These low carb jello pops are a delicious and easy treat for summer. Only 2 ingredients and 1.1 carbs for these creamsicle pops.
It’s summertime and I want to eat ice cream everyday. Seriously. We used to have a soft serve ice cream place only two miles from our house on the bike trail. This meant we could ride our bikes there and back and call it exercise! I was in heaven that summer. However they closed it and I was sad. Anyway, I need to have a cold sweet treat in the summer and I came up with these low carb Jello pops to kill my ice cream cravings. It works! These are creamy and sweet and only have 1.1g carbs per pop. My husband even asked me if they where store bought! And did I mention they only use 2 ingredients?
I have sweet tooth. A big sweet tooth. That’s why I’m always looking for low carb sweet treats. For that reason, I have many low carb frozen treats in my repertoire, such as: Chocolate Strawberry Treats, Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Bites, Maple Walnut Freezer Fudge, Berry Cream Cheese Bites.
But I wanted to make a delicious popsicle. Ok the real reason is because I also bought two cool popsicle molds from Amazon. The first is a silicone mini pop maker (affiliate link) which I have some crazy plans for and a quality popsicle mold (affiliate link) which I used for these pops. I’m really happy with both molds but I’m trying to come up with some killer popsicle recipes so I can use them more. Unfortunately this isn’t as easy as I thought and so far this recipe has been my best. It uses sugar free Jello mix with cream. When you make it, you put it in the blender which whips the cream along with the gelatin. The result is a creamsicle type pop. It was a big hit with my family.
I made three flavors the other day: lemon, orange and strawberry. Above are the lemon that my husband loved so much.
My son preferred the orange. I think they reminded him of an orange creamsicle or an Orange Julius.
The strawberry pops were my favorite because I love berry flavors. Now for the simple recipe. I chose to use cream because it would make it creamy but also because it has less carbs than milk. You can try other milk products or almond milk but I don’t think it will be as creamy. That’s up to you. For a 4oz. packet of sugar free Jello (that’s the small box) you add 1/2 cup of boiling water and mix until the Jello is dissolved. Then you add that to a blender, along with 1 cup of cream. Blend on high until nice and creamy. Pour into your molds and freeze until they are hard. It takes at least 4 hours in the freezer.
Low Carb Jello Pops
That is my low carb Jello pops recipe. I think next time I’m going to try the sugar free pudding flavors. I know they will have more carbs than these, however they might taste more like ice cream. If you are ever looking for a low carb, cool treat, give this one a try. It satisfies a sweet tooth and will keep you cool this summer. Enjoy! Nutrition for 1 pop is:
