  • 3 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

Blackberry Swirl

  • 1 cup blackberries (see note 2)

    ½ cup raw cashews, soaked and rinsed, ¾ cup full-fat coconut milk, 3 tablespoons + [adjustable]2[/adjustable] teaspoons maple syrup, 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Make Blackberry Swirl: In a medium bowl, gently mash blackberries, maple syrup, and lemon juice together. (I like to keep some of the blackberries chunky for texture, but mash it as smoothly as you'd like). Taste and add more maple syrup if needed.
    1 cup blackberries, 1 teaspoon maple syrup, 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Assemble: Spoon some blackberry swirl into the bottom of each popsicle mold. Divide the cheesecake base and any remaining blackberry swirl into the molds, alternating for a marbled look. (Leave a bit of headroom in each mold, as the liquid will expand slightly as it freezes). Freeze until set.

Notes

  1. How to soak cashews: Cashews should be soaked until soft when squeezed between your fingertips. To soak cashews, either cover them with boiling water (soak for about 30 minutes) or cover them with room temperature water (soak for 6 to 8 hours).
  2. Blackberries: Fresh, sweet (ripe) blackberries recommended. Otherwise, substitute with frozen blackberries. If using frozen, make sure they're defrosted before using.
  3. Yield: One batch (1x) makes about 2.25 cups of liquid (about 6 popsicles). Yield may vary depending on the size of your popsicle mold.
