Mike Loucka from the Cheesecake Factory stopped by Fox 8 News in the Morning to make pineapple cheesecake popsicles.
Pineapple Cheesecake Popsicles
- 2 slices original cheesecake
- 20 oz can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
- 1 T. diced maraschino cherries
- 1/2 fresh lime
- Place 2 Slices Original cheesecake in a mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, evenly incorporate all of the cheesecake ingredients and crust together to create a filling with the consistency of a thick pudding.
- Add Crushed Pineapple with Syrup. Use spatula to evenly incorporate the Pineapple into the cheesecake mixture.
- Add Diced Maraschino Cherries.
- Squeeze juice from ½ Lime into the mixture. Use spatula to evenly incorporate the Maraschino Cherries and Lime Juice into the cheesecake mixture.
- Transfer the mixture into a pitcher with a narrow spout.
- Pour the mixture into the Popsicle Mold being careful not to fill beyond the fill line.
- Snap the popsicle sticks into place, and place filled Popsicle Mold Holder into the freezer.
- Freeze overnight.
- Remove popsicles from mold holder. Pour hot water over individual molds for approx. 30 seconds to release popsicles.
(Chef’s Tip: You could also make this recipe in a blender yielding a smoother texture to your popsicles. If you do so, add all ingredients into blender and then pulse the blender for about 1 minute being careful not to blend for too long so the mixture doesn’t get frothy)
