Popsicles are a much-needed treat in the heat of summer (110 degrees last week!!!), which is why I really wanted to participate in Wit and Vinegar’s Popsicle Week. Check out the insane amount of creative ways to make popsicles over there.

How many of you played soccer when you were little? If you did, you probably remember coming off the field, red-faced, sweaty, and exhausted. Soon, a team parent placed in your sticky hands an ice-cold orange slice.

Biting into that cold orange slice was one of my favorite experiences. The juice would roll down my chin and arms and I didn’t care because there was nothing better.

As you get older, there’s no parent shoving orange slices into your hands after a workout and I forgot about the sublime experience. I re-discovered it after a hot trail run when there were some really good Cuties in the fridge.

But my grown-up taste buds needed some salt with the sweet. So I grabbed the fresh crumbled Bulgarian feta and had some with each Cutie wedge. I practically melted on the floor. The combination was insanely good and was perfect after sweating out so much salt.

Creamsicle Popsicles with Feta

These popsicles are inspired by that combo and are very creamy and smooth. There is some heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk that makes them similar to no-churn ice cream but they are lighter.

The feta is beat into the heavy whipping cream so there are salty and cheesy undertones. You can keep them smooth or toss more feta in after you’ve poured the mix into the molds.

If you are using popsicle sticks, let the molds sit in the freezer for an hour before inserting them. This way, the sticks won’t fall to the side. Run the bottom of the molds under warm water for a little bit if you have trouble pulling the popsicles out.

Keep cool out there!

  1. wouldn’t have thought to pair feta and creamsicles together, but it sounds so good! sweet/salty never goes out of style (: and yes, as a kid, loved the oranges and spray bottles. but even that wasn’t enough to make me like soccer (i’ve never been a fan of running lol).

  2. What’s summer without popsicles in the menu right! We both are on the same route my friend 😀 I too shared a creamsicle recipe today. And next up, I am going to try yours. Love feta cheese but never added in popsicles. I am so curious.

    1. 100% agree! And creamsicles are the best! They have always been my favorite.

    Meg, I loved your photo of these popsicles on IG and now I finally came to check out the recipe. It’s totally amazing. I love sweet and salty or any weird unexpected flavor combo. Awesome recipe! I’ll try, because I can’t wait to taste these 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Anja! Haha, I’m so glad you like weird unexpected flavor combos too, you’re my kind of people ❤️

  4. These are adorable and sound very tasty!!

    1. Thanks, Amanda!

    So I just had a gum graft (ow) and can’t eat anything solid for awhile.. this sounds .. SO GOOD! If I can open my mouth wide enough lololol. I never thought about putting cheese in my popsicles!

    1. I cringe in pain just thinking about a gum graft! My mom told me she feels your pain, she’s had to have three. Hope you are feeling better soon and that you can find some good none solid foods to eat. Being on a liquid diet for a long time can suck big time.
