Superfood Cheesecake Popsicles (Vegan)

01 May

Hello everyone! Long time, no post, I know I know I know...I am such a horrible blogger! Well lo and behold, I try to make up for lost time and recipes. I teamed up with the wonderful vegan company, Aloha, and challenged myself to create a wonderful recipe that will also be posted on their website here.

Let me tell you what you need to know about these cheesecake popsicles:

melt in your mouth delicious

great for summer

vegan

creamy

healthy

nutritious

you definitely can substitute Aloha products with any superfood powder like acai, maqui berry, cacao powder, etc.

they do not come out the prettiest, so CHOCOLATE drizzle is a must <3

NEED TO KNOW tips for this recipe:

I HIGHLY advise everyone to wet their popsicle mold RIGHT BEFORE pouring the cheesecake 'batter' in. This allows easier, smoother releases when you pull out your popsicles.

PULL OUT SLOWLY. If you see your cheesecake lifting up in the middle FIRST, DO NOT FORCE IT OUT. I learned the hard way. Instead, place under hot water one by one so the popsicles won't melt as fast. THIS IS CRUCIAL.

food processor or a vitamix is best for the creamiest texture you'll EVER have in your mouth

When pulling the popsicles, DO NOT LEAVE IT OUT FOR TOO LONG. They may not come out smoothly. Leaving it out too long will only leave you with a popsicle stick in your hand and a cheesecake popsicle stuck in your popsicle mold.

I would love for someone to recreate this even BETTER. This was my first attempt and thought that it was really amazing, but I got lazy when I needed more ingredients. SO, there will definitely be a 2.0 for this recipe. :)

Please PLEASE try it out and let me know how it goes!
