Lollies

I found an inexpensive set of lolly / popsicle moulds online, so I play around making different flavoured yogurt & cream lollies for Funnyman to enjoy. They all take so quick to make, and I wouldn’t feature any here that didn’t get his all-important Thumbs Up..

Madagascan Vanilla Cream Lollies (Low-carb)

I always have a batch of lollies for Funnyman in the freezer (they usually take me less than 10 minutes to make once a week). He loves them as after-dinner treats, and enjoying them most nights has never knocked him out of ketosis. This time, I decided to go back to basics with a simple vanilla-cream. He was not disappointed. Unlike the majority of the other lolly recipes on this site, here I used mostly double cream and only a dash of Greek yogurt for some acidity. I scraped the seeds from a good quality Madagascan vanilla pod (hence the name), but if you are on a tighter budget, you can get away with two teaspoons of vanilla essence you probably already available in your pantry. (Just be sure to check the labels: vanilla paste contains sugar)…

Chocolate Mousse Lollies (Low carb)

Creamy and chocolatey, these lollies were made with whipped cream, giving a light, airy texture which makes me rethink how I have been making all the other lollies up until now. A simple addition of confectioner’s sweetener and melted 85% Lindt®, and you have a dreamy after-dinner treat. I marked this low carb and not strictly keto, due to the presence of soy in the Lindt®. As we know, soy should be avoided on the keto lifestyle. However, if you are simply living the ‘if it fits your macros’ lifestyle, these lollies will be a great addition to your summer creations. The lolly moulds I use are 100ml / 3.4 fl. oz capacity, but there is so much air whipped into the mixture, you will only use about 70g of mixture to fill each mould. This was how the macros were calculated. I also added a few drops of chocolate essence which really lifts the flavour to another level – you will love it! NOTE: If you choose not to freeze the mixture as lollies, enjoy these as a simple chocolate mousse served up in six ramekins. Unlike other chocolate mousse recipes, these do not require any ‘setting’ time in the fridge – they can be enjoyed immediately.

Orange Blossom Lollies (Low-carb)

These creamy lollies were made with yogurt and cream and enhanced with the lovely flavour of orange blossom. I added a little orange food colouring, but that is entirely optional. These lollies come in at only 3.6g carbs per serving, and Funnyman is still happily plowing through them and still losing…

Tart Berry Yogurt Lollies (Low-carb)

Yes, I am still churning out the lollies for Funnyman, but the look on his face when he sees a batch in the freezer is worth the time spent making them – which happens to be only 5 minutes! Here, I mashed up raspberries and cooked them down a little with some lemon juice bringing a sharp tart flavour. A quick mix with powdered Erythritol (my favourite brand is Swerve®), full-fat yogurt and some double cream and we had another winner! If you like the idea of frozen yogurt & cream lollies, check out the Desserts page, as there are several other great flavours.

Creamy Keto Coconut Popsicles

I told you I was a lolly-making machine! My Homemade Keto Coconut Ice cream was so popular with Funnyman, I used the leftover mixture to make keto coconut popsicles. If you like the idea of keto lollies, do check out my Rosewater Raspberry Lollies and Blueberry Lollies, all of which make Funnyman giddy with excitement when he notices a fresh batch in the freezer… :) I struggle to find coconut cream at most stores (although ASDA sometimes has the Blue Dragon brand – which is what I used. “Creamed coconut” or “coconut block” did not work for me, so I highly encourage you to source the one I use. For your benefit, here is the link to get it online.

Keto Raspberry Rose Water Lollies

Funnyman loves his after-dinner treats so much (my Blueberry Lollies and Keto Brownies are his favourite), but I am getting bored churning them out since we started keto a few months ago, so I am now on a mission to shake things up and experiment with different flavours. These lollies were made using raspberries and rose water and I added a drop or two of pink food colouring to make them pretty! Fragrant and creamy with little tart raspberry bits throughout, you should definitely give these a try!

Funnyman wasn’t entirely convinced when I broached the subject of doing keto with me. He has a massive sweet tooth and the thought of giving up his after-dinner treats didn’t sit well with him. A client of mine in the US suggested I try Swerve® (a brand that makes confectioner’s / powdered Erythritol) as a sugar replacement in my cooking and baking and I have never looked back. After Funnyman watched the documentary MAGIC PILL in May 2018, he was amped to start. These lollies were actually the first thing I made him. Of course, I then had to become a lolly-making machine because he happily enjoys one of these most nights.
