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)…
Combine the cream, yogurt and Swerve® confectioner’s sweetener in a large bowl.
Slice the vanilla pod in half lengthwise. Open up the pod and use the back of a knife to scrape out all the seeds. Add the seeds to the cream mixture and whisk very well until the mixture is full combined. I would advise whisking to at least soft peaks as you don't want the seeds to sink to the bottom of the lolly moulds.
Pour the mixture into 6 ice lolly moulds (100ml / 3.4 fl. oz) in capacity. 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.

In short, you need not subtract anything further.
