Lemon-Blueberry Cheesecake Pops are a delightful, easy-to-make treat that combines the creaminess of a cheesecake, the tang of lemon, and the sweetness of fresh blueberries. With a hint of crunch from the granola, this recipe transforms the classic cheesecake into a convenient, handheld dessert.
The magic starts with simmering blueberries with sugar, water, and optional lemon zest, creating a deliciously sweet and tangy blueberry compote. This compote is then swirled into a luscious mixture of cream cheese and lemon yogurt, creating beautiful patterns and distributing the fruit evenly throughout.
The mixture is spooned into paper cups and topped off with a layer of granola for a lovely crunch that mimics a cheesecake crust. A popsicle stick is added, transforming the cheesecake into a portable pop, and everything is frozen until set.
When you're ready to indulge, the paper cup peels away to reveal a beautiful, swirled cheesecake pop. Each bite offers the richness of cheesecake, the refreshing tartness of lemon yogurt, the sweetness of blueberries, and a pleasant crunch from the granola. It's the perfect, refreshing treat for a hot summer's day or any time you want a convenient yet decadent dessert.
