Ingredients

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup creme fraiche
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar

Coating:

  • 3 graham cracker sheets
  • 3 Tablespoons rice cereal
  • 3 Tablespoons freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 4 oz white chocolate, melted

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine cream cheese, lemon juice, and creme fraiche.  Process until smooth.  Add milk, cream and 1/4 cup sugar.  Puree until smooth.

  2.  Reserve a couple slices of strawberry. Place remaining strawberries in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons sugar to sliced strawberries. Toss to combine. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes for strawberries to expel juices. Lightly mash until strawberries resemble a chunky salsa.

  3. Place a couple slices of strawberries into each popsicle mold. Fill the popsicle mold about 1/3 full of cheesecake batter. Follow with a heaping spoonful of strawberry sauce. Fill mold with more cheesecake batter, followed with more strawberry sauce. Add enough cheesecake batter until molds are almost full.

  4. Place a layer of foil over the popsicle mold. Insert wooden sticks into the mold and place in the freezer for at least 3 hours, or until popsicles are solid.

Coating:

  1. In a food processor, pulse together graham crackers, rice cereal, freeze dried strawberries and sugar.  No need to grind into a powder, leave mixture a bit chunky for texture.

  2. Drizzle melted white chocolate over frozen popsicle. Sprinkle coating over chocolate. Enjoy immediately.
