4 full. Cover each cup with a piece of aluminum foil and cut a slit in the center. Insert popsicle stick through the aluminum foil opening. Freeze 2-3 hours until frozen through. Peel paper cup off and eat!
