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.

Keto Blueberry Lollies
- 150 g (5.3 oz) blueberries
- 400 g (14.1 oz) full-fat Greek yogurt
- 100 g (3.5 oz) double cream
- 2 TB Swerve® sweetener, (confectioners)
- Place the blueberries in a small pan and add a tablespoon of water. Cook them over moderate heat for 5-10 minutes, then use a potato masher to crush them. Continue to cook until you have a thick puree. Set aside to cool.
- Combine the yogurt, cream and Swerve® confectioner’s sweetener in a large bowl and mix until full combined. Fold in the blueberry mix and pour the mixture into 6 ice lolly moulds (100ml / 3.4 fl. oz) in capacity. (You will have some mixture leftover, which you can save for breakfast the next day.)
- Click the lid/stick in place of each one, and place in the freezer overnight.
- Transfer the popsicles to the fridge 30 minutes before eating or simply run hot water on the outside of the mould to make it easier to slide out.
