Lemon-Lime Cheesecake Popsicles

(6 x 1/2 cup molds)

These refreshing frozen treats reminded me a bit of key lime cheesecake which surprised me having used just a regular lime and one lemon. I added only three tablespoons of a local wildflower honey which was the perfect amount. The resulting pops were light and not overly sweet, yet they weren't too sour or too tangy either.

1 cup milk  (I used 1%)
6 oz neufchâtel or cream cheese
1/2 cup plain yogurt
3 tbsp honey, or to taste
finely minced zest from 1 lemon and 1 lime (use a microplane, if possible)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice

Place the milk, cheese, yogurt, honey, zest and juice into a blender. Process until smooth. Taste. Add more honey, if desired.

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for several hours, (preferably overnight) or until they are frozen solid.
