My family loves a good popsicle and over the last few years I’ve accumulated quite a few low carb ice pop recipes that I wanted to share with you today.

Different Popsicle molds to try
I have A LOT of popsicle molds and whichever one I use depends on my mood. So these are my favorite popsicle molds and why:
- silicone push up molds: This is great for any kind of popsicle you might want to make. They are easy to clean and reuse over and over again. I especially like them for thicker popsicles using smoothies or pudding pops.
- Zipsicle ice pop pouches: These are great if you want to make a bunch of freezicles using sugar free drinks, juices, pops or even alcohol pops. They are convenient and easy to use. I only use thin liquids in these though like sugar free lemonade or tea pops, etc.
- Norpro ice pop maker: This mold is nice if you want to make a large batch of popsicles and the cover is convenient for keep the popsicle sticks in place.
- Small pop molds: I like these kinds of popsicle molds because they are smaller the the Norpro pop maker. That way your pops will have less carbs per pop. Something to think about.
- Kid’s popsicle molds: I have used these for when you really want to eat a full carb ice cream but want portion control.
- Other molds: I often by molds at the dollar store if they are cute. Also Amazonhas so many cute and fun popsicle makers. I just bought my nephew a few dinosaur pops that I think he will love.
